Description:

The new lease accounting standards from the FASB & IASB will have far reaching financial and organizational implications for companies of all sizes, and will also greatly impact the advice and counsel their advisors and attorneys provide.

These new lease accounting standards require all parties to a lease, and their advisors, to understand how concepts such as how a renewal option can result in a 10 year lease being accounted for as though it were a 20 year lease, with a near doubling of the impact on the company's balance sheet and other financial results.

Importantly, the impacts are not just financial in nature, and the non-financial and organizational impacts are widely expected to affect the following: governance, risk and compliance, internal controls, accounting policies, SEC reporting and M&A activity.

Many of these areas are most affected by the subjective nature of many aspects of the new rules and the transition from old accounting standards, policies and procedures to the new standards. Understanding these issues will be critical for purposes of helping companies successfully navigate the accounting, reporting and regulatory waters ahead.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
