About the Application

Nakisa Lease Administration is a holistic lease management, accounting, and reporting solution designed to support regulatory compliance with IFRS 16 and ASC 842, as well as GASB 87. As a comprehensive lease accounting solution, Nakisa Lease Administration allows organizations to centralize global leasing data, gain insight into lease liabilities and commitments, and streamline lease accounting operations.

The solution offers functionality that assists customers in their efforts to be compliant with the following IASB, FASB, and GASB requirements:

  • Lease inception (asset capitalization and lease obligation, including base rent, extensions, initial direct costs, incentives, prepaid, index, termination option, and purchase option)
  • Lease events:
    • Asset casualties
    • Reassessments (selection of which terms and conditions are likely to be exercised, extensions, terminations, and early buyout)
    • Lease modifications (rent modification, new terms and conditions, rate modification, scope increases and decreases)
    • Asset impairment
    • Intercompany asset transfer
  • Multi-GAAP: Financial schedules per accounting standard, and per classification type (finance, operating, short term, low value, service)

    Note: Nakisa Lease Administration supports ASC 842 Operating leases with the following limitation in multi-GAAP: The application does not support postings to different asset acquisition GL accounts when two accounting standards in the same lease have finance and operating lease classifications.

    • Account assignment in SAP should be set up in order to book asset capitalization to separate GL accounts in order to be reported under different balance sheet positions.
  • Non-lease components
  • Support of Parallel ledger accounting in SAP
  • Support of New Asset Accounting in SAP
  • Support of parallel connections to SAP
  • Connected and disconnected modes (with respect to SAP)
  • Full retrospective transition accounting
  • Proposed approach for modified retrospective transition accounting

Financial users can collect lease contract information, review and approve financial schedules, onboard leased assets and operate the lease (i.e., track asset status and trigger posting executions).

Furthermore, business roles segregation, classification and approval workflow logic, alerts and notifications, as well as reporting and dashboard capabilities support the business processes executed for common operational events.
