Managing your childcare lease portfolio
Childcare facilities have many different leases, licences, easements and contracts to track. We know how important it is to manage your portfolios as closely as possible – especially when it comes to making informed decisions around growing your business.
With leases and subleases stored in all manner of places, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to produce accurate, useful, consolidated reports on your child care property and asset portfolios and to manage them efficiently.
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 operations. We expect that the childcare 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 childcare 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.
