CHANGES TO LEASE ACCOUNTING – IFRS 16

In addition to the regular challenges of lease management, businesses are faced with the introduction of IFRS 16. IFRS 16 is the recent lease accounting standard effective from annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019. The change to lease accounting could make leases the most material item on your balance sheet.

The new requirements of IFRS 16 will directly impact the financial performance and value of your company. It is essential to adhere to the IFRS 16 standards in your business and aviation operations. We expect that the aviation sector will experience an increase in recognised assets and liabilities, more lease expenses recognised in earlier periods of a lease and less in later periods, a shift in lease expense classification and amortisation, and an increase in net debt/EBIT/EBITDA ratios.

Given the complexity involved in the introduction and additional requirements of the ongoing accounting of leases under IFRS 16, we recommend those operating in the aviation sector invest in a lease management and lease accounting platform which can help you achieve IFRS 16 compliance. Our software will ensure that your portfolio of leases is up to date with easily actionable notifications that help you meet protocol milestones with confidence.

What is IFRS 16 in relation to the aviation sector? 

IFRS 16 is an accounting standard that necessitates the recognition of assets and liabilities relating to the obligations detailed within a lease contract. IFRS 16 reports details of lease transactions and provides financial statements before acknowledging, assessing, reporting, and disclosing leases. 

The mandatory application of IFRS 16 will have a direct impact on the financial performance of businesses within the aviation sector. Since the mandatory introduction of IFRS 16, the aviation sector has experienced an increase in recognised assets and liabilities, more lease expenses recognised in earlier periods of a lease and less in later periods, a shift in lease expense classification and amortisation, and an increase in net debt/EBIT/EBITDA ratios. 

Since the introduction of IFRS, it is critical that enterprises within the aviation sector adhere to the IFRS guidelines throughout aviation business operations.
