The good news: The lease accounting implementation deadline was delayed for private companies, so you've got a little more time to get it right! The bad news? It's still just as complicated and time-consuming as before, which means you really can't wait any longer to prepare for these changes. The new lease accounting standard (Topic 842) will have a major impact on your balance sheet -- and potentially on your business, too. Attend this course to gain insights about the new standard and make it a smooth transition.
