The buzz: “Never call an accountant a credit to his profession; a good accountant is a debit to his profession.” (Charles Lyell)

Corporate accountants are managing a perfect storm of financial regulations with the upcoming IFRS 15, IFRS 9, and IFRS 16. Any one is difficult at best; all three can be overwhelming.

Today we’ll focus on IFRS16/ASC 842. Leasing is an important and widely used financing solution. IFRS16 mandates lessees to recognize operational leases on the balance sheet. Your company has a small window to ensure compliance by January 1, 2019 with a two-year comparative period. Get ready. Get set.
