The change in the balance sheet would be an asset account called right-to-use. On the liability side of the balance sheet you would have a corresponding liability account for future lease payments or lease obligations. The proposal would discontinue the benefits of an operating lease and force most lessees to include leases in their balance sheet. (FASB, 2010) Date Accounts: Dr. Cr. 13-May Leased Obligation $9,100,000 Right-of-Use Asset $9,100,000 The effect of this change would benefit would be investors because they would be able to know what lease obligation the company has and the yearly payments associated to outstanding leases. People that have already invested into the company would be affected negatively by the increase in liabilities, which in the example problem the company would have to front load the liabilities of lease according to the proposed rule changes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
