Not-For-Profit & Education

Whether you run a foundation, charity, association or community care agency, securing additional funding will significantly impact the way you operate. Each year, Chinese not-for-profit organizations are required to do more with less. Service demands continue to grow while funds become less accessible. For most agencies, understanding and complying with complex regulatory changes while growing revenue and containing costs poses significant challenges.

As shifts in financial reporting standards and funding continue to dominate the accounting arena, not-for-profit organizations face additional complexities and potential implications, including:

. Decreased funding as service demands continue to increase    
. Regulatory changes
. Increasingly complex financial reporting standards are more complex than ever    
. Governance management and succession planning
. Difficulty attracting talented volunteers and employees    
. Directors’ liability
. Cost containment    . Technology innovation
. Difficulty growing revenues and securing new sources of revenue    
. Consolidation and new business models
