On April 13, 2016, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) released a webcast on the definition of a lease as part of its webcast series on IFRS 16 implementation.

This webcast discusses the IFRS 16 requirements and application guidance relating to the definition of a lease, practical differences between IFRS 16 and the previous definition of a lease  in IAS 17 and IFRIC 4, and how entities should account for contracts with both lease and service components.

The new webcast and all previous webcasts of the series are available on the IFRS 16 implementation page on the IASB’s website.
