On Friday May 19, the Office of Management & Budget issued the 2023 Compliance Supplement. This blog will review the largest changes of the various parts of the Supplement. The new Supplement is effective starting with our June 30, 2023 year ends.
GLS is very excited about the recent roll out by the Financial Accounting Foundation (FAF) of its free (and enhanced) access to the FASB Codification and the GASB’s Governmental Accounting Research System. This makes accessing and researching accounting more accessible especially for smaller entities to comply with the standards. The fact that it is free will help reduce barriers to entities following GAAP. We are excited to see the impact this change will have on smaller organizations!
