What follows are my assumptions only and are not based on any insider information, documents or policy.
I believe it is a general assumption here at RfM that the Morg keeps the door shut tight on finances because it wants to protect how much money it really has, how much salaries for big wigs are, perks and benefits and its for profit business practices are less about religion and more about capitalism.
Another recently developing reason for non-disclosure may be embarrassment about how tithing revenue is tanking. Imagine how the sheep would react if at every April General Conference a chart graph was shown with the decline in tithing looking like the stock market crashes of 1929 and 2008. LOL!
