lease accounting


Leases play a role, either directly or indirectly, in nearly every transaction we undertake. As the top full-service commercial real estate firm, it is imperative that we understand the how lease accounting will affect our clients. FASB’s Lease Accounting guidelines were revamped for the first time in over four decades and have resulted in commercial real estate becoming much more integral with corporate treasury and finance. The new lease accounting standards require virtually all leases to be capitalized on the balance sheets of lessees. This sea change has led to corporate occupiers viewing their owned and leased real estate in a much more strategic light. Occupancy is now playing a critical role, not only in Operations, but in Treasury and Finance decisions as well. Understanding the guidelines and their sweeping impact on our clients’ books is paramount to providing the world-class service expected from CBRE.

Purpose: Helping CBRE and its clients navigate the new lease accounting standards and structure transactions to ensure corporate objectives are being met. 

Why: Leasing impacts all facets of our business and touches many of our service lines

Tools and Technology

CBRE’s proprietary Lease Accounting Calculator gives users a real-time tool to analyze the financial impact of one or more leases. This will ensure that our clients understand the ramifications of entering into a lease and make the decision that allows them to meet their operational goals.
