Five signs your lease accounting solution isn’t ‘the one’

The deadline for US private companies, which constitute the largest segment of businesses in the U.S., has come and gone. Similar to public companies before them, many private organizations likely utilized lease administration system functionality or excel-based processes to meet the deadline.

For some, this initial approach may suffice. However, many companies are realizing that their approach to ASC 842 compliance is not sustainable in the long run. We summarize some of the red flags that indicate you may need to reevaluate your lease accounting compliance solution.
