Course Description

At the end of 2020, LeaseQuery and Encoursa conducted a survey of 400 accounting and financial executives on the lease impacts from COVID-19. We found that 31% are reducing their overall real estate footprint now, and another 22% expect their lease portfolio will be smaller next year. Cost optimization, flexibility, and liquidity are now the key goals driving companies’ plans to right-size and renegotiate their real estate and leasing footprint in 2021. Join the LeaseQuery team as they explore the data and details from the recent report The COVID-19 Lease Impact Report: How Companies are Navigating Lease Accounting’s New Normal
