Comments: modifying leasing expedient


On July 16, Grant Thornton submitted a comment letter to the FASB staff expressing our support for the Board’s proposal to amend a practical expedient in ASC 842 that permits lessees to use a risk-free rate as the discount rate in classifying, measuring, and recognizing leases.

Currently, the expedient must be applied to all leases if elected. The proposed amendment would permit lessees to make the election by class of underlying asset.
