The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB)’s forthcoming new standard on lease accounting, IFRS 16 Leases, will have broad implications across all industries, particularly for lessees.

In this webcast, a panel of professionals, featuring Patrina Buchanan from the IASB staff and EY practitioners, will discuss the requirements of IFRS 16, including:

  • How to identify a lease
  • What the impacts will be on lessees’ financial statements
  • When IFRS 16 will apply and how to transition to it

Throughout the webcast, the panel will discuss practical considerations for planning for adoption.
