IFRS 16, Leases - IASB

Date recorded:

At their joint meeting on March 18-19, 2014, the FASB decided on a dual approach for lessee accounting, with lease classification being determined in accordance with the principle in existing lease requirements. Under this approach, a lessee would account for most existing capital/finance leases as Type A leases (that is, recognizing amortization of the right-of-use (ROU) asset separately from interest on the lease liability), and accounting for most existing operating leases as Type B leases (that is, recognizing a single total lease expense). The IASB decided on a single approach for lessee accounting. Under that approach, a lessee would account for all leases as Type A leases (that is, recognizing amortization of the ROU asset separately from interest on the lease liability).
