BST & Co. to host seminar on leveraging the new lease accounting standard for CFOs and controllers



ALBANY, New York, September 16, 2019 – BST & Co. CPAs, LLP, one of the Capital Region’s leading financial and management consulting firms, invites chief financial officers and controllers to an interactive panel discussion on how to extract value and manage the cost and complexity of implementing the new lease accounting standard. The discussion will be held on Thursday, September 26 from 8 to 10:30 a.m. at Wolferts Roost Country Club in Albany.

Due to the complexity of implementation, the Financial Accounting Standards Board is considering delaying the effective date of the new lease accounting standard. The program will provide an overview of technology available to streamline the data collection, accounting and financial reporting process. Real estate lease administration and equipment financing experts will also discuss how to leverage lease accounting data to optimize lease terms and reduce financing and operating costs. Attendees will be eligible to earn two hours of CPE credit.

“The implementation of the new lease accounting standard is costly and complex. Our panel of accounting and leasing experts will share their experiences in helping clients navigate this process and create value from the data collection,” said BST & Co. Managing Partner Ron Guzior. “Attendees will also have the opportunity to have their questions answered directly by professionals from BST, Cresa and Key Equipment Finance.”

The panel of presenters includes:

Beth van Bladel, CPA, Director, CFO for Hire, Division of BST & Co.
Zac Conley, CCIM, Managing Principal, Cresa
Michael Hetchkop, Principal, Lease Forensics & Enforcement, Cresa
Mark Hoffman, Vice President, Key Equipment Finance
