As we move into 2021, companies are finalizing their plans, budgets and operational improvement processes for the coming year. One of the key challenges that many organizations face is how best to optimize and integrate their ASC 842 / IFRS 16 compliance within their overall business systems.
Lease Accounting Optimization with Contract and Lease Management (CLM): How to move beyond the roadblocks created by sub-optimal compliance methods.
As public companies have worked over the past two years to comply with new ASC 842 and IFRS 16 leasing standards, they have taken a variety of paths to achieve the initial compliance requirements.
