Lease accounting for government entities (GASB 87)

In June 2017, the Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB) issued Statement No. 87, Leases. The changes required by these new rules will affect nearly all governmental entities and related GASB reporting organizations that operate as lessees, lessors, or both. GASB 87 will require a significant shift in how organizations account for leases for fiscal years beginning after Dec. 15, 2019. 

To become compliant, state and local governments and related organizations will likely require system, administrative and organizational process enhancements to sustain compliance with the new standard.
