ASC 842 is Coming – How Will it Impact You?
The private company adoption deadline has come and gone. To be GAAP compliant, most 2022 financial statements must present both operating and financing leases on the balance sheet. What does this mean for your company? Let’s use a basic office lease as an example.
A three-year office space lease will be classified as an operating lease. The future payments, discounted by two percent, will have a resulting right of use (ROU) asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet. If the three years of monthly escalating payments are $12-13k, the resulting asset and liability will be over $400k!
Chances are, this is a balance sheet impact that should be on the radar. Getting blindsided by a new liability could affect bank covenants, investor requirements, or other key financial metrics.
Haynie & Company can recommend a software tool that allows companies to manage their leases instead of waiting for us to come and show what the balance sheet impact will be from your lease portfolio. The software also automates monthly journal entries, lease modifications, and footnote disclosure requirements.
At Haynie & Company, we want to help you save time and money on your audit. The switch to ASC 842 this year will heighten the risk of material error and could cause complications when working in spreadsheets. We have worked hard to be proactive in looking for solutions, so your company doesn’t have to waste more time and money preparing for the audit. Join us on October 26th as we discuss the opportunity to automate your lease accounting.
