When initially applying the net asset fzp guidance in the FSP, organizations should report the reclassification as a separate line item on the statement of activities for the reporting period.
If no unspent income has been earned in the current year or accumulated from prior years, any amounts appropriated for expenditure come from unrestricted net assets.
