Herbein Q+A: Term Leases

March 9, 2022

The new lease accounting standard goes into effect in 2022 for private organizations, and it's essential that businesses start planning now. The standard is intended to account for all lease obligations on financial statements, rather than excluding operating leases as has been the standard. This change ensures that a company's financial situation is reflected as accurately as possible within the statements.
