Because the leasing project is a joint project between the IASB and FASB, the working group is an international group serving both Boards. The composition of the working group reflects the diversity and breadth of interest in this area, and ensures that there is a satisfactory balance of perspectives.
The working group is comprised of individuals from a variety of backgrounds – preparers, auditors and users of financial statements, subject-matter experts, and others.
In July the IASB and the FASB established a joint working group for the project to seek the views of both users and preparers of financial statements as the project progresses. The first working group meeting was held in February 2007.
