Mazars & Roma Seminar Invitation -  HKFRS16: Key changes & implication on other HKFRSs

29 November 2019 | Regal Kowloon Hotel, Versailles Ballroom, 3/F, 71 Mody Road, Tsimshatsui, Hong Kong 

For lessees, while HKFRS 16 has surely brought about tremendous changes to lease accounting, the basic application mechanism is similar to that of the finance-lease accounting under HKAS 17. However, the devil is always in the detail. To name a few:

  • How to determine whether a supply contract is or contains a lease?
  • How to deal with rental deposits?
  • Will the recognition of right-of-use assets and lease liabilities give rise to deferred tax liabilities and assets under HK tax?
  • How to estimate the discount rate?

Join us for the forthcoming seminar that explores the key changes of HKFRS 16 and its interactions with other HKFRSs.

The seminar will cover:

  • Key changes of HKFRS 16
  • Implication of HKFRS 16 on other HKFRSs
  • Valuation elements of discount rate
