Planon’s software is specifically designed to support multinational organizations. Planon considers it of strategic importance to complement its global coverage with a local presence. Therefore, Planon facilitates the management of delivery and implementation at a local level and ensures compliance with local and legal requirements. There is a growing demand in the Nordics for Integrated Workplace Management Systems, lease accounting solutions, and operations platforms for service providers and therefore increasing the importance for Planon to be present in this market with a local office.
Planon Risks and Challenges
Optional extension periods need to be included in capitalization when “reasonably certain.” This leaves space for interpretation and significant compliance risk at the same time. During the assessments of the financial reporting by accountants, the reasoning for eventual exclusion needs to be accepted. Specific attention is required on the impact of indexations. Any changes in the index require under IFRS 16 a complete recalculation, which can elevate the volatility of lease accounting figures of the right of use and liability.
