According to G all cash pass-through grants received by a governmental entity (referred to as a recipient government) are reported in its financial statements. Pass-through grants are those. The traditional fund accounting financial reporting model did not provide appropriate information for taxpayers to assess this.

    Book Description The accounting used by government entities is substantially different from the accounting used by for-profit organizations. This book describes the unique aspects of governmental accounting, including the use of funds, the modified accrual basis of accounting, and many unique financial statement formats and disclosures. Financial reporting entity changes under GASB 61 In December , the Governmental Accounting Standards Board issued Statement No. 61, The Financial Reporting Entity: Omnibus which amends the reporting standards for reporting component units in a government’s financial statements.
