LeaseAccelerator Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators
LeaseAccelerator is a Software-as-a-Service provider in the fast-growing Enterprise Lease Accounting software sector.
Companies lease much of the real estate (offices, warehouses, factories) and equipment (computers, vehicles, forklifts, furniture). The average Fortune 500 company leases between 1000 and 10,000 leases representing between $100M and $1B of obligations.Despite the relatively large size and dollar value of these leasing portfolios, most companies use spreadsheets to track these assets.
Unfortunately, spreadsheets usually are not a scalable or reliable method for tracking thousands of assets in hundreds of locations. And many companies struggle to realize the savings they expected from their leasing programs. They cannot return equipment on-time and they pay lots of extra fees around the end of term. LeaseAccelerator is a software application designed specifically for Enterprise Lease Accounting. LeaseAccelerator helps Fortune 500 companies in three areas:
1) Lease Sourcing - Save money on financing terms by more efficiently sourcing new equipment leases 2) Lease Performance - Reduce evergreen fees by proactively managing your leases through end-of-term 3) Lease Accounting - Comply with new IFRS and FASB accounting rules governing leases New Lease Accounting Rules The Financial Accounting Standards Board (US GAAP) and International Accounting Standards Board (IFRS) have announced new lease accounting rules which will require companies to provide much more detail about leases in their quarterly and annual filings (think 10-Qs and 10-Ks).
LeaseAccelerator Recent Developments
In December 2019 LeaseAccelerator released the latest full support for the GASB 87 lease accounting standard. Over the next 12 months, state and local government agencies as well as many state-funded port authorities, educational institutions, hospitals, and health systems will be adopting these new standards.
In February 2019 LeaseAccelerator has developed a testing application called the Lease Accounting Validator that automates the testing of leases under the new ASC 842 and IFRS 16 standards, as well as frozen GAAP.
When the combinations of rent, classifications, financial variables, fiscal calendars, and contract options are considered, there are almost 100 billion possible scenarios that can occur in real estate and equipment leases. Examples of the various elements which drive the different scenarios include the timing and frequency of payments, rent, and contractual modifications as well as the planned and actual end-of-term options.
The Lease Accounting Validator analyzes each lease in a customer’s portfolio to identify the permutations of lease terms and fiscal periods as well as the expected and actual events that occur during the life of a lease. It then automatically executes the processes and reporting needed to calculate and then validate the accuracy of all of the journal entries throughout the lease from the initial commencement to the end of the term. The Validator also automatically analyzes test results to ensure that the calculations tie out.
LeaseAccelerator’s GASB 87 lease accounting functionality enables organizations to comply with the new standards quickly and easily. Designed to automate the record-to-report process, LeaseAccelerator performs the accounting calculations, financial reporting, and month-end close activities required for compliance, enabling users to focus on managing policies, analyses, and exceptions.
In February 2018 developed a testing application called the Lease Accounting Validator that automates the testing of leases under the new ASC 842 and IFRS 16 standards, as well as frozen GAAP.
With the initial deadlines passed on January 1st, 2019, public companies need to know that the lease accounting software they selected works for their specific portfolio, and not just for a handful of generic or illustrative examples. When the combinations of rent, classifications, financial variables, fiscal calendars, and contract options are considered, there are almost 100 billion possible scenarios that can occur in real estate and equipment leases.
