Course Description

In this session, presenters from a variety of roles will come together to discuss the critical processes organizations need to consider for complete and accurate post-transition lease accounting. Panelists will explore the effects of adoption on an organization by sharing lessons they have learned and what advice they have for private companies adopting ASC 842. Finally, the participants will discuss different types of contract modifications that might impact the balance sheet and then identify how companies can leverage technology to maintain compliance for post-implementation success.
Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify what new processes will be needed to smoothly transition to the updated lease accounting requirements after implementation

  • Recognize the potential effects of adoption on critical business decisions and the resources available to aid in these decisions 

  • Evaluate the controls organizations must consider in order to promote compliance post-transition
