Tackle Your Audit Like a Pro: Tips from LeaseQuery’s Post-Transition Lease Audit Playbook

Course Description

Earlier this year, LeaseQuery partnered with Encoursa to conduct a survey of 240 accountants, analyzing the obstacles faced before, during, and after their first audit post-lease accounting transition. The results proved the first audit under the new lease accounting rules brings both issues and insights to accountants, with half of public companies reporting additional effort was needed.
