Accounting system provides a rich tool set

Financial accounting system comes with a great set of tools, which helps in everyday tasks that previously took away a few hours from your employees.

Firstly, automated tools could calculate lease liability based on the given parameters. The system calculates the initial measurement of the lease liability at the commencement date and subsequent measurements at the end of each reporting period (e.g., monthly, quarterly or yearly). If the circumstances change, system will automatically adjust the lease liability.

Secondly, the initial measurement of the right-of-use asset could be calculated automatically too. It consists of lease liability, lease payments made on or before the commencement date of the lease, any initial direct cost incurred by the lessee and estimate of cost of dismantling/restoring the asset at end of lease. If the lease liability is re-assessed, the RoU asset value changes accordingly.

Automated helper for preparing your financial disclosures

The Soft4Lessee provides ready reports which you need for your financial reporting and helps to prepare additional information for IFRS 16, ASC 842 or AASB 16 financial disclosures, so you will not have to worry about complying with lease accounting standards anymore.

Talking about financial disclosures, it is mandatory to present the statement of financial position, profit and loss statement and cash flow statement once a year. All of these helps to identify the financial status of your company. In the statement of financial position, you have to present right-of-use assets, per asset category (separately from other assets) and lease liabilities, separately from other liabilities. In the profit and loss statement, you must present the interest expense on lease liability and the depreciation charge for the right-of-use asset. And in the cash flow statement, it is required to present separate cash payments for the principal portion of the lease liability and interest portion.

These three mandatory statements are readily available from financial accounting system for reporting or uploading to other general ledger systems you may use.
