I know there’s a lot you need to do at year end, closing the books, planning for next year not to mention reviewing budgets, preparing for your audit, pulling together your annual report, and that’s just getting started! On top of it all, the holidays mean you have to contend with vacation and holiday schedules as well as an upsurge in donations and IRS filing deadlines looming in the horizon. How can you keep everything straight? Don’t despair!

We just published our third annual Year-End Survival Guide for the Nonprofit Accountant. In it, you’ll find how-tos, helpful tips on topics like FASB and filing your Form 990, and best practices to keep your head above water during year-end and move confidently into 2018. In the guide we’ve included:

  • Your Budget: Review, Build Revise, Repeat
  • Closing the Books on 2017
  • Preparing Your Annual Report
  • Compliance Awareness
  • Pre-Audit Preparation
  • Strategic Planning for 2018
  • Human Capital Planning

Along with the guide, we’ve developed a useful timeline for you to keep up with IRS filing deadlines. Use our Tax Form Timeline to help understand what forms you need to file, along with the latest deadlines.
