IFRS16: The perfect experience of lease accounting


What is IFRS16?

IFRS 16 is a new standard promulgated by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) to close the major accounting loophole from IAS 17: off-balance sheet operating leases. According to the document, any property or piece of equipment that a business has the right to use exclusively for a predetermined period of time will now be recognised as an asset and therefore included in the balance sheet.

Which sectors and groups will be most influenced by IFRS 16?

The new leases standard, IFRS 16, could prompt significant changes to many businesses across a variety of industry sectors, especially retail, transportation, airline and banking. 

How the new standard will impact corporate valuation?

IFRS 16 will change the company’s balance sheet, income statement and cash flow statement. Commonly used financial indicators will also change, which will affect the company’s “purchase or lease” decision.
