The new leases standard

On 13 January 2016, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) issued the new leases standard IFRS 16. The main goal of the new standard is to bring all leases on balance sheet by requiring lessees to recognize the related rights and obligations. Lessees will no longer be required to distinguish finance and operating leases as under the current requirements of IAS 17.
