Effective 1st January 2019, your bank is required to account for all leases under the requirement of the new International Financial Reporting Standards Sixteen (IFRS 16). The standard requires that your bank accounts for leased assets (Right-of-Use Assets) and Lease liability on the financial statements.
Bank of Uganda, the banking regulator under Instruction Circular EDS.306.2 dated 20th February 2019 requires all Supervised Financial Institutions to submit a return in respect to IFRS 16 by 31st July 2019. The closer the deadline, the higher the cost for Your bank. To comply, you must urgently review all her assets for IFRS 16 specifically classification and measurement. In addition, your bank must decide on the first adoption approach.
To avoid possible late submission penalties, and/ or increased regulatory oversight for poor responsiveness, Summit Consulting Ltd presents this proposal to support IFRS 16 Tool modelling to facilitate IFRS 16 compliance and swift reporting to Bank of Uganda as per requirements.
