Compliance with FASB, IFRS, and GASB Leasing Standards

FASB recently delayed their effective date for private companies, and one reason for the delay was that many lease accounting software vendors are taking longer than expected to develop their compliance solutions. Don’t get stuck in a contract with a vendor who’s still working out the kinks in their system when it comes time for reporting.

LeaseQuery is already compliant with the new lease accounting standards.

How to Find the Best Lease Accounting Software for Your Business

Between juggling your budget and convincing key stakeholders, finding the right product for your organization is no easy task. The new lease accounting standards are complex, making it crucial for you to choose the system with the functionality necessary for your compliance.

Here are the key factors to evaluate when assessing your software options:

Consider more than just cost

Occasionally, procurement teams and senior leaders will push for the most inexpensive option, but the cheapest solution may not have all the functionalities you need for long-term compliance. Here are a few other factors to consider:

  • How difficult is the setup?
  • Can you customize reporting?
  • Does it offer a custom calendar and support for 13-period accounting?
  • See more on our features page:

Find software built specifically
for lease accounting

With the new standards coming into effect, companies have two primary needs related to their leases:

  • A lease accounting solution that will ensure compliance with the new regulations
  • A centralized repository where anyone in the company can access lease documents
Many of the available lease administration and lease management systems cannot fully accommodate the new accounting standards. When comparing software, identify which solutions were made specifically for lease accounting from the ground up.

What to Look for When Comparing Lease Accounting Solutions

One thing accountants should keep in mind is the automation and functionalities your software will need to support internal controls. The software you choose for your business should automate complex lease calculations and alerts for all important dates.

Beyond automation, here are two more key components to look for regarding internal controls:

Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act

Public companies must comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act, a 2002 regulation that improves the accuracy and reliability of corporate disclosures. Section 404 of the SOX Act requires management and external auditors to report on the adequacy of a company’s internal control over financial reporting. Providers should be aware of Section 404 of the SOX Act and able to show you how their lease accounting system’s built-in functionalities reinforce your internal controls.

Internal control functionalities

Data validation protocols
Data entry validation protocols ensuring if one person enters or modifies a lease, someone else will approve those changes
Audit trail
Full audit trails noting on the lease level who made changes, what they changed, and when
Role-based access
Role-based access controls that ensure people have access to only the data they need
SOC report

SOC reports

System and Organization Controls (SOC) reports – issued by a third-party CPA – address a software company’s ability to provide controls applicable to your internal controls over financial reporting. Each of the three types of SOC reports focuses on different aspects of a company’s controls (e.g., financial and non-financial), and various levels of scrutiny from the third-party issuer. SOC Type 1 and SOC Type 2 are the most relevant reports for lease accounting software.

Your provider should be able to present a letter of verification from the firm that performed the SOC report itself to ensure their software is coded and functioning properly so errors aren’t created in the system.

SOX vs. SOC – What’s the difference?

  • SOX Section 404-compliant functionalities help you prevent errors
  • SOC reports outline whether or not a software program is designed and operating effectively to prevent system errors

Reading Lease Accounting Software Reviews

The best way to assess any technology before investing time and money into it is by hearing from those who have used it. Over two-thirds of B2B buyers say reviews are a “very important” consideration in the buying process.

Lease Accounting Software Reviews
Many of LeaseQuery’s customer reviews are from accountants who are in the weeds of day-to-day lease accounting. While several of our competitors have received good reviews, most of them aren’t actually from accountants, but rather people in real estate, legal, lease administration, and more.

When trying to decide how much weight a solution’s reviews carry, be sure to look for how many of those reviews were made by people who understand lease accounting specifically.

Persuading your stakeholders
with the right reviews

To help internal stakeholders understand the value of using a product that’s been reviewed by your peers, remind them how often they are asked for audited financials when entering new business relationships or renewing contracts. By selecting a solution that has been reviewed by other like-minded accountants, you are better able to judge the seller’s trustworthiness and whether or not you should buy the software.

Software reviews
Feedback

Augment reviews with
feedback from your peers

Go beyond online reviews and reach out to your peers to find out which solutions they’re using. A one-on-one conversation allows you to ask them questions you may not see in a review.

With the lease accounting effective dates approaching, many companies are getting into the software business without taking the time to consider all the functionalities for compliance. Having a keen eye for detail will help you make the right choice.
