17:05 Why IFRS 16 matters: History, conceptual logic, and consequences

Several decades in the making, IFRS 16 is among the most controversial accounting standards in history. Starting in 2019, it forces lessee firms to bring previously “hidden” assets and debt onto their balance sheets. This keynote first describes the history and conceptual logic of the new lessee accounting under IFRS 16. It then discusses its effects on the preparers and users of financial statements.
Prof. Dr. Thorsten Sellhorn (Director of the Institute for Accounting, Auditing and Analysis at the School of Management of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich)
