OneStream IFRS16 starter kit

The IFRS16 regulations have kept accounting professionals busy the past year and will probably keep doing so until the processes have been smoothed and automated. Many organizations are looking for a system to support both their regulatory and internal information needs. And many solutions are available, however most early adopters struggled with their implementation due to the lack of flexibility of these tools.

A flexible lease accounting solution

During our IFRS16 implementations so far, we’ve discovered that each organization wants to implement a system to their specific needs. A rigid out-of-box solution often doesn’t fulfill all the needs and is complex and time consuming to adjust. Therefore, we decided to develop a starter kit with best practices from earlier implementations. This starter kit is open and flexible, so you can easily adjust this IFRS solution to your needs.

In addition to best practices, our starter kit in OneStream utilizes both the analytical capabilities and the relational blending features that differentiate OneStream from other available solutions on the market.
