During this live event, LeaseQuery will highlight the differences in interest rates available for leases for both lessees and lessors under the main accounting jurisdictions. Our lease accounting experts will outline the correct application of the implicit rate within a lease under the three main new lease accounting standards—ASC 842, IFRS 16, and GASB 87—and we will discuss their similarities and differences. Finally, our accountants will walk through a detailed example of how to correctly calculate the implicit rate within a lease.
