Exploring the impact of COVID-19 on lease management

16th February 2021 | 1:00pm - 2:30pm ET
Exploring the impact of COVID-19 on real estate portfolios and lease management

As a result of Covid-19 companies are reimagining the role of the “office” and the future of the workplace under a “next” normal. There is an expectation that we will see a continuation of remote working and re-evaluation of what work gets done where. This is causing executive management to rethink their leasing strategies which in turn impacts lease accounting and the associated disclosure requirements. We see many companies renegotiating lease agreements, securing rent concessions and deferrals, downsizing leased space, sub-leasing excess space or abandoning excess space that cannot be sub-let.

Accounting for these lease revisions can be complicated. CFO’s need to make sure that the correct accounting treatment is being followed and that their disclosure reporting provides the users of their financial statements with an adequate understanding of the impact of renegotiated leases along with other Covid-19 related lease and real estate impacts.

Join us and IBM to discuss with your peers:

  • How you currently manage your leases: spreadsheets, technology, or a combination of the two? How effective is this method?
  • What types of asset leases do you track (i.e real estate, equipment, etc)
  • How Lease management and administration has changed through COVID-19
  • How technology and  AI can help in lease management and administration
