This special edition of IFRS News explains the key features of the new Standard and provides practical insights into its application and impact.
The IASB has published IFRS 16 ‘Leases’, completing its long-running project to overhaul lease accounting.

For many businesses, however, exemptions for short-term leases and leases of low value assets will greatly reduce the impact.
