GASB 87 countdown: Are you ready for lease reporting changes?

Event Info

Register for This Event

Back in 2017, the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) issued guidance on leases for state and local governmental entities. GASB Statement No. 87 alters the accounting rules and financial reporting requirements for leases. And it’s effective for reporting periods beginning in years after Dec. 15, 2019.

Maybe this seemed too far into the future to be concerned about. Or perhaps you’ve been sifting through the guidance but haven’t quite gotten your arms around what it means to your organization and what you need to do by when.

Time goes by quickly. Join Baker Tilly for this complimentary webinar on GASB 87. Our public sector specialists will walk you through an overview of GASB 87, what it means for your governmental entity and what preparations to take now to be ready for implementation.
