Lease Accounting has been a pretty active buzzword lately thanks to FASB/IASB’s new leasing standards released earlier this year. The corporate world has started the necessary changes in their leasing contracts and accounting practices to adhere to these new norms which will become applicable starting in 2019.

It might sound safely distant in the future, but companies will be required to provide three years of income statements and two years of balance sheet comparable. To be compliant in time, it is crucial for you to get your plan in place and work towards fulfilling the requirements as laid down in the new standards.
