IFRS 16/ASC 842

new lease accounting standards apply to financial periods from 1 January 2019

Changes to lease accounting standards

In 2016, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) announced new lease accounting standards, IFRS 16 and ASC 842 respectively, which means many of the leases previously kept off the balance sheet will have to be reported on the balance sheet going forward. This introduces a number of challenges, including:


  • new measurement criteria for lessees
  • new practical expedients
  • frequent re-measurements
  • new criteria for sub-leases
  • complex transition options

“The IASB estimates that over 85% of lease commitments held by listed companies using current IFRS Standards or US GAAP do not appear on their balance sheets.”
