The new International Financial Reporting Standard on leasing (IFRS 16) is effective for accounting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019.

This will have a significant impact on lessees, especially those with 50 or more leases operating in the transportation, infrastructure, retail, mining, telecommunications, retail, hospitality, education, corporate and government sectors.

Many companies significantly underestimate how complex the transition and ongoing reporting requirements are. For finance teams, month and year-end are already daunting enough – but now they’re about to become more difficult and time-consuming.

That’s why the Big 4 accounting firms are recommending lessees invest in IFRS 16 compliant lease accounting software. Despite mounting complexity, some finance teams are reluctant to look at software options. We’re going to share five things – well actually eight things – they will love about IFRS 16 compliant lease accounting software. Trust us, there are more than eight things, but we’ve selected some that will resonate with anyone tackling IFRS 16.
