Tax-exempt organizations are held to an extremely high standard. They can expect donors, the government, the media and the general public to all scrutinize their operations. Although nonprofits usually don’t pay taxes, they do prepare an annual informational return (Federal Form 990) to showcase how they use their funds and fulfill their mission.

AGLA'S nonprofits tax experts will work closely with you on both the financial and narrative sections of this public document. We will work with you so your 990 paints an accurate and compelling picture of your nonprofit’s mission, financial health, governance standards and operational effectiveness.

Beyond our meticulous Form 990 work, we also handle all aspects of nonprofit tax planning, tax-related regulatory compliance, tax analysis and more. We guide your organization through the myriad of rules and regulations involved in maintaining its tax-exempt status, so you can focus on your important work.

International non-governmental organizations that deliver development, humanitarian and relief programs around the world face a unique set of challenges when it comes to oversight of their financial operations. Monitoring field office activity, ensuring compliance with US government regulations and monitoring strong internal controls are some considerations for executive and financial personnel as they serve communities around the world.

Accounting professionals with extensive experience working with international organizations can help ensure your programs and activities are financially sound and comply with all necessary regulations, policies and procedures, including the OMB Circulars and other relevant federal award requirements. The auditors and consultants of GRF CPAs & Advisors are unusual among accountants.

We are familiar with the requirements of domestic and international funding agencies and we also have extensive experience working with NGOs that maintain global operations. Ninety percent of our auditors have traveled internationally on behalf of GRF clients —not every auditor can say that.

As a result, we understand the conditions under which international organizations work.
