Every once in a while you strike gold. As an Assistant Controller at my firm, this course provided perfect examples of how to effectuate the lease transition (operating vs. financing, IFRS vs. US GAAP, calculating interest expense, what to do with the existing deferred rent liability etc.). Gabe is fantastic and I look forward to taking his other courses.
