Important Update for Professional View Users

When we move to the new GARS system, your existing annotations will not be migrated.
To save individual annotations, go to My Content > My Annotations and print them.


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.
