Ensure compliance using software specially designed to manage your real estate and equipment leases
Our CRE lease accounting software has always operated to ensure compliance with core accounting and financial reporting regulations, including IAS 17 and the new IASB IFRS 16 and FASB ASC 842 standards. This means that by using our software, businesses can automate calculations that are otherwise time-consuming, prone to error and difficult to audit in a spreadsheet or separate software approach. Designed as an open information system, the calculated values can be interfaced through to corporate accounting systems to avoid manual journal creation. In addition, fields have been added that capture discount rates, assumed end dates of the lease (taking into account break clauses and extensions, plus comments to satisfy auditors as to why this date has been chosen), incentives, costs and dilapidations.
