Begin today to evaluate the technical accounting challenges and resources needed for implementation. * * The new standard brings leases onto the balance sheet to enable users to assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows. * Not all leases under ASC 842 will be called a lease. Reviewing leases can be time-consuming and require significant accounting knowledge and judgment. * The entity should report right-of-use assets and obligations based on legal enforceability of the contract term.
