New Jersey State Rules for Nonprofit Financial Audits

In New Jersey, the rules regarding when a financial audit is required for nonprofit organizations are defined by the state's regulatory framework. Understanding these rules is crucial for nonprofits in New Jersey to maintain transparency and accountability. Here's an overview of when a financial audit is mandated for nonprofits in the state of New Jersey:

  1. Annual Gross Revenue Exceeds $1,000,000: Nonprofit organizations in New Jersey with annual gross revenues exceeding $1,000,000 are required to undergo an independent financial audit. This audit is a comprehensive examination of the organization's financial statements, internal controls, and compliance with relevant laws and regulations.

  2. Government Grants and Contracts: Nonprofits that receive substantial government grants or contracts may also be subject to specific audit requirements imposed by the granting agencies. These requirements may necessitate audits even if the organization's gross revenues fall below the thresholds mentioned above.

  3. Board and Donor Expectations: In addition to state requirements, nonprofit organizations should consider the expectations of their boards, donors, and other stakeholders. Maintaining financial transparency through regular audits or reviews can enhance trust and credibility, making it a prudent practice even when not explicitly mandated by state regulations.
