AASB 16 Masterclasses

Most finance teams are on top of the big picture story of AASB 16. However, very few finance teams have come to terms with the practicalities of its application; such as how the new lease accounting model introduces volatility to the financial statements due to continual re-measurement requirements, and how the transition method adopted can significantly affect financial key financial metrics and KPIs for years to come.

This hands-on masterclass will have you ready to adopt AASB 16.

Presented by BDO’s IFRS Advisory experts, it will assist you to understand the approach to follow when your organisation is preparing its transition plan to adopt AASB 16, right up to calculating and preparing the journals for adoption.
