The IASB changed the accounting treatment of leases to be applied by the lessee. The distinction between an ‘operating’ lease and a ‘finance’ lease (from the point of view of the lessee), no longer exists (for most leases). It is important that lessees account for leases correctly in terms of the new IFRS 16 Leases.
