IFRS 16 Leases Online Training

Course Description

IFRS 16 Leases has a single lessee accounting model which replaced the finance and operating lease classification in IAS 17. The standard requires most leases to be recognized on the lessee’s balance sheet. It requires analysis of contracts to determine whether it contains a lease or embedded lease, separation of lease and non-lease components and determination of lease term.

In addition, the standard requires adjustments to lease assets and liabilities for lease modifications, and has been amended in 2020 to introduce a practical expedient in relation to rent concessions due to COVID-19.

This half-day virtual course provides an analysis of IFRS 16 to enable participants to apply the requirements of the standard and evaluate its impact on business and the financial statements. There is use of examples and case studies to explain the application of the standard.
