Vaco, a national consulting and talent solutions firm, joined LeaseAccelerator’s global alliance program. The new alliance will help companies accelerate adoption of the new lease accounting standards, ASC 842 and IFRS 16. The new standards will have material impacts to corporate balance sheets and will require significant changes to systems, processes, policies and controls.
As the initial January 1, 2019 deadline is looming for public companies, experts with strong lease accounting and project management skills are both in high demand and in short supply. Vaco will leverage its unique consulting and strategic staffing model to help clients implementing LeaseAccelerator’s Enterprise Lease Accounting software application with a full suite of services needed to comply with ASC 842, including:
“With the implementation deadlines for the lease accounting standards just a few months away, many companies are beginning to hit the panic button,” said June Becker, managing partner with Vaco’s Philadelphia office. “Vaco can jump in to help get projects back on schedule by deploying a hand-picked, fully trained and certified team of accounting superstars who live for complex operational challenges like implementing ASC 842.”
“If accounting teams are going to deploy the necessary systems, processes, policies and controls in time, they will need to think outside of the box about how to source talent for this complex initiative,” said Tyler Mills, vice president of global alliances for LeaseAccelerator. “We are thrilled to offer our customers access to such a diverse community of top talent via Vaco’s unique staffing model.”
