IFRS 16 Lease Accounting Tool

For a smoother transition for your business

Implementing the new IFRS 16 lease accounting standard requires fundamentally changing the calculation methods applied within your business. The financial impact of the standard can be complex to quantify and involves detailed calculations and financial modelling, particularly for companies with large lease portfolios.

In order to assist our clients with the transition, one of the solutions that we’ve developed at PwC is a tailored and transparent tool that can be used to evaluate the transition day (‘Day 1’) impact as well as calculate ongoing monthly financial journals. Once customised and tested, it can be implemented in a matter of days, and doesn’t require complex IT infrastructure and therefore the onerous procurement which often accompanies such initiatives.

Why is an IFRS 16 calculation tool required?

40+ data points are required for each lease to be managed and to calculate the IFRS 16 results.

Complex calculations are necessary for leases with fluctuating periodic rent, ongoing changes in likelihood to exercise extensions or termination options, different lease or company reporting currencies...etc.

Managing lease data and their calculations, and tracking post-transition lease modifications becomes complex when dealing with more than 25 leases.

Basic spreadsheet models created for individual leases present a greater risk of input error, and require significantly more manual time and effort to aggregate balances, report consistently, and perform audits or verifications.

What is unique about our solution?
