Are you looking for a more reliable way to account for your leases?
Are you tired of using calculators and spreadsheets to perform the time-consuming and often confusing calculations required to comply with FAS 13/ASC 840 (Accounting for Leases) or IAS 17 (Leases)?
Concerned about whether your current methods will pass Sarbanes-Oxley compliance review?
Do you find it hard to understand the FAS 13 or IAS 17 standard?
Do you want to get ready for the new lease accounting standard (ASC 842/IFRS 16) recently released by the FASB & IASB, which includes capitalizing all existing operating leases?
Then discover the many benefits of using EZLeaseTM, the lease accounting system for lessees or lessors. It eliminates the complexity and confusion associated with generating lease accounting journal entries by hand and requires no prior knowledge of the standards.

Weighted average term and discount rate
Straight-lining of rents for operating leases with scheduled rent increases (when desired)
Additions, early terminations, and normal termination adjustments calculated automatically
Catch-up accounting: A lease that started prior to the current reporting period can be added to the database with a current booking date so that prior reports are unaffected
Revisions affect only future reporting; originally booked information kept for historical reporting
