As the new lease accounting standards will require virtually all leases to be recorded on a company's balance sheet, a significant departure from today's off-balance sheet treatment for operating leases, it is more important than ever to know how a lease will impact a company's financial statements prior to lease execution.
The “interview-style” Lease Accounting Calculator has been designed to provide you with a better understanding of the nuances of the new lease accounting standards as they relate to real estate leases, as well as provide you with an estimate of the possible financial impact that entering into a lease can have on your financial statements.
On September 19, 2017, CBRE’s Lease Accounting Task Force hosted an open call to discuss key issues regarding the new lease accounting standards and demonstrate how to use CBRE’s Global Lease Accounting Calculator.
For your convenience, you can access a recording of the call below.
