Description

Description:
Historically, lease accounting has been straightforward: a capital lease vs. an operating lease. An operating lease is treated as an off-balance sheet operating expense. The FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (ASC 842) in response to the growing need for transparency and comparability among organizations. The basic concept of ASC 842 is that leases of all types convey the right to direct the use and obtain substantially all the economic benefit of an identified asset, creating an asset and liability for lessees. Thus, the most signi?cant change requires lessees to recognize the rights and obligations resulting from all leases (greater than 12 months) as assets and liabilities on their balance sheets. Although the lessor accounting is largely unchanged from ASC 840, there are some important changes and more disclosure requirements. For example, certain principles of the lessor model are updated to align with changes to the lessee model and the revenue recognition standard (ASC 606). As a result, ASC 842 brings additional scrutiny from enterprise leaders, auditors, and regulators.

This course is designed to help you navigate the complexities of this standard. It explains ?nancial accounting and reporting requirements for lessees and lessors with specific examples to illustrate the application. It also includes public business entities' reporting responsibilities and explains how ASC 842 affects a company's financial results. Finally, it shares insights that help companies develop a reasonable leasing policy threshold, maintain effective internal control over leases, and prepare for audits.
