Session Topic

Preparing for the second year of Leases

AASB 16 Leases is not a set-and-forget standard.  Issues that need to be considered at year’s-end include lease-term options, modifications, impairment of right-to-use assets, reassessment of lease liability, and disclosures.  There are also a proposed extension to COVID-19 rent concessions and an amendment to improve accounting for sale and leaseback transactions.

The session will:

  • Explain the standard’s moving parts that must be revisited
  • Provide examples and illustrations
  • Clarify issues that have arisen in practice, particularly for not-for-profit entities
  • Look at examples of lease disclosures, and
  • Summarise proposed changes.
