Professional View—Important Update

Coming Soon! The FAF is pleased to announce that we will be launching a new Governmental Accounting Research System™ (GARS), which will be available for free to all users. As a result, we will eliminate the paid GARS Online Professional View offering. We are no longer accepting any new or renewed Professional View subscriptions. Click here for more details.

Note for Existing Professional View Users

  • When we move to the new system, your annotations and bookmarks will not be migrated. Please be sure to save,offline, any of your personalized content in advance of the cutover.
  • Existing subscribers will continue to have access to Professional View until we release the new enhanced free version.
  • Please contact with any questions about accessing your account.


The Financial Accounting Foundation has simplified access to the GASB GARS Basic View by removing the username/password requirements. User credentials can still be used to access existing user accounts in our webstore. Access to digital content remains subject to terms of use.
