IFRS 16- Leases Webinar – Recording
Date: 3rd November 2022
Time: 04.00pm-06.00pm
Venue: Online


IFRS 16 was issued by IASB in 2016 and is the international accounting standard that focuses on leases. The objective of this standard is to report on financial information that faithfully represents lease transactions and provides a basis for users of financial statements to assess the timing, amount, and uncertainty of cashflows arising from leases. IFRS 16 provides a single lessee accounting model requiring lessees to recognize assets and liabilities for all leases unless the lease term is 12 months or less or the underlying asset has a low value. After issuance of the standard in 2016 it was set to apply to annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019.

Leasing is an important and widely used financing solution. It enables business entities to access and use property and equipment without incurring large cash outflows at the start. It also provides flexibility and enables lessees to address the issue of obsolescence and residual value risk and in most cases, leasing is the only way to obtain the use of a physical asset that is not available for purchase. This makes the understanding of this standard Integral for key decision making and ensuring business entities derive the highest competitive advantage out of existing lease engagements.

The following key topics will form basis of discussion during this important webinar

  • Components of IFRS 16
