How to Prepare for the New Lease Standard

2021 Accounting & Auditing Standards Webinar

Thursday, September 30th, 2021


Operating leases are no longer a footnote: the new lease standard is coming – and fast. The long-discussed (and postponed) accounting standard on leases goes into effect for most non-public entities on January 1, 2022.

In this compelling virtual event, assurance thought leaders and Barnes Dennig Directors Tom Groskopf and Matt Rosen take an in-depth look at the new standard – and how to prepare for it.

In this 100-minute session, Tom and Matt cover:

  • The new – and complex – accounting rules for leases, including the new definition for what constitutes a lease
  • The financial statement implications of the new standard, and how this may impact statement users
  • Considerations on how to implement the new standard and the controls necessary to accurately report leases
  • An update on the status of the LIBOR benchmark rate and how to prepare for its retirement
