Course Description

County and City Mayors, City Managers, Director of Schools, County Highway Officials and others in local government management are responsible for accumulating all lease contract information for the FYE June 30, 2022.  This course is designed to enable local government officials, budget/finance directors, and their staff, to better prepare for GASB Statement No. 87 Leases which is effective for FYE June 30, 2022.  Beginning asset and related lease liability amounts must be calculated as of July 1, 2021 (FYE June 30, 2021).   This course can help identify the internal process of accumulating lease contract information and understand the accounting issues to be better prepared for your FY 2022 annual external audit.  Currently the Tennessee Comptroller’s Office of Local Government Audit (LGA) is taking the position that if the County does not prepare these lease accounting schedules and have copies of lease contracts available for examination by the auditors then you may receive a possible audit finding for FY 2022.

This course qualifies for 1.5 hours of continuing professional education (CPE) credits for Certified County Finance Officer (CCFO), Certified Municipal Finance Officer (CMFO), Certified Public Accountant (CPA), CTAS COCTP program and for County Commissioners.
