Complying with the new GASB 87 lease accounting standard will require a significant shift in how organizations account for leases for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019. The changes required by these new rules will impact nearly all governmental entities and related GASB reporting organizations who operate as lessees, lessors, or both.

Join lease accounting experts from RSM and LeaseAccelerator as they discuss how to best prepare for adopting and reporting under GASB 87.  During this webinar, experts will recap lessons learned from real-world implementations and discuss how companies can leverage technology to automate and overcome the complexities of transitioning and sustaining compliance.
