IFRS 16 Frequently Asked Questions
IFRS 16 also known as International Financial Reporting Standard 16, is an accounting standard issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). It primarily focuses on lease accounting and replaces the previous standard IAS 17.
- IFRS 16 introduces significant changes in the way leases are recognized, measured, and presented in financial statements. It aims to provide a more accurate representation of an organization’s leasing activities and their impact on financial statements. The standard applies to all leases, including both lessees (the party that obtains the right to use an asset) and lessors (the party that grants the right to use an asset). For more information, check out our IFRS 16 Summary blog.
The effective date for IFRS 16, as set by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), was January 1, 2019. This means that companies were required to apply the standard to their financial statements for reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2019.
IFRS 16 applies to both lessees (the party that obtains the right to use an asset) and lessors (the party that grants the right to use an asset). It is applicable to entities that prepare their financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), which includes many countries around the world.
The standard applies to a wide range of entities, including but not limited to:
- Publicly traded companies listed on stock exchanges that follow IFRS.
- Private companies that choose to adopt IFRS voluntarily.
- Not-for-profit organizations that prepare their financial statements using IFRS.
- Government entities that follow IFRS for their financial reporting.
IFRS 16 will have a significant impact on companies that have relied on off-balance sheet financing in the form of operating leases, particularly in the airline, retail, transportation, telecommunication, and energy sectors.
