The New Lease Accounting Standard:
A Practical Guide for Associations and Nonprofits

Webinar • Wednesday, February 12, 2020 • 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET | Qualifies for 1.5 CAE


Starting this year, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) requires public companies to start disclosing operating leases on their balance sheet as both assets and liabilities. By January 1, 2021, nonprofits must do the same.

This transparency marks a dramatic change from simply reporting leases as expenses on the income statement and in footnotes to the financials.

Will your organization have the practices and policies in place to comply?

In this 90 minute webinar, RSM’s Doug Boedeker helps ready your nonprofit to have the right lease-accounting procedures in place when the new FASB/IASB changes take effect next January.

Practical ways to comply with dramatic changes.  You’ll  learn how to adapt current accounting practices to meet new requirements for disclosure on leases for office space and equipment. Nonprofit-specific scenarios help you avoid trial and error in handling leases as both assets and liabilities. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now for practical guidance on how the new accounting standard affects your organization, including:

  • How the new accounting standard differs from current practice
  • Why this new standard has been issued
  • Sample journal entries for typical office-lease scenarios encountered by associations and nonprofits
  • A checklist of what to consider as you work toward implementation

Remember, the new standard requires your organization to account for leases as both assets and liabilities. Let this webinar help you make sure you have the right processes in place by January 2021
