Many US publicly traded companies operating on calendar fiscal years are now expected to include leases on their balance sheets as of January 1, 2019, but are they ready? As private companies continue to prepare for the January 2020 effective date, what can they learn to expedite their own lease accounting compliance work? We’ll discuss:

  • A brief technical update on hot topics.
  • Lessons learned from panelists in their preparations to date.
  • Near- and long-term actions companies are taking to prepare for reporting and improve operational efficiency.

Participants will hear from guest speakers on these and other lessons learned as the lease accounting rule takes effect.
