Programme Synopsis
The current lease accounting requirements in IAS 17 Leases, have been criticised for failing to meet the needs of users of the financial statements, particularly because IAS 17 does not require lessees to recognise assets and liabilities arising from operating leases. IFRS 16, which is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019, addresses those criticisms by requiring lessees to recognise most leases on their balance sheets and providing enhanced disclosures.
How does the lessee accounting model under FRS 116 work and how will the application of the single lessee accounting model under FRS 116 affect lessees in accounting and tax reporting? Are lessors spared from the changes to tax treatments arising from this new accounting standard? 
Join Accredited Tax Advisor (Income Tax) Mr Chai Wai Fook, Tax Services Partner and Mr Ronald Wong, Financial Accounting Advisory Services Partner from Ernst and Young as they dissect the FRS 116 accounting and tax treatments and explore the various tax reporting implications, especially from a lessee’s perspective.
