This workshop addresses the more complex aspects of lease accounting as required by SFRS(I) 16/FRS 116 Leases, including addressing lease components and non-lease components in leases, sublease and sale and lease transactions.

Programme Outline

Lease components

Lease agreements frequently bundle multiple components, for example, in real estate leases in which the landlord provides building maintenance.

The lease component is the unit of account for lease accounting. Lessors and lessees need to identify, and generally separate, lease and non-lease components to apply FRS 116. To do this, they need to allocate the consideration in the contract between the components that they account for separately.

  • Identifying lease components
  • Combining contracts
  • Separate lease components
  • Lessors – Additional considerations for land and buildings
  • Portfolio approach
  • Identifying non-lease components
  • Practical expedient for lessees – Combining lease and non-lease components
  • Allocate consideration to the lease and non-lease components


  • Intermediate lessor accounting
  • Sub-lessee accounting

Sale and lease back

  • Transfer of an asset is sale
    • Sell at fair value
    • Sell above fair value
    • Sell below fair value
  • Transfer of an asset is not a sale

Practical Examples and Illustrations will be used throughout the workshop to demonstrate the real-life application of these concepts.

This workshop qualifies for 7.0 CPE hours in Financial Reporting Standards and Pronouncements (Category 1) .
