About Us

LeaseAccounting.com is the leading online resource for accounting professionals seeking to comply with the new ASC 842 and IFRS 16 standards.


New GAAP and Accounting Change

Experts have called the new lease accounting standards one of the “biggest accounting changes ever.” The transition to ASC 842 and IFRS 16 brought several trillion dollars of operating leases onto corporate balance sheets. Combined with the new Revenue Recognition standard (ASC 606), lease accounting is bringing massive change to the area of financial reporting. In fact, the changes are so impactful that some have coined the phrase “New GAAP.”
