A207 : IFRS 16 / FRS 116: Leases

7.00 CPE Hours (Category 1)
Classroom

Programme Objective

On 13 January 2016, after deliberations of almost seven years, the International Accounting Standards Board issued IFRS 16 to improve the reporting of lease contracts. The new standard FRS 116 Leases has been adopted by the Accounting Standards Council of Singapore and will replace the existing standards on leases for periods beginning 1 January 2019.
 
The objective of this course is to facilitate an understanding of the principles and changes arising from the revised model of lease accounting for lessees and to illustrate the application of the requirements relating to lessee accounting. Although there is no substantial change in the model of accounting for lessors, the context of lessor accounting is now within this new standard FRS 116. This course also provides a review of the accounting for lessors within the context of FRS 116 with illustrative examples.

Programme Outline


The course will explain the principles and application of the requirements through decision flowcharts, clarifications of the basis of conclusions for critical changes and illustrative examples with hands-on exercises. It will also highlight major differences between the new standard and the outgoing standard FRS 17 Leases.
