The FASB's new standard, ASU 2016-02, Leases, introduces a lessee model that brings substantially all leases onto the balance sheet. Also, while retaining most of the principles of the existing lessor model in US GAAP, the new standard aligns many of those principles with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. We'll discuss:
- How to evaluate whether a contract is, or contains, a lease.
- The lessee and lessor models and other key provisions of the new standard.
- The new standard’s effective date and transition provisions.
- Important implementation considerations.
