IFRS16 Challenges

1. New Complex processes

IFRS16 and ASC 842 were heavily underestimated. Big companies had to introduce totally new or significantly adjusted lease administration processes, combined with new accounting procedures. It’s no longer enough to rely on a lessor’s invoice, but there’s a need to have someone who interprets the underlying lease.

2. Time restriction

As in many financial applications, problems will show up in the most unpredictable times, namely on the last days of the month or on quarterly or fiscal year closings. Users might work to the best of their knowledge, but there will be new challenges surfacing when producing the disclosure reports.

3. Mistakes have a high leverage

Any mistake made in the evaluation of a lease contract will have a direct and incorrect effect on a company’s balance sheet. If external tools are used to calculate according to IFRS16 and ASC 842, any wrong calculations will flow into connected or disconnected ERP-systems, potentially resulting in false asset values.

4. Required skills

If companies think that application management of a Leasing solution is an IT- or a technical problem, in the long term, they will learn the hard way that they were wrong. A leasing solution requires technical, functional and accounting knowledge to support the definition of requirements, installation and further along the treatment of the lease contracts.
