How to prepare for the new lease accounting standard

So, what can you expect with the deadline for IFRS and FASB regulations? First, you should know that your company is required to comply with new lease standard summary guidelines for all leases that will be active during fiscal years after Dec. 15, 2018.

Leases that conclude before that time are not covered under the regulations, but many businesses will have to start their transition processes before the deadline to ensure total compliance. Additionally, you can expect a much more expansive balance sheet, considering that operational and capital leases must now both be included on your documentation.
