Pun Group and LeaseQuery: A Detailed Transition Example of GASB 87

Course Description

Join The Pun Group and LeaseQuery as we take an in-depth look at the lease accounting changes required under GASB 87.

We will begin by reviewing the standard and its essential concepts, and then explore a comprehensive example of applying the new lease accounting standard for both lessees and lessors. Our lease accounting experts will:

  • Discuss the importance of identifying the correct lease commencement date and other key dates
  • Calculate the lease asset and lease liability for a lease in progress at the time of transition
  • Explain the available discount rate options and establish which discount rates are appropriate to apply
  • Finally, we will end the presentation with an example of the initial and subsequent journal entries for both lessees and lessors.
