As finance teams have transitioned to the latest lease accounting standards, now is an ideal time to investigate Day 2 accounting challenges and optimize end-to-end portfolio management processes.

Implementing the latest lease accounting standards involves changes in processes such as identifying right of use assets, determining discount rates, and calculating lease liabilities, among others. These shifts in workflow took considerable effort and may have significantly impacted the balance sheet for many organizations. Beyond these initial Day 1 challenges, recent events, including the COVID-19 pandemic, have also affected lease modifications. Many organizations are still practising manual workarounds and are considering leveraging technology to improve their lease accounting processes.

End-to-end process challenges
