Adopting the new lease accounting standard: Lessons for private companies

In January 2019, Accounting Standards Codification Topic 842, the FASB’s new standard on accounting for leases, took effect for public companies with calendar year-ends. Generally, implementations took more resources and time than expected, so private companies—which will need to adopt the rule starting in 2021—should take note. In this Consumer Speaks accounting and reporting podcast, Rich Paul, Deloitte & Touche LLP’s US Audit & Assurance Consumer industry leader, speaks with Deloitte & Touche LLP Audit & Assurance partner Jeanne McGovern and Audit & Assurance senior manager Lauren Pesa. They discuss five lessons learned from public company adoption of the standard, as well as considerations for private companies in the consumer industry.
