On 13 January 2016 the International Accounting Standard Board issued a new accounting standard, called IFRS 16 - Leases. This standard replaces accounting requirements which were introduced over thirty years ago. It is a major revision of the way in which companies account for leases. The new standard is formed after multiple rounds of public consultation and has been part of collaborations with the US Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB).

The main proposal is for lessees to bring all leases onto the balance sheet and eliminate the current lessee accounting treatment for operating leases and finance leases under IAS 17. The proposals are likely to have a major impact on companies which lease significant high value items such as the airline, transport and retail sectors.

This half day course will cover the current accounting requirements under IAS 17 and then consider the accounting for such transactions under the new lease accounting exposure draft.

Learning outcomes include obtaining a greater understanding of:

  • Understanding of current accounting.
  • Scope and scope exclusions.
  • Lessee accounting under the IFRS 16 - Leases.
  • Key terminology explained.
  • Differences to current accounting treatment.
  • Practical case studies to aid understanding of proposed changes and their likely impact.
