IFRS 16 - Leases 2020

Gain full and practical understanding on the treatment of leases by attending this webinar which is part of two series of webinars which we are currently running.


By the end of this event the participant should:

  • Understand how to correctly recognise leases;
  • Understand both recognition exemptions;
  • Understand how to accurately measure leases;
  • Know how to correctly present leases in the AFS; and
  • Know how to correctly disclose leases in the AFS.


The IASB changed the accounting treatment of leases to be applied by the lessee. The distinction between an ‘operating’ lease and a ‘finance’ lease (from the point of view of the lessee), no longer exists (for most leases). It is important that lessees account for leases correctly in terms of the new IFRS 16 Leases.

Gain full and practical understanding on the treatment of leases by attending this webinar which is part of two series of webinars which we are currently running. One series focuses on IFRS and the other one focuses on IFRS for SMEs. Both series will be presented by well-known IFRS and IFRS for SMEs expert Anton van Wyk M.Com, CA(SA).

This webinar is part of a series on IFRS. The series will cover selected IFRS topics that every accounting professional should fully understand in their day to day work. If you are interested in booking for the entire series, click here.
