Easing your transition using the power of digital

IFRS 16 requires all material operating leases to be recorded on balance sheet from 1 January 2019. For some companies with large, complex or geographically diverse lease portfolios, this will present a significant change. The impact extends far wider than the accounting function, so stakeholders from other areas of the business including: IT, Treasury, Tax, Reward and Investor Relations need to be engaged early.
