Lease Accounting: How It Affects Your Business and Preparing for Compliance

December 5

Gain insight into how the new guidance will affect your business – now as you prepare for the compliance deadline and in the future.

Many private companies struggle to identify what’s changing as a result of the new lease accounting standards and how it impacts their business structure. They also struggle to understand how to adequately prepare for lease accounting compliance deadlines, including what steps they need to take and when. This topic will help those who are responsible for lease accounting better understand how the new guidance will affect your business – now as you prepare for the compliance deadline and in the future. We will explain what you need to be aware of while performing lease accounting, and also guide you through the difficulties of implementing a software solution. This information is critical for accountants to ensure their lease accounting software contains accurate, reliable lease financial information to generate financial reports.
