What is lease accounting?

Lease accounting is the recognition of the transactions and balances associated with lease contracts and events for a business’ financial reporting. Both lessors and lessees are required to account for lease transactions, though each in different ways. With the introduction of IFRS 16 (AASB 16), lessees are required to recognise a lease liability and a right of use asset, while little has changed for lessors, who continue to differentiate between operating and finance leases.

What is lease accounting software?

Lease accounting software is a tool that empowers enterprises to manage their lease portfolio more effectively. Lease accounting software is designed to centralise information and effectively automate previously manual administrative tasks. Lease accounting software assists businesses in managing their lease and accounting regulations. 
The software eliminates the requirement for paper trails, and most quality software will set reminders for the business’ upcoming financial milestones to ensure that critical dates are never overlooked. 

What is IFRS 16?

Under IFRS 16, lessees are required to recognise a lease liability for the future expected lease payments as well as a corresponding asset that represents their right to use the leased asset.
The lease liability is based on the present value of the future fixed and in substance fixed lease payments. The liability is an amortising liability whereby interest is accrued and expensed over the life of the lease.
The right-of-use asset is equal to the lease liability at the beginning of the lease liability calculations (subject to any prepayments, initial direct costs incurred, and estimated restoration obligations) and is depreciated on a systematic basis over its useful life.
