This course provides delegates with a thorough understanding of the key requirements of IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers and IFRS 16 Leases, together with an update of the latest key developments in the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).  

Drawing from practical experience, the content is presented in a manner that brings ‘theory to life’ through illustrative examples and practical application guidance.

1. IFRS 16 Leases

IFRS 16 replaced IAS 17 Leases for financial years starting 1 January 2019. Especially Lessees have been significantly affected by the changes, whilst Lessors will be less impacted.  This course provides delegates with a thorough understanding of the new model, which will enable Lessees to account for their leases in line with the new requirements. 

Importantly, the session includes the recent update to IFRS 16 relating to COVID-19, which provides lessees with certain exemptions relating where lessors have granted lessees rent-relief or reduced rent payments as a result of the pandemic. 

IFRS 16 topics include:

  • New Lease accounting model in detail
  • Covid-update to IFRS 16
  • Lessees are significantly affected by having to bring all leases onto Balance Sheet - as a "Right of Use asset" and Lease liability
  • New accounting concepts explained
  • Significant changes to key lease terms used in lease calculations
    • treatment of variable/contingent payments linked to sale or use of the asset, or to an index or a rate
    • lease term
    • renewal options
    • termination penalties
    • lease commencement
    • New key concepts introduced: such as the assessment of a 'significant economic incentive' for Lessee to exercise renewal option, purchase option, etc.
  • Case studies, examples and calculations
  • Impacts of new lease accounting on Financial Statements, metrics and covenants

2. IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers - replaced IAS 18 Revenue, IAS 11 Construction Contracts and all revenue related interpretations in their entirety for financial years starting on/after 1 January 2018.

IFRS 15 is covered in detail.  Topics include: 

  • Significant changes introduced by IFRS 15.
