Subject: new lease requirements and Transition
Introduction
According to the new standard a lease is defined as either
1. contract, or part of a contract, that conveys the right to control the use of identified property, plant, or equipment (an identified asset) for a period of time in exchange for consideration.” For a contract to be, or contain, a lease, it must (1) depend on the use of an identified asset (which can be implicitly or explicitly identifiable and takes into account the substantive substitution rights of a lessor)
2. convey the right to control the use of the asset over the lease term (this depends on a customer’s right to obtain substantially all the economic benefits from use of the identified asset while having the right to direct its use).
The standard Transition
The modified transition method for accounting for leases should be used by both the Lessees and lessors. The transition takes effect in the new accounting model for the earliest year in the accounting period of the financial statements. In the current model ASC 840 for lease classification and ASC 842 for the new model of classification of leases the two are related. In addition, the new model reduces the burden of the initial classification.
As of February 25, 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has developed a new issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). The new standard update requires that the firm recognize and report the lease asset and liabilities in the balance sheet but with some exceptions. The non-public companies have a year to adopt to the new standard whole the public entities are supposed to adopt the new standard as of the fiscal year that begins after December 15, 2018. It also applies to the interim reporting that are within those periods. The reporting of the financial statements that starts on January 1, 2019 the public firms that have year ending of December 31 will have to adopt the new policies. The non-public companies and firms have a grace of one year after that although they have may adopt it earlier than required. Using the modified retrospective approach firm will have to recognize the same at beginning of the earliest period for both the lessorsand lessees. Exception altogether apply for the firms that had leases that existed prior to the standard but have the option of modifying the agreement on the lease or at the same time can opt to terminate the leases so as to accommodate the new regulations on the reporting of the leases. The options also include the purchase of the new assets. If an entity applies to use the practical expedients will, account for leases using the previous GAAP unless it is modified but the agreements must have commenced before the effective date but must note that the leases must recognize a right-to use (ROU) asset and a lease liability and are based on the present value of the remaining lease payment of the operating lease reporting dates. The same can be tracked under the previous GAAP and had earlier been disclosed.
