IFRS 16 For Leases

Are you ready to take your financial reporting to the next level? Attend the IFRS 16 Leases Workshop, where you will gain valuable insights on the most significant change to lease accounting in more than 30 years.

With the introduction of the IFRS 16 accounting standard, lease accounting for all companies that report under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) has been impacted. This means that companies can no longer classify leases as operating or finance leases, as all leases now appear on the balance sheet. However, the exemptions for short-term leases without purchase options or low-value assets still apply.  This change results in greater transparency and provides users of financial statements with more informed comparisons between companies in particular sectors. Financial statements will now more faithfully reflect economic reality, making it easier for investors to evaluate and compare companies.

Moreover, the implementation of IFRS 16 (ASC 842 under US GAAP) results in an increase in assets, liabilities, and net debt, which can affect key accounting and financial ratios, impacting a company’s attractiveness to investors and its ability to raise finance. By attending the IFRS 16 Leases Workshop, you will learn how to navigate these changes and optimize your financial reporting to improve your company’s financial position.

Don’t miss this opportunity to stay up-to-date on the latest lease accounting standards and take your financial reporting to the next level. Register now for the IFRS 16 Leases Workshop and gain a competitive advantage in your industry.
