Introduction of IFRS 16

The International Accounting Standards Board gave IFRS 16 Leases (IFRS 16 or the new standard) in January 2016 with a powerful execution date of 1 January 2019. IFRS 16 supplanted the old standard, IAS 17. IFRS 16 was acquainted with dispose of all cockeyed sheets representing leases.

Effect of IFRS 16 on the privilege of utilization resources

Under the IFRS 16 Tax impact new standard, an agreement is or contains a lease if it passes on the privilege of utilization resources (basic resource) for a while in return for thought.

Lessee

The IFRS 16 Tax impact new standard expects Lessees to perceive leases on their accounting reports aside from low worth resources and transient leases.

The lessee must at first perceive a privilege of utilization resource and a comparing obligation at the present estimation of future lease installments. Any lease installments made diminishes the lease obligation just as the privilege of utilization resource.

A devaluation cost of the privilege of utilization resource and an intriguing tax on the remarkable lease risk is within the pay articulation.

The above single accounting model never again recognizes money and operating leases from a leasing viewpoint just like the case under IAS 17. This IFRS 16 Tax implication implies leases that were recently arranged by lessees as operating leases and accordingly treated as cockeyed sheet rights or commitments may be perceived on the monetary record on the off chance that they meet the IFRS 16 criteria.

Lessor

Expense treatment

Finance lease

Area 59(3) of the ITA gives that a lease qualifies as an account leasing if any of the accompanying conditions are met:

• The finance lease term surpasses seventy-five percent of the successful existence of the leased property;

• The lessee has an alternative to buying the property at a fixed or definable cost at the termination of the lease; or

• The assessed leftover estimation of the property to the lessor at the lapse of the lease term is under 20% of it’s fairly estimated worth at the beginning of the lease.

An IFRS 16 Tax impact lessee guarantees capital recompenses regarding a lease property just as deduct the intrigue cost on installments.

The lessor under this course of action treated the intrigue salary got from the lessee as a feature of its assessable pay.

Expense outcomes after actualizing IFRS 16

Finance lease

The expense law on the treatment of Finance leases continues as before. Segment 59 of the ITA accommodates tax outcomes of a money lease and these will keep on applying for Finance leases. If the lease under IFRS 16 Tax impact doesn’t meet the definition for a Finance lease under the ITA, it serves as an operating lease for tax purposes.

Operating lease

For operating leases, the Lessee isn’t qualified for guarantee capital remittances since the lessor claims recompenses regarding the leased resource. The intrigue cost in the pay articulation should be tax-deductible. Nonetheless, the devaluation taxed for the privilege of utilization resources does not serve as a tax-deductible cost. The capital part of the occasional lease installment on the asset report in our view serves as a tax-deductible cost given that from a tax insightful the substance of the exchange doesn’t change yet just the accounting revelation. URA might be of an alternate view concerning the Tax deductibility of the capital part. Further commitment with the URA helps concur on this position.

The IFRS 16 Tax impact for lessors remain unchanged,

For example, they guarantee capital stipends and lease pay stays assessable.

Other leasing tax results

Instances of substances  affected by the IFRS 16 Tax impact new standard include:

• Telecoms need to think about their agreements with tower

Organizations, information, and fixed-line contracts;

• Retail and buyer item substances. For example, markets, eatery networks, and filling stations should consider their present agreements for space, while armada chiefs survey their client contracts;

• Banks with wide branch systems and difference ATM

Machines need to reassess their agreements;

• Lessees with contracts for the lease of property and office space; and

Lastly, Mining, oil and gas substances that lease gear just as land and structures.

In an ongoing IFRS 16 Tax impact Appeals Tribunal Case of KGRN decided that a cost caused for the lease of land isn’t an income cost and in like manner isn’t assess deductible.

Takeaway

Citizens ought to reassess their car lease agreements to decide if they qualify as leases under IFRS 16 Tax impact. When resolved, the right tax accounting standards will be in place.
