IFRS 16 is an International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) for leases developed by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) in collaboration with the Financial Accounting Standard Board (FASB) in the United States to provide guidance on accounting for leases.
This standard, which will replace the previous leasing standard (IAS17), was issued in January 2016 and will be effective from 1 January 2019. All companies reporting under IFRS will have to adhere to it by or before 2019. However, those that choose to adopt IFRS 16 early must at the same time adopt the provisions in the new IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers standard.
This professional development course provides an overview of the new IFRS 16 standard and the key changes to how leases are accounted for by leasees. It also considers the issues faced by businesses when setting out to implement this new standard.

Michael Donohoe, MBA
I chose to study online because of the flexibility. The ability to work out of hours and over weekends meant that the impact at work and home was kept to a bare minimum. I would not have been able to study any other way.
I feel that my personal approach in business is much more 'holistic' as a result of my studies at the University of Derby Online Learning. I feel much more confident as a person; it’s a great feeling.
