Assignment 4: The Impact of Current IFRS Proposals for Lease Accounting on Financial Reporting and Accounting for Income Taxes
The proposed changes to lease accounting under IFRS represent a significant change from past accounting practices. The accounting changes could influence how leases are negotiated and potential lease versus buy decisions. In the organization in which you work or have worked in the past, consider how this change may have affected that organization as you complete this assignment.
