As calendar year public companies get ready for their first year end lease reporting cycle, listen as Heather HornSuzanne Stephani and Marc Jerusalem answer some common questions. Topics include:

  • 1:35 - Disclosures. The new guidance requires more disclosure, enabling financial statement users to better understand the cash flows arising from leases. So did that happen? Suzanne kicks off with what we are hearing from users and regulators.

  • 10:48 - Balance sheet. A common question relates to the current vs noncurrent presentation of the lease liability. Marc fills us in on what companies should be thinking about.

  • 13:23 - Income statement. You were able to sublease your space, but how do you present sublease income? We address common questions.

  • 16:08 - Statement of cash flows. Are you clear how lease payments and changes in the lease liabilities and right of use assets should be presented in the statement of cash flows?

  • 19:07 - Interim disclosures. Last year your first quarter likely had the full annual disclosures for leases. How much can you take out now that it’s just the interim requirements? Marc explains.
