Implementing GASB 96

access Our helpful GUIDE and checklist

If you’re a tribal government entity using subscription-based software, your financial statements will soon be held to a whole new accounting standard: GASB 96 – Subscription-Based IT Arrangements (SBITAs), which was issued in May 2020 by the Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB).

GASB 96 applies to government agencies that currently contract the use of cloud-based accounting and other software, including POS and videoconferencing software (like Teams or Zoom), enrollment software, data backup, remote storage, and cybersecurity tools.
