IFRS Masterclass - AASB 16 Leases


IFRS Masterclass - AASB 16 Leases

AASB 16 is here!

With AASB 16 being applicable from 1 July 2019 for most Australian entities, it is time that finance teams move from the high level theory to a comprehensive understanding of how to apply the standard.

Most finance teams are on top of the big picture story of AASB 16. However, very few finance teams have come to terms with the practicalities of its application and how the new lease accounting model will change key financial metrics and KPIs and introduce volatility to the balance sheet and profit or loss due to continual re-measurement requirements.
