On 1st January 2019, the new IFRS 16 accounting standard will come into force. The new rule is expected to have a major impact on companies and how they present their financial results. Not only will it affect lease administration and accounting, it will also influence decisions companies make about whether to lease or purchase, when and for how long to enter into lease agreements, and a range of other issues.

What does this mean and how will these rules affect your business?

Major changes for any business that leases items – from vehicles, machinery, to property and beyond. The new IFRS 16 accounting standard requires companies to acknowledge leases as assets and liabilities on their balance sheets.

Join our webinar on 25th October, to find out how IBM Planning Analytics and IBM Planning Analytics Solution Accelerator for IFRS16 can help you speed up and simplify your lease reporting, to meet the requirements of IFRS 16.
