NEW international rules that will bring leases onto company balance sheets will be published by the IASB next week.
The long-awaited standard, which has been the subject of much wrangling between international and US standard setters, will bring lease assets and liabilities onto company balance sheets.

Politicians in the EU had also raised concerns that the standard was too geared towards the US, and payed little heed to the views of European standard setters.
