IASB issues new leasing standard
13 Jan 2016
The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has published a new standard, IFRS 16 'Leases'. The new standard brings most leases on-balance sheet for lessees under a single model, eliminating the distinction between operating and finance leases. Lessor accounting however remains largely unchanged and the distinction between operating and finance leases is retained. IFRS 16 supersedes IAS 17 'Leases' and related interpretations and is effective for periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019, with earlier adoption permitted if IFRS 15 'Revenue from Contracts with Customers' has also been applied (subject to EU endorsement).

IASB issues work plan update
26 Sep 2015
Following its September meeting, the IASB has updated its work plan. Due to the IASB's new presentation format, which now speaks of "within three months", "within six months" and "after six months", changes are difficult to trace and there is a potential slippage of two months (since the last update in July) in every project where the IASB has not made an active change. However, one of the few changes made confirms that the IASB expects that the new leases standard will be finalised before the end of the year.
