CFO and Controllers SIG - New Lease Accounting Standard
Special Interest Group Event
Topic: The New Lease Accounting Standard - What you Need to Know
With significant changes transforming today's lease accounting standards, most companies will be impacted in some manner. For some, the issuance of the new standards will require widespread changes to the processes used to account for leases, and alter data requirements, measurements, and judgments. This month’s discussion will address what has changed and what companies need to know to assess the impact on their organization and develop a practical implementation plan.
