Non-current assets, needed for our company's operation, can be owned or rented. IFRS 16 standard deals with leases. It defines accounting requirements for lessees and lessors as well. The accounting model for lessees and lessor is not symmetrical. Lessees have to recognise lease liability reflecting future lease payments and a right-of-use asset for almost all lease contracts. On the other side for lessors the accounting model depends on the classification of a lease as operating or finance lease.
