The new FRS 116 Leases differs substantially from the previous standard. Many Accounting Professionals are finding that the new requirements have imposed new reporting burdens and have significant impact on an organisation’s financial position, financial results, leverage and capital ratios, cash flow and EBITA.

This workshop will also address some of the common queries on the impact of rent concessions provided by landlords to tenants as a result of the COVID-19 situation. Such rent concessions are common for leases of retail property and may be required by governments.

The workshop will touch on the Covid-19-Related Rent Concessions beyond 30 June 2021.
