Why attend

The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) has amended its leasing standard, which will significantly change how leases are accounted for under GASB 87. When the leasing standard becomes effective, your tribal government and tribal entities will need to evaluate leases to determine what changes to the accounting of leases need to be made. As a result of these standards, the leasing arrangement for new leases should be a consideration of your tribal entity.


Attendees of this webinar will learn the implementation dates of GASB 87, how to implement and the impact they will have on financial statements and disclosures. In addition, we will provide case studies based on Wipfli’s experience and knowledge in the tribal government space.

Learning objectives:

  1. Overview and implementation date of GASB 87 standard.
  2. Evaluate leases and make a determination on treatment.
  3. Overview of the impact on financial statement presentation and disclosures GASB 87.

Who should attend?

This course is designed for finance and management-level employees of primary governments and other tribal governmental entities.
