About the course

The new US GAAP lease accounting standards fundamentally changes the rules that govern accounting and reporting for almost all leases, including property, plant and equipment leases.

This two-day seminar will cover major areas of change from the existing leasing standard, and explain the new standard, its logic, its implications, and the problem areas that concern the constituents. Participants will gain an understanding of the complexities of the new standard as well as how to apply it effectively in their own organizations.


In conjunction with your registration, participants will automatically be enrolled into Leases Identification, Components, and Key Concepts (Topic 842). The completion of this complimentary, CPE-eligible self-study will allow for all participants to attend the course with equivalent advance knowledge.

In addition, registrants of New Lease Accounting will receive a 50% discount on the remaining courses within the Leases (Topic 842) web-based training series. Instructions for redeeming this offer will be provided in the registration confirmation email that you will receive upon registering for the course.
