KPMG Lease Accounting

Technology Solutions

Efficiently account and report leases with our innovative lease accounting tech solutions

KPMG’s lease accounting technology solutions help you capture and account for leases under AASB 16.

With the introduction of AASB 16, entities are required to bring most operating leases onto the balance sheet. Leases previously recognised as off-balance sheet will now be accounted for as right-of-use (RoU) assets and lease liabilities, providing stakeholders with more transparency regarding an entity’s future leasing obligations. Some on-going reassessments may be required.

Given the increased reporting requirements, entities need a way to efficiently capture the necessary lease information and produce the relevant schedules and accounting entries for reporting under AASB 16.

KPMG has developed two accounting technology solutions that will help: the KPMG Lease Reporting Model and the KPMG IFRS 16 Accounting Tool. KPMG’s lease accounting technology solutions have been designed to assist in meeting your AASB 16 requirements and cater to your business needs.

The Lease Reporting Model simplifies lease reporting through:

  • Intuitive data entry: Lease information can be bulk imported or entered through a simple and controlled user form.
  • Easy review: Generate lease schedules at the click of a button for the RoU asset, lease liability, payments, interest and depreciation.

Capture and account for leases under AASB 16 with this effective and efficient tool.

Entities are now required to bring most operating leases onto the balance sheet. Greater transparency about an entity’s lease commitments and changes to key financial metrics such as gearing ratios, asset turnover and EBITDA will therefore occur. Leases for assets such as property and equipment previously recognised off-balance sheet will now be accounted for as a right-of-use (ROU) asset and lease liability, and on-going reassessments may be required.

KIAT is an easy-to-use, cost effective solution that:

  • Generates both AASB 16 and AASB 117 accounting entries, with AASB 117 entries useful when assessing impact against pre-AASB 16:
    • Budgets
    • KPIs
    • Covenants
  • Provides granular level journal entries (single lease, entity, asset type, other) that capture reassessments
  • Produces annual and monthly projections of relevant items affecting income statement, balance sheet and cash flow – for up to 120 years
  • Supports foreign currency translations
  • Stress tested to support up to 6,000 leases
