IFRS 16 - what are the implications if any?


Recommended Posts

I have not read IFRS 16 but if it causes companies to recognize assets and liabilities that are essentially there anyway I would look thru it. 


From a real life experience perspective a lessee is on the hook for paying the remaining lease payments - so that is a real liability in case the lessee wants out and is a potential real liability if one doesn't need the real estate anymore.  Probably end up shortening lease terms for some public companies which may be a good thing.  I sometimes pass on companies if their lease liability is very high relative to the value of the company, as that can be a lot of risk that hits at the worst time.
