    Lease Accounting (ASC 842)

    Making the Shift to 842

    On February 25, 2016, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). Under the new standard, companies must record an asset and a liability on the balance sheet for nearly all leases. Office space, equipment, automobiles and other items that are leased will now be reflected on the balance sheet. This marks the start of a new era in accounting, causing lenders and other users of financial statements to adapt to a redefined set of liabilities.

    Understanding the Impact on Your Company

    Assessing the impact of the ASC 842 new standard for accounting for leases may be a somewhat daunting task for companies with hundreds (or even thousands) of leases. The new standard applies to embedded leases, which adds complexity to the transition. Many contracts that may not be considered a lease contain embedded lease arrangements. Assembling a schedule of leases and assessing them may require special software to even begin understanding the accounting implications.
