If you say, you should check your current transactions to which you apply IAS 17 and compare whether the rules of IFRS 16 are changed against those specific transactions. Pay attention to operational leasing, especially as the rules have changed. Then you have to calculate — determine how these transactions are presented under the current rules (IAS 17) — as they would have been presented under IFRS 16 — calculate the differences and account for them on equity, as at the beginning of the reference period. You also need to adjust the comparisons. S. please send me all the pros and cons with IFRS 16 compared to IAS 17. God bless however, as the accounting of certain types of operating leases is changing radically, we must distinguish whether we have a lease under IFRS 16 or another service contract according to another standard.

He raised this issue, and at the end I ask him whether or not the treatment of rental offices is influenced by that IFRS standard.16 He was a little hesitant, but he eventually confirmed that the rental office had to be out of reach because there is no way to buy the office.
