Far-reaching lease accounting and financial impact

For many companies, FASB ASC 842, Leases, could have far-reaching impacts on their balance sheet and income statements. Both lessees and lessors are likely to face significant, additional reporting and management burdens.

Possible impacts of ASC 842 could include:

  • Multinationals having to keep two different financial books
  • Lease administration operational and financial process changes
  • Credit ratings being affected
  • Changes to EBIDTA, debt covenants, and other KPIs such as debt to equity
  • Negative impact on ability to borrow money

Consider the following steps to start preparing today:

  • Gather an inventory of leases
  • Understand the new standards
  • Assess your current technology
  • Evaluate other implications
  • Develop an implementation timeline

Back to top

New standards may require companies to:

  • Recognize and add most leases to the balance sheet
  • Collect and reclassify certain leases
  • Report lease holdings quarterly
  • Aggregate data across multiple technology platforms
  • Abstract paper lease documents to digital versions
  • Recalculate KPIs such as EBITDA, return on assets, and debt to equity
  • Renegotiate debt covenants with lenders due to changed debt ratios
