Increase lease accounting transparency – Implementing the updated accounting rules for leases


SKU: FOCam202. Category: .


Abstract: In late 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) postponed the implementation date for its updated rules for leases, Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), by a year for most nonpublic and nonprofit organizations. While most of these organizations won’t have to implement the changes until 2021, it’s a good idea to begin now. This article explains the steps organizations should take to ensure compliance, such as identifying all leases to pinpoint the information they’ll need to disclose and providing expanded disclosures on the nature of the leases — including related-party lease transactions, as well as finance and operating lease costs.
