Thinking About Shifting Away From Leasing? --Here Are A Few Factors to Consider Before You Make the Decision

Bloomberg BNA

September 10, 2018

By: Xing Gao

As companies wrap up their implementation of the new lease accounting standards, it is time to think about how business decisions may change as a result of the new rules. In a phone interview with Bloomberg Tax, Sheri Wyatt, a partner with PwC’s Accounting Advisory practice, talked about a few ways business decisions could be affected and what companies need to take into consideration when making decisions due to the new lease accounting standards.

Lease vs. Buy

With all the new leasing rules, one question companies might have is whether it still makes sense to lease or is it more beneficial to buy. Wyatt said that historically, many companies were attracted to leasing because under the old rules, companies could keep their leases off-balance-sheet. Now, under the new leasing standard ASU 2016-02, companies are required to recognize all leased assets and liabilities on their balance sheets.

“With the advantage of keeping assets off balance sheets going away, companies need to re-evaluate their lease vs. buy decisions,” Wyatt said. She emphasized that the decision should be made based on what is more economically beneficial to the company.

She went on to say that real estate assets require a bigger investment, it makes more sense to lease these assets for a longer term. So, overall building leases will likely remain more attractive to retail companies. Additionally, for rapidly depreciating equipment, leasing will also remain more attractive than owning.
