Managing your Lease Portfolio

  • Does your company hold a significant number of leased assets and/or property leases, specifically over 50?
  • Does your financial department continue to rely on Excel for lease accounting management and adherence to regulations like IFRS 16 (AASB 16)?
  • Do your property and finance teams maintain open lines of communication and exchange lease-related information with one another?


In our experience, utility lease portfolios are extensive and intricate, encompassing leases, licenses, easements, and resource consents across a diverse range of assets, properties, and sites.

Lease agreements for assets like power plants, transmission lines, substations, water treatment facilities, and renewable energy installations can be particularly complex.

It’s crucial to manage your portfolios diligently to make informed business decisions. With agreements stored in various locations, each featuring different termination dates, renewal options, and rates, consolidating accurate, insightful reports on your utilities, property, and asset portfolios can be challenging, if not unattainable.

IFRS 16 (AASB 16): Ongoing Impacts and Adaptations in Lease Accounting

As IFRS 16 (AASB 16) has been in effect for some time now, businesses in the utilities industry have had to adapt to its ongoing implications. IFRS 16, the lease accounting standard, has been effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019. This change in lease accounting can significantly impact the composition of your balance sheet, making leases one of the most material items.

The requirements of IFRS 16 have a direct effect on the financial performance and value of your company in the utilities sector. It is crucial to comply with IFRS 16 standards in your business and utilities operations. As a result, the utilities industry may experience an increase in recognized assets and liabilities, a shift in lease expense recognition from later to earlier periods of a lease, changes in lease expense classification and amortization, and an increase in net debt/EBIT/EBITDA ratios.

Given the complexity involved in the ongoing lease accounting under IFRS 16, we recommend that those operating in the utilities sector invest in a lease management and lease accounting platform to help achieve IFRS 16 compliance. Our software ensures that your lease portfolio is up to date with actionable notifications, enabling you to meet protocol milestones confidently.
