Accounting for Lease Modifications and Impairments under ASC 842

by George Azih from LeaseQuery


Course Description

In the prior webinar in this series, lease accounting expert George Azih walked through a detailed lease accounting example (you might recall the five-story mixed-use office building with the rooftop deck!).  As George commences part four of LeaseQuery's six-part webinar series, he will move into a discussion of how to account for lease modifications and impairments under the new lease accounting standards.  As always, George brings a clear-cut style to help you demystify lease accounting.
