ASC-IASB Forum on Leases

The Accounting Standards Council (ASC) is partnering the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) to organise a Forum on Leases in Singapore on 2 October 2013.

The IASB has issued a revised Exposure Draft (ED) on Leases in May 2013 proposing a new lease accounting requirement which could significantly affect lessees’ and lessors’ financial statements. A copy of the ED is available at the ASC’s website at

In that regard, the Forum would provide a platform for our constituents to hear direct from the IASB the salient features, rationale and key impact of the ED and exchange views on the ED with the IASB.

Details of the Forum on Leases are as follows:
