The new Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 842, leases, issued to replace the previous leases standard ASC 840. Thanks to the now required implementation of ASC 842, which demands that lessees record nearly all leases on their balance sheets, public businesses are now seeing their balance sheets “blowing up.” It’s not just public businesses, as non-public companies are being put on notice for an upcoming effective date of their own ASC 842 mandates.
The new lease standard needs to be implemented by non-public entities for years ended December 31, 2022. Implementing the standard will affect almost all balance sheets which could impact creditor analysis, loan covenants, and performance indicators.
Lessees will likely see the most significant changes as they are required to recognize substantially all leases on their balance sheets with a corresponding right-of-use asset. While lessor accounting remains similar to previous guidance in most respects, there are some important changes. For example, certain principles of the lessor model are updated to align with changes to the lessee model and the new revenue recognition standard (ASC 606).
This CPE course will focus on what companies have learned in implementing the standard.
Following are the major topics covered in this CPE Accounting webinar:
