Governments routinely enter into leases. In April 2013, the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) added an accounting and financial reporting standards project to its agenda to re-examine lease accounting issues. Join BKD for this complimentary webinar examining lease accounting for state and local governments, current guidance for lease transactions and GASB’s lease accounting project and its tentative decisions on these issues.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify current developments in GASB’s lease accounting project
  • Describe how proposed requirements differ from existing lease accounting standards
  • Explain how current developments could affect financial reporting for state and local governments
