ASC 842 Frequently Asked Questions

What is ASC 842?

ASC 842 is a lease accounting standard that was released by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) that replaces ASC 840. The standard was put in place to increase disclosure and visibility into leasing obligations for both private and public sectors. Previously, most leases were left off balance sheets, whereas now companies need to report right-of-use (ROU) assets and liabilities on almost all balance sheets.

When was the ASC 842 effective date?

The ASC 842 effective date differs for public and private companies. Public companies were expected to comply for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. For private companies, the new standard took effect for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021.

How does my organization become ASC 842 compliant?

Becoming ASC 842 compliant can be difficult if you don’t have all of your leases readily available. After you have confirmed you have all of your contracts and leases together, making sure that they are placed within your balance sheet correctly is the next step.

We can help skip all of that frustration with our ASC 842 lease accounting software. We can keep all of your ASC 842 leases in one place that will keep you automatically ASC 842 compliant around the clock.

What is ASC 842 implementation for private companies?

There are no main differences between the impact of ASC 842 on public companies versus private. The only difference is the adoption date, which for private companies is fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021.
