Accounting of non-profit organizations

Non-profit organizations play an important role in society, implementing socially significant projects and initiatives. Their activities are based on the principles of altruism and are aimed at achieving socially useful goals, not at making a profit.

However, similar to commercial structures, non-profit organizations are required to keep accounting records. This process has certain features that are important to know in order to avoid mistakes and legal problems.

What organizations are non-profit?

According to Ukrainian legislation, non-profit organizations include organizations that:

  • Created for a non-commercial purpose: educational, scientific, medical, cultural, environmental, charitable, sports, religious, etc.
  • Do not distribute the received income among its members, founders, employees, other related persons.
  • They keep accounting records and prepare financial statements in accordance with the legislation.

The list of non-profit organizations includes, in particular:

  • Public associations: unions, unions, associations, etc.
  • Charitable funds.

Features of accounting of non-profit organizations

Accounting of non-profit organizations has a number of features that distinguish it from accounting in commercial structures:

  1. Accounting of income and expenses. Non-profit organizations are required to keep records of income and expenses by item in accordance with the Classifier of income and expenses of non-profit organizations, approved by the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine.
  2. Accounting for targeted funding. Funds received from the state, international organizations, donors, grants, etc. must be accounted for separately and used exclusively for their intended purpose.
  3. Preparation of financial statements: non-profit organizations prepare financial statements in the form of a Balance Sheet, a Statement of Financial Results, a Statement of Cash Flows and a Statement of Equity.
  4. Tax benefits: Some non-profit organizations are entitled to certain tax benefits, including exemptions from income tax, value added tax (VAT) and other taxes.

  • Incorrect determination and accounting of income and expenses.
  • Improper registration and storage of primary documents.
  • Violation of the procedure for using targeted funding.
