However, running afoul of the IRS’s accountable plan rules can jeopardize these savings.

The Code had been revised after the issuance of a prior FASB statement, which served as the basis for the definition of collections in the ASC. Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2019-03, Not-for-Profit Entities (Topic 958): Updating the Definition of Collections, was issued to realign the definition used in the Master Glossary of the ASC with the definition used in the Code.
