GE Fleet Services webinar to examine FASB lease accounting changes


GE Capital Fleet Services will host a free webinar on Thursday, March 17, from 1 to 2 p.m. CT to examine how potential changes by the Financial Accounting Standards Board and International Accounting Standards Board could change balance sheet and income statement presentation for certain lease financings. The current proposed changes mandate that the lessee’s balance sheet reflect assets, such as corporate vehicle leases, and liabilities arising under leases.

The online webinar will feature Jeanine Flower, senior technical controller for GE Capital, Americas; and Brad Hoffelt, senior vice president of analytics at GE Capital Fleet Services. Topics discussed during the webinar will include:
• Economic implications of the recent proposed changes;
• How these changes could impact fleet assets; and
• What fleet managers can do to prepare for the proposed rule changes.

Participants will be able to interact directly with speakers by submitting questions during the webinar. For further information, e-mail GE Capital Fleet Services at
