In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-02 – Leases (Topic 842) which provided a new model for lease accounting aimed to improve transparency and comparability across entities. Although the ASU was issued in 2016, the FASB provided a long implementation period.
