General Info

Description
ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) has finally made official that financial accounting and reporting standards relevant to leases has been completely revisited and modified, both within the U.S. and internationally. The new standard eliminates one of the largest forms of off-balance sheet accounting, but requires most leases to be brought onto the balance sheet (whether classified as a financing or operating lease). This course will discuss the impact of these changing standards on both lessors and lessees. These changes will be effective for public companies for periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with all other entities having an extra year for implementation.
