IFRS 16 “Leases” became effective from 1 January 2019 changing the accounting treatment of leases by lessees substantially. In October 2019, the European regulator, European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), issued its enforcement priorities 2019 (PDF, 483KB) for IFRS Financial Statements which clearly focus on the disclosures for the newly effective standard (IFRS 16) as well as specific issues related to the application of IFRS 9, IFRS 15 and IAS 12.
