For many privately held construction companies, the effective date of ASC Topic 842, Leases (the Standard) is January 1, 2022. Some may be wondering about the impact on their financial statements and operations. Join DHG's construction practice as we discuss the unique ways contractors will be impacted by the Standard and explore considerations for adoption of the Standard.

Topics Covered:

Considerations and potential impacts on the financial and operational performance of construction companies such as:

  • How leases make their way on to the balance sheet
  • Potential effects on debt-to-equity ratio and bonding
  • Lease management solution - do I need a software?
  • Related party leases
  • Transition considerations - comparative and non-comparative methods, practical expedients
  • Taking the first step - practical steps to get ready for the standard

We’ll examine the various aspects of the lease standard implementation to consider including implementation planning, assessing impact, and developing best practices.
