Insights to help you navigate the ASC 842 reporting requirements
On February 25, 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), its long-awaited final standard on the accounting for leases. This brings a revolutionary change in lease accounting that will affect entities across all industries.
The new standard requires lessees to recognize most leases on their balance sheet. It will also significantly affect the accounting for certain leases and may result in key impacts on an entity’s finances and operations which may mean that companies will need to implement new application solutions to manage these requirements.
