Eric Williams, Senior Vice President, explains the decision and unanimous vote of FASB that took place July 17, 2019.
An important decision around lease accounting for privately-held companies recently took place. FASB voted unanimously on July 17, 2019 to propose delaying the effective date of ASC-842 for privately-held companies, nonprofits, and small reporting companies.
What it Means - The delay allows for an additional year – until January 2021 - for privately-held companies to integrate the rules into their accounting practice. The lease accounting standards for public companies went into effect January 2019.

Also, wake up with intention. Regardless of how big or small, having one shifts my mindset to a happy, positive state and sets the tone of my day. Lastly, having a plan is a great strategy to check off every box on your to-do list. I don’t allow myself to procrastinate. I like to get things done! I review everything that needs my attention and either get it done, move it forward, or eliminate it. I don't want to revisit things once I’ve decided on it. The goal is to make each day count. —Gail Corder Fischer, Executive Vice Chairman of Fischer & Company, a leading global corporate real estate firm that provides consulting, brokerage and technology solutions
Keep politely asking until you get the result you want.
