October 22, 2019

[Register here]

Time: 2:00 p.m. - 3:40 p.m. (2 CPE hours)

Governments use leases for a variety of routine transactions. Historically, these have been divided into two categories: operating leases and capital leases. Learn about the GASB's new single model for leases, which is effective beginning 12/15/2020. Topics discussed will include determining whether a transaction is a lease or a financed purchase, how to value lease assets and liabilities, and enhanced note disclosures. This standard could require a fair bit of advance preparation by more than the just the Finance Department. Learn the practical steps your government can start taking now to prepare.
