LeaseAccelerator announced it will host its 2017 Lease Accounting Summit in New York City on November 15th. Immediately following the Current Financial Reporting Issues (CFRI) conference, held by the Financial Executive Insitute (FEI), summit participants will gather in Times Square to discuss case studies, challenges, best practices, and lessons learned from early lease accounting project implementations.

Presentation topics at the summit will center around the key challenges Fortune 1000 companies face when transitioning to the new lease accounting standards:

  • Policies and controls to support financial and SOX audits
  • Business process transformation of enterprise lease management
  • Collection, abstraction, and reconciliation of lease accounting data
  • Practical expedients and policy elections for transition accounting
  • Cross-functional collaboration between accounting, procurement, treasury, and IT

Presenters and panelists will include project leaders in the corporate controllership and treasury from Tyson Foods, Cummins, LyondellBasell, and Omnicom; management consultants from PwC, EY, RGP, and Riveron Consulting; and members of LeaseAccelerator’s Lease Accounting Technical Task Force.

“The majority of Fortune 1000 companies are gearing up for a 2018 implementation of the new lease accounting standards. With the deadline rapidly approaching, controllers and project teams do not have time to climb the traditional learning curve,” said Michael Keeler, CEO of LeaseAccelerator. “One of the biggest benefits for attendees will be the opportunity to gain insights from early adopters on lessons learned, best practices, and pitfalls to avoid. It’s an opportunity to learn from peers how to de-risk your projects and ease your transition.”
