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.
