What the FASB recent accounting pronouncements mean for our clients

Changes to the FASB code will now require companies to report both finance (capital) leases and operating leases on their balance sheets. This FASB lease accounting change is primarily anticipated to affect lessees, with fewer impacts on the lessors. Now, for your FASB lease reporting, organizations must provide the following information for operations leases:

  • Classification of all cash payments associated with operating activities in your cash flow statement
  • Recognition of a single cost, with the cost of the lease spread in-line over the term of the leas
  • Right-of-use and lease liability

These updates are unlikely to prevent businesses from obtaining the necessary resources for conducting everyday business, but they could significantly affect your reporting structures. These data-driven changes require support from a tech partner that can help your business carefully track material and real estate leases — they require help from Visual Lease.
