Abstract [sv]

The background for this essay is the problems associated with the previous leasing standard IAS 17, and the implementation of the new, IFRS 16. During the appliance of IAS 17 leasing was either classified as operating- or finance leasing. Here the focus is whether there are similarities in the lease contract to a repayment purchase or not. For finance leases there are similarities to a purchase of the asset, where the lessee shall report both the asset and liability in the balance sheet. Simultaneously neither the asset or liability is reported in the balance sheet when establishing operating leases.The previous standard IAS 17 has received great criticism for allowing the operating leases to be outside the company's accounting, because they have meant that the transparency and reliability of the reported information has been inadequate. Companies that establish operating leases results in misleading key ratios, and may consequently therefore underestimate their financial risks associated with the leased asset. A lower debt ratio may be related to a higher debt financing of the balance sheet.The study is conducted to examine the potential effects the implementation of IFRS 16 has on different industries in Sweden, and how it will affect the key ratios EBITDA, debt, leverage and solidity. Relevant previous literature concerning potential effects in industries will be presented in the theoretical section. The result of the study will there after be presented and analyzed with previous scientific research.

Abstract [sv]

Bakgrunden till denna uppsats är problemen i samband med den tidigare leasingstandarden IAS 17 och införandet av det nya IFRS 16. Under tillämpningen av IAS 17 klassificerades leasingavtal som antingen operationell eller finansiella. Klassificeringen handlar om det finns likheter i hyreskontraktet till ett återbetalningsköp eller ej. För finansiella leasingavtal finns det likheter till ett köp av tillgången, där leasetagaren ska redovisa både tillgång och skuld i balansräkningen. Samtidigt redovisas varken tillgång eller skuld i balansräkningen vid upprättandet av operationella leasingavtal. Den tidigare standarden IAS 17 har fått stor kritik för att de operationella leasingavtalen tillåts vara utanför bolagets bokföring, det har inneburit att insynen och tillförlitligheten hos den rapporterade informationen har varit otillräcklig. Operationella leasingavtal leder till vilseledande nyckeltal och att företagen därmed kan underskatta deras finansiella risker i samband med den hyrda tillgången. En lägre skuldkvot kan vara relaterad till en högre skuldfinansiering från balansräkningen. Studien genomförs för att undersöka de potentiella effekter som IFRS 16 har på olika branscher i Sverige, och hur införandet påverkar nyckeltalen EBITDA, skuldsättning, skuldsättningsgrad och soliditet. Relevant tidigare litteratur om de potentiella effekterna inom branscherna kommer att presenteras i det teoretiska avsnittet. Resultatet av studien kommer därefter att presenteras och analyseras med tidigare vetenskaplig forskning.
