The new IFRS on leases is expected to have a significant impact on many companies – virtually all leases will now need to be recognised on the balance sheet, with profit or loss and cash flow impacted by new requirements as well.
This workshop introduces the fundamentals of the new standard and some of the practical considerations for implementation.
Participants will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge of the requirements of the new standard, which has introduced a new definition of a lease and new accounting for lessees.
The seminar provides preparers and auditors with an opportunity to learn more about both the theory and practical application in an interactive environment with an expert speaker.
Who should attend
Participants will receive a certificate for successful participation indicating all topics covered
