Road to Compliance Podcast: The Definition of a Lease

Inventorying your entire lease portfolio is an important part of compliance to the new FASB and IFRS lease accounting standards. But first, you need to be able to identify your entire lease portfolio – including your real estate, equipment and embedded leases. The exercise is potentially more challenging than you might suspect.

Bart Waldeck, Tango’s CMO and SVP of Product Strategy, is joined by Kristin McLaughlin, Senior Director, Technical Accounting Consulting (TAC) at RSM US LLP, and Rick Zelinsky, Vice President of Product Strategy at Tango. In the podcast, they discuss what constitutes a lease, how to identify embedded leases, and how the treatment of leases is changing under the ASC 842.
