Webinar: The New Leasing Standard - Your Questions Answered

Lease accounting underwent a major renovation in February 2016 with the release of the new leasing standard. The Financial Accounting Standards Board’s Accounting Standards Update 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) makes adjustments to several facets of lessee and lessor accounting.

In this session, we will answer frequently asked questions related to the new standard. Participants should have a basic knowledge of the new standard.

  • Distinguish different types of lease payments and how they fit into the leasing model
