The effective date for the Financial Accounting Standard Board’s (FASB) new lease accounting standard is almost here. What implementation hurdles do US publicly traded companies still face in the final sprint? We’ll discuss:

  • Ongoing challenges, including operating model and organizational behavioral changes necessary for adoption of the new standard.
  • IT challenges, including globally scattered data and issues with financial software being able to centralize and apply appropriate accounting to lease data.
  • Post-implementation questions, including how to continually improve compliance processes and deciding other uses for lease data once it is centralized.

Participants will explore what other companies are doing to overcome implementation challenges before the new standard goes into effect.
