Leasing activities, and how they’re tracked, have an impact on a company’s financial health. Is your organization recording these activities correctly?
A clear picture of a company’s financial position relies on understanding the particulars of lease classification and staying current on lease accounting standards.
Through its Lease Accounting portfolio, KPMG Executive Education helps accounting and financial reporting professionals understand and apply FASB ASC 842 effectively, allowing company decisions and strategies to be based on accurate financial information.
