Top 4 Benefits of Outsourcing Your ASC 842 Lease Accounting Solution

Complying with the new lease accounting standard (ASC 842) should not be a costly, time-consuming endeavor. The ideal lease accounting solution enables a company to comply with ASC 842 while, in parallel to improving efficiency and minimizing costs, allowing clients to focus on their core businesses.

The following are four benefits that leading consulting firms like Dacarba LLC, an Opportune LLP company, can offer to clients when providing outsourcing lease management and reporting solutions through a turnkey service.

1)  Immediate output from a proven, reliable source:

Dacarba’s outsourced centralized solution for lease agreements provides document management, archiving, journal entries and reporting from Nakisa, an industry leader in lease accounting solution.

2)  Minimal impact to current lease management process:

Outsourcing reduces clients’ need to significantly reorganize their current organization and processes to centralize data under a self-implementation approach.

3)  Lower cost to implement and execute:

Elimination of software licensing, hardware, IT, audit and accounting personnel costs, which can provide a savings of between $250,000 to $300,000 per year.
