IFRS 16 with Anaplan

 

From 2019 onwards, the new IFRS 16 accounting standard must be applied. The valuation of lease constructions on the balance sheet can have a lot of impact on the figures of your organisation. Our custom built application allows users to easily manage their lease contracts while complying with IFRS.

 

Our specialists have developed a standard IFRS 16 solution on the Anaplan platform alongside our partner Finext. The advantage of this cloud-based solution lies in the rapid implementation and limited need for IT resources. The application is flexible enough to grow with the organisation without having to make investments in advance. Anaplan is also known to be highly user-friendly with an intuitive interface where all data is managed centrally. 

IFRS 16 Application

 

The IFRS 16 Anaplan application that we have developed in conjunction with our partner Finext gives users the option of easily creating new contracts and modifying existing contracts. In addition, an automated upload can also be developed, whereby it is clear which contracts are new or modified. The financial consequences of contract changes are automatically calculated. Anaplan offers the functionality to process the results of these calculations directly in your ERP system. This custom built application can be implemented within your organisation within a short period of time and with no requirement to be a current Anaplan customer.

Users can manually change contract details, of which its financial effects are automatically recalculated throughout the model. An automated upload is also possible.

All financial data is presented in dynamic reports. The blue input fields indicate that users can make manual adjustments to lease contracts.

The workflow keeps an overview of the status of all contracts, including the responsible user.

The dashboard give insights in monthly payments and cashflows concerning lease payments.

Various graphs show what impact IFRS 16 has on assets, liabilities, depreciation and cashflow.

Journal entries are calculated in the model and gathered in this dashboard, to easily export this for your local ERP system.
