The new leasing standard is the most significant accounting change in a generation.
For lessees, it will no longer matter whether a rental agreement is a finance lease or an operating lease with IFRS 16 requiring ALL leases to be accounted for in the same way. With the creation of new assets and liabilities, the replacement of rental expense with interest and depreciation, financial information will change for all companies.
With a new definition of what constitutes a lease as well the adoption of this standard will take a significant amount of planning and time prior to the 2019 adoption date with many organisations around the world making preparations already.
With examples and case studies, participants will get a high level overview of what is needed to be do before the international financial reporting standard (IFRS) 16 comes into effect in 2019 and how to deal with the changes when it does.
This course is ideal for accountants, auditors, treasury and finance professionals, management accountants, lessors and lessees and those who need to prepare their teams for the implementation of IFRS 16.
