IFRS Foundation Conference—implementing IFRS 16 Leases requirements

Tuesday 9 May 2017, The Bloomsbury Hotel, London, UK

This one-day conference will bring together representatives of the International Accounting Standards Board (the Board) with those who need to understand IFRS 16 Leases requirements, the practical implementation issues involved and the associated challenges. 

It provides a unique opportunity to hear directly from the Board on the content of the Leases Standard and the available options for transitioning. The conference will also provide insights from accounting professionals, industry experts and preparers that are already working on IFRS 16 implementation.

This conference will be useful for those who are at an early stage of the implementation process and did not attend an IFRS Foundation Leases Conference in 2016.
