  • Lease Maintenance is ongoing and complex. Watch our webinar highlighting the top 10 challenges in lease accounting.
  • It isn’t easy to keep up to date with the lease standard, IFRS 16 Leases, and its requirements 
  • Accounting for the effects of making reasonable provisions and sub-leases on IFRS 16
