Ensure compliance across your real estate and equipment leases

As a result of the Enron fallout, accounting and financial reporting regulators, such as the SEC are making it harder to hide debts and assets from shareholders. The new accounting standards, Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) ASC 842 and International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) IFRS 16, require non-governmental companies and organizations to include both lessee and lessor lease obligations of all real estate and equipment assets on their balance sheets subject to certain exemptions.

These new standards were introduced to improve transparency for the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows from or due to leases. For US public and all international companies, the deadline to comply with FASB and IASB lease accounting standards began in fiscal year 2019. US private companies have until fiscal year 2020 to report using the new FASB standard.

"The business calls for a comprehensive real estate management solution that manages our real estate portfolio and equipment leases, and one that eases our compliance responsibility associated with the new lease accounting guidance. We’ve found this with Accruent’s (Lucernex) software"
