GASB Leases – What You Need to Know

The GASB recently issued a new standard on lease accounting. The goal of the new standard is to more closely align the accounting and financial reporting of leases with their economic substance. This guidance will treat all leases as “financing leases” and eliminate the difference between capital and operating leases. The standard will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, but will be important in considering new and renewed leases in the coming months and years. This course will describe the pertinent details of the new standard and the effects of implementation.

We will also include a discussion of items to consider during implementation.

The third in a five part series, this webinar will focus on Steps 3 and 4 within ASC Topic 606. Step 3 requires that an entity determine the transaction price. We will discuss some of the implementation issues regarding determining the transaction price. Step 4 then requires entities to allocate the transaction price from Step 3 and allocate it to the performance obligations identified in Step 2, which we covered in Part 2 of this webinar series. This course will cover the permitted methods of allocating.
