Lease Accounting Conference

For many reporting entities, leasing is an important way to obtain access to the property. It allows lessees to finance the use of necessary assets, often simplifies the disposal of used property, and reduces a lessee’s exposure to the risks inherent in asset ownership.

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-02, Leases (ASC 842), which will replace the prior lease guidance in 2019 by providing new requirements of financial accounting and reporting for lessees and lessors.

This new standard represents the first comprehensive overhaul of lease accounting since FAS 13 was issued in 1976. The new guidance will affect entities across all industries because most companies enter into contracts that contain leases to support their business operations.

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). To minimize disruptive missteps and costly non-compliance, entities need to take a timely and thorough approach.

This CPE conference on accounting answers the following major questions:

  • How to recognize the principles of FASB ASC 842?
  • What are the requirements for identifying a contract under FASB ASC 842?
  • What are the performance obligations under FASB ASC 842?
  • How to determine and allocate lease costs under FASB ASC 842?
  • What are the lessor and lessee perspectives for applying leasing accounting policies?
  • What are the disclosure requirements?

This CPE Virtual Conference is designed to help you navigate the complexities of this standard, identify its implications of it, and prepare for transition and implementation.

This area is likely to get more attention than usual from the auditors; therefore it is critical to ensure that this section of the books is fully audit-ready. It is important to set up the right controls and processes for identifying, abstracting, classifying, and properly accounting for your leases so every audit goes smoothly. 

In this CPE session, leasing specialists from EZLease will do a deep dive into the elements of a successful lease accounting audit this time and in the coming years. We'll show you how the right information and lease accounting tools can make your audit easier.

Why Lease Accounting Is Hard

Let’s face it, lease accounting is hard. Not only does ASC 842 demand that all leases are on your balance sheet, but it poses a financial and operational risk to your finance team.

ASC 842 fundamentally changes how finance teams account for their lease liabilities and ROU assets. Your journal entries and close-the-books processes need a sustainable process in place. Part of the intent of the standard was to shed more light on “off-balance sheet” financing - which is why operating leases will be reported on balance sheets going forward in the form of those ROU assets and liabilities.

The new lease accounting standard requires more teamwork and effort from finance and real estate teams. Implementing the new guidance will also provide management better insight into the true extent of their lease obligations and lead to improvements in capital allocation, capital budgeting, and lease vs. buy decisions.

In this CPE session, we’ll talk about organizing your lease data, analyzing your lease data, and building processes and procedures for lease accounting.              

Learning Objectives

  • To analyze how ASC 842 impacts your business.
  • To explain how to avoid the most common lease accounting pitfalls.
  • To discuss practical implementation examples.
