Audit-proof lease accounting
in accordance with IFRS 16

Transparent lease accounting with LISA

SAP integration at its best - dealing with IFRS 16 could hardly be easier

Since the operating lease was recognized in the balance sheet as of January 1, 2019, IKOR provides the appropriate SAP Add-on with LISA. The tool handles your lease accounting quickly and transparently while being audit-proof.

From LISA directly into the general ledger 

LISA stands for “leasing according to IFRS 16 accounting standards” – the name says it all. LISA is the only IFRS 16 tool that has been developed exclusively for the new accounting standard as a sub-ledger in SAP FI.  

The workflow in LISA is automated to the maximum: It starts with a unified contract database and ends by creating your IFRS 16 notes with a single click. All business transactions, including reassessments and contract modifications, are covered. The necessary calculations and postings are done automatically. In addition to lessee contracts, sublease and lessor contracts can be processed and reported as well.  

LISA is fast, secure, and IFRS 16-compliant - all within SAP ERP

From contract management to the IFRS 16 notes - maximum degree of automation with LISA

Key Benefits

LISA is a standard software perfectly tailored to corporate practice

Standardization & Streamlined Closing

LISA standardizes the management and processing of contract data. The approval workflow and the detailed documentation of individual work steps support collaboration across different departments and company locations. Reports developed in accordance with IFRS 16 provide the required information at the click of a button.

Audit Security & Compliance

Extensive plausibility checks ensure the necessary data quality. The versioning of all contract changes, the documentation of all work steps, and the comprehensive reports guarantee a transparent process. In accordance with the assigned authorizations, the results are verifiable and easy to understand for different stakeholders such as
management, internal and external auditors.

Lean & Seamless Implementation

Full SAP integration reduces error-proneness and improves the user experience. Implementing and customizing the tool is easy and highly flexible. Since there are no external interfaces, implementation projects can be kept lean. This almost eliminates project risks completely.

Core Functions

Contract Management

LISA supports organizations in managing and processing lessee and lessor contracts as well as sublease cases. Master data can be maintained and changed manually or with an Excel up-and-download function. Mass data changes are therefore easily handled. The general data structure is standardized but can be customized if necessary.

Financial Forecast

Companies can maintain contract changes and modifications in LISA on an ongoing basis. The tool automatically calculates all necessary line items over the entire contract term. Contract adjustments affect and change the calculation of line items accordingly. LISA also enables organizations to account for their leasing contracts according to different accounting standards and currencies.

Posting Sessions

All business transactions can be automatically posted from LISA to the general ledger (SAP FI) and asset accounting (SAP FI-AA). At the same time, it is possible to differentiate between short and long-term liabilities by using different accounts. Furthermore, LISA also features statistical postings (i.e., postings made exclusively in the LISA sub-ledger) of short-term and low-value contracts and intercompany cases.

Reporting & Planning

The asset-leasing history sheet contains all IFRS 16 notes-relevant information from the contract management and the financial forecast. The grid evaluation can be configured individually and can be expanded to meet customer-specific requirements. Actual and plan line items can be displayed in any currency.

Contract Details: Comprehensive and customizable

General, term-related, and RoU-specific information is recorded on three tabs. When a contract gets approved, an asset is automatically created in SAP FI-AA: There, the asset master record is filled with the specific contract information. The fields displayed can be flexibly shown or hidden. Organizations can adapt the fields to their individual needs.

Conditions: Suitable for any contract constellation

All common contract components can be recorded by using different condition types. The various condition types trigger different valuations and calculations in the financial forecast according to regulatory requirements.

Options: Easy to maintain and always in view

Purchase, extension, and termination options can be maintained along with the probability of occurrence and other relevant information. In addition, LISA makes it possible to monitor contracts with options via so-called resubmission reporting.

Interest Valuation: Automatically derived or manually maintained

Interest rates can be retrieved directly from the corresponding SAP interest reference tables. The applicable interest rate is determined according to company code, contract type, and term. However, interest rates can also be maintained and adjusted manually.

Financial Forecast: All business transactions over time

The financial forecast is the central component in the valuation of leasing contracts in accordance with IFRS 16. All line items to be posted are displayed comprehensively - including the right-of-use capitalization, posting of the lease liability, discounting, compounding, depreciation, forex effects, and other statistical postings. Additionally, the impact of contract reassessments or modifications can be calculated and displayed - retrospectively or future-oriented.

Posting Sessions: FI documents without interfaces

The line items calculated by the financial forecast are posted to the assigned accounts via direct input by executing the periodic posting sessions.
