GASB 87: Accounting for Lease Modifications

Presenters: Rachel Reed and Abdi Ali

Description: In this live event, LeaseQuery’s lease accounting experts will describe what triggers a lease modification and how to account for them under the new governmental lease standard, GASB 87. We will begin with a brief overview of GASB 87 and its changes from legacy lease accounting and then describe the specific accounting treatment for lease modifications. The second half of this presentation will include a comprehensive example of a lease modification within the accounting framework of GASB 87. Our example will begin with identifying the indicators of a lease modification in a realistic example and then walk through the adjusting journal entries required for both lessees and lessors.

  • Summarize lease accounting under GASB 87 and understand the broad changes from legacy lease accounting
  • Identify common triggers of lease modifications
  • Review practical examples of lease modifications and how to account for them correctly
