ASC 842: Lessee post-adoption hot topics

Webcast overview:

KPMG professionals discuss lessee accounting and implementation hot topics that are arising for companies after their adoption date.


  • All companies that are lessees with leases in the scope of ASC 842

Key impacts

Even though the adoption date has passed for most public companies, for many of them:

  • System issues and other implementation tasks remain
  • Day 2 accounting issues are arising – e.g. stemming from ASC 842's reassessment, modification and impairment requirements


Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Lessee transition and ongoing accounting policy elections
  • Lessee Day 2 accounting hot topics
  • Systems and process considerations that remain post-adoption
