Our Challenge

Comply with ASC 842 for Operating Leases

The client was required to comply with ASC 842, a new
standard governing how leases are reflected within
company financial statements. The most significant
impact of the new standards will be to move all
operating leases (real estate, equipment and
embedded) longer than 12 months onto the balance
sheet.

The client had a significant lease portfolio consisting of
both real estate and equipment leases. The client has
locations in two countries with over ten currencies.
As a public company with a fiscal year-end of December
31, the client kicked off their project in mid-December
2018 and wanted to achieve compliance by end of
March 2019.

Our Solution

Completed On-Site at Client's Location in The Middle East

The client selected LeaseAccelerator for their lease accounting
software and Vaco’s Global Lease Accounting team as the
implementation partner.

The Vaco team created a unique project timeline based on the
individual client needs and adapted their work schedules
around the client’s schedule while working in a different time
zone. This unique project included an on-site session at the
client’s location in the Middle East during the course of the
project.

The Vaco team, comprised of a Project Manager, Technical
Accounting Manager and a Data Specialist, provided advisory
services in the completeness of data, accuracy of IBR rates,
technical accounting knowledge regarding the lease data
and the impact of the data to comply with the ASC 842
standard. Vaco configured and designed the software to
achieve an automated system that incorporates the client’s
business requirements.
