GASB Statements 87 & 96: An Intro & Comparison

February 7 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Lease Query CPE

Participants of the free live webinar will be eligible for 1 CPE credit.


Join LeaseQuery as we take a look at the accounting changes required under GASB 87 and GASB 96.

In this session, our accounting expert will provide an overview of both GASB 87 and GASB 96. We will begin by explaining the definitions of a lease and a subscription presented in the standards and then we will examine the scoping considerations. Then we will walk through a simple subscription agreement example and how to calculate the subscription liability and asset.

Our presenters will discuss the similarities and differences of the accounting treatments presented in each standard. Finally, we will review how these new standards apply to your government organization and factors to look for when beginning your transition.
