AASB 16 Leases features a single lease accounting model for lessees – with a host of different transition options and practical expedients. An entity may need to model the impact of the various transition options to determine the option that best suits its objectives as it will have an impact on financial statements in its year of adoption and an ongoing impact on future financial statements. Consideration would also need to be given to the costs of implementation of the various options.

This webinar, hosted by KPMG Partner Patricia Stebbens, delivers an analysis of the transition options and expedients to help you understand the impact and the key considerations.
