Financial Reporting Suite: Revenue and Leases - Workshop 2018

Identifier: 75666464

Duration: 1 day

Language: English




FRS 116, ‘Leases’, replaces the current guidance in FRS 17. Under FRS 16, lessees have to recognise a lease liability reflecting future lease payments and a ‘right-of-use asset’ for almost all lease contracts. This is a significant change compared to FRS 17 under which lessees were required to make a distinction between a finance lease (on balance sheet) and an operating lease (off balance sheet). FRS 116 contains an optional exemption for certain short-term leases and leases of low-value assets; however, this exemption can only be applied by lessees. This new lease standard will be required for reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019.

This workshop comprises lecture-cum-discussions, Q&A sessions, examples and case studies.
