由会计师为会计师构建的租赁会计软件

租赁会计常见问题
 

Why was simpLEASE created?

On February 25, 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) finalized the standards update related to accounting for leases, ASU 2016-02. The primary goal of ASU 2016-02 is to improve transparency surrounding financial reporting and leased assets. 就像这些规则的大多数变化一样, 有许多细节需要注意,否则可能会出现问题. Each company is different. Every lease is unique. It became apparent that there was a need for a resource that could simplify the process of identifying how each lease should be classified under the new guidance. 同样,很明显,这个工具应该建立在会计人员的知识基础上. By integrating the insights of Schneider Downs’ accounting experts with the programming experience of its Technology Advisors team, simpLEASE delivers an easy-to-use software tool to address the challenges presented by the new lease accounting standard.

How does simpLEASE work?

simpLEASE is a web-based application that uses a series of easy-to-navigate wizards to assist in classifying leases and analyze how they should be accounted for under the new standard. 该程序提供直观的提示,引导用户完成整个过程, 无论是审查10个租约还是100个租约. 该程序是建立在SD inSITE, a web-based application developed by Schneider Downs that’s compatible with most any accounting system.

在新的租赁会计准则下,所有的租赁是否都在资产负债表上?

随着新租赁会计准则的实施, 基本上所有的租赁现在都将进入资产负债表. 这包括经营租赁和融资租赁(以前称为资本租赁). 然而,某些租赁将被限定或可能被豁免. 其中一些除外是库存租赁, assets under construction, 无形资产或生物资产. There is also an accounting policy election to exclude those leases that have a term of fewer than 12 months and no purchase options, 或者一个合理确定可以行使的续期.

新的租赁会计准则是否要求我改变对现有租赁的会计处理方式?

Yes, the new lease accounting standards will significantly change how existing leases are accounted for today. 以前的租约没有祖父效应. 新标准实施后, 所有租赁安排都必须在新的指导方针下核算.

在新的指导下,什么是经营租赁?

根据新的租赁会计指导, 从承租人的角度来看, an operating lease will be anyone that does not meet the definition of a finance lease (see definition of finance lease below).

在新的指导下,什么是融资租赁?

根据新的租赁会计指导, 从承租人的角度来看, a finance lease (previously referred to as a capital lease) is one that meets one or more of the criteria below:

  • 租赁在租赁期限届满时,将标的资产的所有权转移给承租人.
  • The lease grants the lessee an option to purchase the underlying asset that the lessee is reasonably certain to exercise.
  • 租赁期限为标的资产剩余经济寿命的主要部分.
  • The present value of the sum of the lease payments and any residual value guaranteed by the lessee equals or exceeds substantially all of the fair value of the underlying asset.
  • The underlying asset is of such a specialized nature that it is expected to have no alternative use to the lessor at the end of the lease term.

我公司什么时候需要实施新的租赁会计指导? 

Public business entities are required to adopt ASU 2016-02 for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, 包括这些财政年度内的临时期间.e. 2019年日历年),非公有制经济实体则在次年(1年).e. calendar year 2020).  However, the amendments are required to be presented retrospectively to all periods presented in a company’s financial statements, so a company presenting two years of financial information will need to implement the new rules under ASU 2016-02 the year prior to the effective date.

我是一家出租办公设备的小企业主(私人控股公司). 我是否需要关注租赁会计的变化?

Yes, ASU 2016-02的范围不为私人控股公司提供会计替代方案.

我一般只租赁设备少于12个月. 新的租赁会计准则对我有什么影响吗?

A lessee is permitted to adopt an accounting policy by asset class to not recognize lease assets and lease liabilities for leases with terms of 12 months or less, 包括任何合理确定将被行使的续期.  Leases with initial terms of less than 12 months and have renewal periods that are reasonably certain to be exercised, 在ASU 2016-02下需要入账吗.

我公司租用土地勘探自然资源.g. oil and natural gas). 我们是否受到新租赁会计准则的影响?

某些租赁被排除在ASU 2016-02的范围之外, 包括那些开始探索或使用矿物的人, oil, 天然气和类似的不可再生资源.  These types of leases will continue to be accounted for under Topic 930 Extractive Activities-Mining and 932 Extractive Activities-Oil and Gas.  Leases of intangible assets, 生物资产和在建资产也被排除在ASU 2016-02的范围之外.

新租赁会计准则对房地产租赁有影响吗?

Yes.  新的租赁会计准则几乎没有涉及到什么. 涉及物业/楼宇的租约, 新标准涵盖了物业改善和房地产.

租赁会计的变化会影响我的底线吗?

We anticipate very little, if any, 会计变更对净利润的影响. However, we do anticipate there could be additional costs associated with preparing for the implementation by organizations that have significant leases. Those costs could include, 但不限于额外的内部人员/资源和租赁会计软件, 以及外部顾问协助执行.

租赁会计的变化会影响我的税收吗?

我们预计不会对净税收产生影响.
