    Chris, your article makes some nice points but you didn’t mention one of the more currently pressing issues with leases–the new balance sheet based accounting rules that CPAs will soon require you take onto your business books. While the rules don’t specifically kick for a couple of years, the negotiation of leases that run more than a couple of years from “today” will potentially affect relationships with co-investors, lenders, etc.

    Cheers!

      You’re absolutely right, Leslie. I’ve started to touch on that in some other posts, but it’s definitely something lessees should be aware of. Thanks for bringing it up!
