Lease Accounting in NetSuite

ASC 842, IFRS 16 and GASB 87 standards present a wide range of implications that will require most operating leases to be reflected on the balance sheet. Without adequate planning and preparation, many companies will struggle to maintain and properly account for their leases if the process is not integrated into NetSuite. The potential impacts will include lost time, lost productivity and missed key dates because many companies lack the required technical accounting knowledge and will likely require a lease accounting software package.

RSM has strategic relationships with key vendors in this space. Depending on your unique needs, RSM can help you choose and implement the right solution to help with data aggregation, data cleanliness and support that will drive the timeliness and success of the lease data collection effort.
