Lease Standard

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued ASU 2016-02, Leases, (codified as ASC 842) back in 2016, after nearly a decade-long convergence project with the International Accounting Standards Board. After the pandemic-related deferral, the effective date to comply with FASB’s new lease standard is quickly approaching for non-public entities.

This Lessee video series will discuss the major changes as a result of ASC 842 and help you to understand the new lease standard for non-public business entities.

Learn about the accounting policy elections and practical expedients to consider when you transition to ASC 842 as well as a comprehensive explanation of what is a lease, components of a lease contract, lease term, lease payments, discount rates, lessee accounting, including lease classification and measurement, as well as lessee presentation and disclosure considerations.

Please note that content is subject to change based on any new updates issued after October 31, 2021.
