Course Description

The new Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 842, Leases, was issued to replace the previous lease standard ASC 840. Thanks to the now unavoidable implementation of ASC 842 for companies under US GAAP, which requires lessees to record nearly all leases on their balance sheets, public companies are now seeing their balance sheets “blowing up.”But it’s not only publicly-traded entities being impacted. All non-public entities following US GAAP must also comply with their own ASC 842 mandates during their 2022 fiscal year.

In a recent survey, we asked more than 270 accounting and finance professionals to share their biggest priorities and roadblocks during their lease accounting transition journey. The gap between private companies who believe they are on track to comply with ASC 842 in the time remaining and those who have begun the process is surprising, especially given the firsthand experiences shared by public companies.

During this CPE webinar, we will review the results from this report, one of which is the naming of the top three concerns impacting lease accounting compliance now:

  • COVID-19 pandemic ramifications
  • Staffing and talent challenges
  • Determining the best transition options for your organization

In this CPE Accounting course, we will also share tips for how to handle those concerns while ensuring a smooth and successful transition to the new lease accounting standard.

Learning Objectives

  • To recognize the applicability of the standard and the challenges in identifying when a lease exists
  • To discuss the top three roadblocks for private company compliance.
  • To explore valuable industry insights from common concerns for the new lease accounting standard.
  • To explain benefits beyond compliance.

Recommended For

  • This Online CPE webinar is recommended for CMA, CPA (US), CIA, IAP, QIAL, CVA, ABV, CBA/MCBA, and other accounting and finance professionals who want to understand and tackle the concerns impacting lease accounting compliance.

Thank you for the information. We are a small non-profit and will be using Excel to manage our leases since we only have 5. I will definitely keep this company in mind if we ever need to look at a lease program.
