FASB's new lease standard (ASU 2016-02, Topic 842) makes significant changes in lessee accounting and disclosure. Lessor accounting only has minor changes from prior guidance. Effective in 2019 (or 2020 for nonpublic companies), most long-term leases will be capitalized on the balance sheet of lessees as right of use (ROU) assets and lease payment liabilities. This 8-hour program will take a deep dive into lease accounting based on the new guidance covering all aspects of lessee and lessor accounting and disclosures. It will also illustrate the accounting for finance and operating leases for both lessees and lessors and discuss related business implications of the new lease standard. A number of workshop cases are included for application and discussion purposes.
