The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued the new Lease Accounting standards to increase transparency and comparability among entities by recognizing leases on the balance sheet. The new lease accounting standards will also provide more information about leasing arrangements so that users of financial statements (i.e., management, bankers, investors, etc.) can assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows from leases. These large, leased assets (and liabilities), once hidden in the footnotes, will now be placed directly on the balance sheet. Generally, financial statement users are applauding the FASB for requiring more transparency for management and investors.
