In this session, LeaseQuery’s lease accounting experts will walk through a comprehensive example of the new governmental lease standard in action. A broad understanding of the new guidance is helpful, and knowledge of key terms is important. Successful implementation of the standard comes down to a proper application of the concepts. This end-to-end example will begin with lease commencement and walk through subsequent journal entries for both lessees and lessors.
