ASC 842 Software | Lease Accounting Compliance Application

ASC 842 software is a financial tool that provides the functionalities needed to maintain compliance with FASB’s ASC 842 financial reporting standard.

ASC 842 Lease Accounting Software

What is ASC 842?

ASC 842 is the latest FASB lease accounting standard that public companies were required to adopt in 2019 and that private companies must adopt in 2020. ASC replaces the US GAAP lease standard ASC 840, and it closes the loophole that lets companies hide assets off their balance sheet by requiring the tracking and disclosure of all a company's leased assets and replaces the previous US GAAP lease standard, ASC 840.
