Daimler’s transition to IFRS 16 (Leases)

In January 2016, the IASB published IFRS 16 Leases, replacing IAS 17 Leases and IFRIC 4 Determining Whether an Arrangement Contains a Lease and other interpretations. IFRS 16 abolishes for lessees the previous classification of leasing agreements as either operating or finance leases. Instead, IFRS 16 introduces a single lessee accounting model, requiring lessees to recognize assets for the right to use as well as leasing liabilities for the outstanding lease payments. This means that leases that were previously not reported in the Statement of Financial Position will have to be reported in the future – very similar to the current accounting of finance leases.
