Lease Abstraction Service

Multilingual information extraction – reading between the lines

Are you ready for IFRS 16?

As you might be aware, IFRS 16 replaces IAS 17 and is the new lease accounting standard. It was issued in January 2016 and will become effective for financial periods beginning on or after 1st January 2019.

IFRS 16 introduces a single lessee accounting model and requires a lessee to recognise assets and liabilities for all leases across the organisation with a term of more than 12 months.

Case study:

A global fashion brand required Today Translations to extract key information from leases across their Japanese and Chinese retail outlets. The inventory of information was translated into English for internal audit and regulatory compliance.

Today Translations formed a project team including qualified linguists with sector experience to review leases in the original language.

The lease abstraction service provided the client with cost savings of 89% vs. translating the entire leases and enabled them to reduce the overall turnaround time from weeks to days.
