Overview of Changes
There are two core types of leases for mailing equipment:
1) Finance Leases – Leases with fixed buyout amounts or where the asset is assumed
to be acquired at the end of the term. This had been recognized on the balance sheet in
the past and will continue.
2) Operating Leases – Leases without having a buyout clearly defined and with the
potential for a future useful life of the asset after the termination of the lease. Most
mailing equipment leases fit this category. In the past, only the expense of the lease
payment was listed on the Income Statement. With the new standards, the future value
of all lease payments needs to be put onto the Balance Sheet as a liability.
The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has established new lease rules (ASC 842) that
require companies to record operating leases on the balance sheet as a liability vs. only declaring the
expense on the income statement.
– Must include the full future discounted value of the remaining lease obligations.
– Public companies – Starts 12/15/18
– Non Public companies – Starts 12/15/19
– Will require that you have full visibility to all leases
– They apply to any agreement over 12 months in term and specific longer-term rentals may need to be
considered.
March 14, 2018 4
Example:
Mailing Equipment Lease at $200 per month with a 48-month term. 36 months are remaining.
• Income Statement - $200 per month X 12 months - $2400 of annual expense
• (New) Balance Sheet – 36 months remaining @ $200 per month - $7200 as a liability (This
can be reduced based on the company’s discount rate.)

What do you need to do?
1. DON’T DELAY
2. Engage key stakeholders – Procurement/AP/Real
Estate/Legal/Finance
3. Take Inventory - Get a handle of your lease portfolio
4. Look at procuring a spend management system
5. Plan for the Future
Do not underestimate the amount of work required
…Almost one-fourth (23%) of companies surveyed in May 2017 by PwC and commercial real estate services firm
CBRE said they hadn't started their lease accounting adoption efforts yet. And a Deloitte survey showed that 31.4% of
more than 2,150 executives polled in May 2017 said their organizations were unprepared to comply with the
new standard. - Tysiac, Ken. Lease accounting laggards face serious risks. Journal of Accountancy. Web. Jan 1, 2018.

The New Lease Accounting Standard - Are You Ready for the Deadline?

  • 1. The New Lease Accounting Standard – Are you Ready for the Deadline?
  • 2. Adam Lewenberg - Background and Experience • President of Postal Advocate Inc. – The only mail audit and recovery firm in the US and Canada – Manage a portfolio of just under 100,000 pieces of mailing equipment for the largest US companies. – Speak and teach nationally on mail savings and industry trends. • Former Industry Co Chair- Boston Postal Customer Council/Mail Systems Management Association member.

  • 4. Overview of Changes There are two core types of leases for mailing equipment: 1) Finance Leases – Leases with fixed buyout amounts or where the asset is assumed to be acquired at the end of the term. This had been recognized on the balance sheet in the past and will continue. 2) Operating Leases – Leases without having a buyout clearly defined and with the potential for a future useful life of the asset after the termination of the lease. Most mailing equipment leases fit this category. In the past, only the expense of the lease payment was listed on the Income Statement. With the new standards, the future value of all lease payments needs to be put onto the Balance Sheet as a liability. The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has established new lease rules (ASC 842) that require companies to record operating leases on the balance sheet as a liability vs. only declaring the expense on the income statement. – Must include the full future discounted value of the remaining lease obligations. – Public companies – Starts 12/15/18 – Non Public companies – Starts 12/15/19 – Will require that you have full visibility to all leases – They apply to any agreement over 12 months in term and specific longer-term rentals may need to be considered. March 14, 2018 4
  • 5. Example: Mailing Equipment Lease at $200 per month with a 48-month term. 36 months are remaining. • Income Statement - $200 per month X 12 months - $2400 of annual expense • (New) Balance Sheet – 36 months remaining @ $200 per month - $7200 as a liability (This can be reduced based on the company’s discount rate.) March 14, 2018 5 Annual Income Statement (values in 000's) Balance Sheet (values in 000's) Period Ending: 12/31/2017 Period Ending: 12/31/2017 Total Revenue $3,549,948 Current Assets Cost of Revenue $1,722,669 Total Current Assets $2,636,508 Gross Profit $1,827,279 Long-Term Assets $3,982,298 Operating Expenses Deferred Asset Charges $59,909 Research and Development $129,767 Total Assets $6,678,715 Sales, General and Admin. $1,237,739 Current Liabilities Non-Recurring Items $59,431 Total Current Liabilities $2,054,993 Operating Income $400,342 Long Term Liabilities $4,435,161 Add'l income/expense items ($3,856) Total Liabilities $6,490,154 Earnings Before Interest and Tax $396,486 Stock Holders Equity Interest Expense $113,497 Total Equity $188,561 Earnings Before Tax $282,989 Total Liabilities & Equity $6,678,715 Income Tax $21,649 Net Income $261,340 INCOME STATEMENT BALANCE SHEET
  • 6. What do you need to do? 1. DON’T DELAY 2. Engage key stakeholders – Procurement/AP/Real Estate/Legal/Finance 3. Take Inventory - Get a handle of your lease portfolio 4. Look at procuring a spend management system 5. Plan for the Future Do not underestimate the amount of work required …Almost one-fourth (23%) of companies surveyed in May 2017 by PwC and commercial real estate services firm CBRE said they hadn't started their lease accounting adoption efforts yet. And a Deloitte survey showed that 31.4% of more than 2,150 executives polled in May 2017 said their organizations were unprepared to comply with the new standard. - Tysiac, Ken. Lease accounting laggards face serious risks. Journal of Accountancy. Web. Jan 1, 2018. March 14, 2018 6
  • 7. Why is this important? 1. Organizations will need increased oversight on their current and future leases to make sure the liabilities they have/or are entering make the most sense for their organization’s financial picture that will be shown on the balance sheet. 2. You will need to have a much higher level of visibility than you’ve had in the past which will require new processes to develop and maintain. March 14, 2018 7
  • 8. Challenges with Getting Visibility It continues to be very difficult to get full visibility to the mailing category because of the following: 1. Mailing vendors do not offer consistent reporting 2. Even if you have copies of lease agreements, the date a lease was signed is typically different from the lease commencement date 3. End of lease dates are not shown on any invoices 4. Decentralized purchasing processes where the locations, divisions or regions act independently on their mailing agreements 5. Keeping track of mergers, acquisitions or divestitures March 14, 2018 8
  • 9. Challenges with Getting Visibility (Cont’d) 6. There may be multiple vendors used throughout the locations increasing the difficulty of full visibility. 7. Questionable mailing equipment vendor lease renewal practices that extend obligations such as the following: – Trying to get locations to renew early without properly disclosing the end of lease terms. – Offering special incentives to renew early by clicking on an email, offering gift cards to renew or to renew by paying an invoice at a discounted rate without properly disclosing end of lease dates. – Reaching out to location level contacts (vs. headquarter decision makers) and getting them to renew leases when they may not be properly authorized to do so. – Automatic evergreen extensions if new agreements are not put in place 30-90 days prior to the end of term. March 14, 2018 9
  • 10. What information do you need to provide? Any agreement greater than 12 months needs to be identified, tracked and reported on. You will need to know the following details for all your leases: • Lease Number • Location Address • Term/Lease Period • Monthly Amount • Commencement Date • End of Lease Date • Items Included in the Agreement – Including model and serial numbers and equipment descriptions. We are finding many of our clients are investing in spend management systems to help them manage and maintain this data. They are coming to us to provide the information above, so they can keep these systems maintained. March 14, 2018 10
  • 11. How do you get visibility? 1. Reach out to vendors – See what reports are available 2. Go to Accounts Payable – Get exports of paid invoices 3. Set up log-ins on the mailing vendor’s website 4. Reach out to vendors to validate end of lease dates 5. Keep this information updated with contract changes March 14, 2018 11
  • 12. Best Practices 1. Have leases reviewed centrally vs. being approved throughout your locations. This assures visibility and oversight. 2. Ask about rental and purchase options before committing to a lease. 3. Work with your finance department to make sure leases comply with company standards. 4. Review the terms and conditions of your agreements to understand end of lease options and financing fees. 5. Set up a process to manage the portfolio to make sure you are capturing the most up to date information. March 14, 2018 12
