SYDNEY– September 30, 2019 – LeaseAccelerator, the pioneer in the Enterprise Lease Accounting software market, will convene the east coast business community to discuss the next wave of opportunity following the implementation of AASB 16 lease accounting standards.

LeaseAccelerator’s head of lease accounting John Kuett will discuss the international experience of companies who have used IFRS 16 (the international standard upon which AASB 16 is based) as an opportunity to gain competitive advantage.

Mr Kuett has been a financial reporting specialist for more than 20 years, with experience spanning the US and EMEA. Mr Kuett joins local experts from Deloitte to discuss the new standards, along with panellists involved in the implementation of the new standards from leading Australian organisations including Boral, Aurecon, and CBRE.

“AASB 16 was imposed upon the industry and it’s definitely been a painful process for many,” he said. “Now the first milestone has been met, smart companies are figuring out how to turn the work they’ve done into an advantage. I’m looking forward to sharing the experience of our international partners who have successfully achieved this.”

The events, AASB 16: An opportunity to Remediate, Optimise and Innovate: Lessons learned in lease accounting following the first reporting period will run next month. Details are:
