The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) recently announced the release of new accounting standards that define how organizations must account for leases. Essentially, these accounting standards stipulate most leases must be reported on each company’s balance sheet, increasing the risk of regulatory noncompliance and inaccurate statutory reporting. SAP Real Estate Management is used to optimize the portfolio of global assets and supports the regulatory compliance of these new accounting rules. This solution provides a single point of entry for collection, validation of lease contract data, performs valuation calculations and generates the financial postings derived from these calculations.
The Compelling Event
• New standard on leasing released by FASB and IASB
• Need to capitalize many corporate operating leases and record these lease obligations on the balance sheet as assets and liabilities
• Boosts the amount of debt on balance sheets by tens of billions of dollars
• Beside affected accounting, new standards will transform corporate business processes in many areas, including finance, procurement, tax, treasury, legal, operations, corporate real estate and HR
Who is Affected by the New Leasing Standards?
• Every IFRS/ US-GAAP reporting company leasing real estate or equipment will be impacted by the new standards Large companies with big property portfolio are affected most and need to react quickly to prepare.
