Valuation for Financial Reporting Series Overview
Accounting standards setters and policymakers around the globe are in the midst of broad-reaching convergence projects which may result in expanded use of “fair value” accounting. Such a change would likely have a dramatic impact on financial reporting of real estate assets and investments. Here, the use of appraisal professionals can be used to supplement and enhance investor confidence with financial statements. In this 5-webinar series, participants will learn about the convergences that are underway, how these standards have already been applied in Europe and other parts of the world, and how auditors and investors will likely view the work of third party subject matter experts like appraisers. Further, the series will provide helpful tips on how small-to-medium size appraisal firms can position themselves to compete for this new line of business.
Webinar #1: Real Estate Industry Perspectives on Lease Accounting
FASB and IASB are engaged in a “Lease Accounting” project whereby lessors and lessees would be required to report leases (including real estate) on financial statements. Concerns have been expressed by lessors and lessees of commercial real estate regarding the cost of compliance and the necessity of the proposal. Real estate associations have been outspoken about the potential effect on commercial real estate lease-buy decisions, which could force the development of shorter term leases and have an effect on the value of real estate. Others have stated a preference for fair value arrangements found under International Financial Reporting Standards and have called on FASB to adopt a comparable standard to
IAS 40, Investment Property,
which provides a fair value option. This webinar will deliver real estate industry perspectives on the proposed lease accounting rule and alternatives that may garner support. Participants will understand: - How the proposed Lease Accounting rule is structured - Pension fund, institutional investor and real estate investment trust views on lease accounting - Investor views on fair value for real estate - Value added services that can be provided by appraisers for lessors and lessees complying with the lease accounting and fair value for investment property
