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.
