Does your business have any rental or leasing arrangements? If so, IFRS 16 is the new accounting standard that could dramatically impact your business’s balance sheet, increasing debt, EBITDA, change your business value and much more.

There’s still time to be proactive, get prepared and make plans (earning some CPD points along the way!). Join us at our free morning event with BNP Paribas Real Estate to find out more.

Does your business rent or lease property, vehicles, equipment or anything else? If you do, you need to know all about the major changes coming up in leasing.

IFRS 16 is a new standard due to come into force in 2019. It means leasing arrangements that aren't currently on your balance sheet will now show up as an asset or liability. It could fundamentally change the way your financial statements look with implications for how the business is perceived, it's rating, dividend policy, bank covenants and bonus arrangements.

Join us on Tuesday 20 June to hear more and find out what you should do

As well as our panel of experts in tax, audit and mergers and acquisitions (M&A), we’ll be joined by a banking expert from one of the leading banks, and Becky Thompson from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Caroline Bowne, Group Financial Controller at Next PLC. We'll also be joined by BNP Paribas' Elizabeth Cain, Head of Client Finance and Chris Ramsden, Portfolio Strategy.

Together, we’ll introduce IFRS 2016, talk about what it means for your business’ tax position and value, and then talk through what to do next so you go through a smooth transition.

Who’ve we invited?

We’ve invited businesses with property, both landlords and those with leased estates and any businesses who lease vehicles or equipment on a large scale. We’ve invited group financial controllers, financial directors, people who work at banks and managing directors.

But it’s not limited to people with certain job titles. To tackle IFRS 16 properly, you’ll need involve the right people from different areas of your business – including finance, property, tax, procurement, legal and logistics. Come if you’re interested and the changes affect you.

What will we talk about?

Audit Director, Catherine Kelly, will talk about the immediate impacts on accounting and financial statements, and what stakeholders you should involve from across your business. Cat will get into some of the detail and cover when IFRS 16 will start to affect you.

Tax Director, Jeremy Chapman, will then consider the affects IFRS 16 will have on your tax position and discuss changes to things such employee benefits. Andy Parker Corporate Finance Partner, will share his thoughts on how it will affect the M&A market and your businesses EBITDA and valuation.

We’ll then hear from three guest speakers. A banking expert will discuss the effect of the new rules from a banking and retail perspective. Becky Thompson, UK Valuations Associate Director from RICS will talk about the practical application of the changes and how to make them work for you. Caroline Browne, Group Financial Controller at Next PLC will talk you through how a company like Next is getting themselves prepared right now for the upcoming change.

Here at PKF Cooper, brand is something hugely important to us. It’s a way of communicating our values and the way we are, all without the use of words. It creates an opportunity to show differences and create choices.

Not-for-profit brand loyalty depends upon connecting with audiences on an emotional level – and those deep connections can best be achieved through an authentic brand that communicates the unique, distinctive essence and purpose of the organisation.

We have invited a leading expert in brand strategy – Ollie Leggett, MD and Brand Consultant at IE – to talk about the importance of brand. He’ll describe how brands develop, how they reflect the organisations they represent – and the perils of straying from your core DNA.

It’s never just about a logo. It’s about finding your voice, defining your identity and enriching the conversation you’re having with your audiences – always ensuring your organisation’s core values are at the heart of everything you do.

About Ollie Leggett

A former teacher and charity trustee, Ollie has over two decades of not-for-profit brand experience, working with clients including Cranfield University, The Schools of King Edward VI in Birmingham, TeachFirst, the University of Birmingham, CLIC Sargent, pfeg and Career Ready.
