FAQ concerning IFRS 16 – Lease (part 2)

3 December 2018

FAQ concerning IFRS 16 – Lease (part 1)

The dark side of e-financial reports

8 November 2018
Some time ago we wrote about changes pertaining to preparing financial statements and submitting them to a relevant court register, mainly about the fact that as of March 2018 they can be filed only electronically (e.g. in PDF format); yet, this form, simple as it may seem, has caused a lot of trouble, primarily due to the lack of personal identification numbers (PESEL) of board members and the lack of electronic signatures. Since filing financial statements online has proven to be troublesome, we may only guess that as of 1 October 2018 we are going to face a genuine disaster in this respect. Why is this so? Let me explain.

IFRS 16 – a few words about the new standard. Leaseback (part 10)

19 June 2018
The last time we discussed lease contract modifications. The next thing that should be addressed and is present in the economic reality is the leaseback. It is very often the case that entities first purchase a given fixed asset (a building, specialist equipment or manufacturing machine) but then, given the lack of funds or as a consequence of streamlining the financing of their investments, decide to sell this asset and lease it back later.

IFRS 16 – a few words about the new standard. Lease contract modifications (part 9)

22 May 2018
In this article, resuming the topic of IFRS 16, we will have a look at situations in which a lease contract has been modified. In the opening remarks it is worth recalling that any changes of the interest rate, being the basis for calculating the lessor’s interest, or any changes of the index (e.g. inflation level), being the basis for calculating lease payments, are already included in the variable payments and shall not be discussed here any further. Any such changes result only in the need to make adjustments to the outstanding liabilities and adjust the right-of-use assets accordingly.
