Ind AS 17 Leases : Ind AS 17 Leases prescribes the accounting policies and disclosures applicable to leases, both for lessees and lessors. Leases are required to be classified as either finance leases (which transfer substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership, and give rise to asset and liability recognition by the lessee and a receivable by the lessor) and operating leases (which result in expense recognition by the lessee, with the asset remaining recognised by the lessor). Ind AS 17 was reissued in December 2003 and applies to annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2005. Ind AS 17 will be superseded by IFRS 16 Leases as of 1 January 2019.
