During the October meeting, the two Boards again discussed the definition of a lease. The Boards defined the lessor’s substantive right to substitute the asset, and clarified when a lessee has the right to direct the use of the asset (the power to decide how and for what purpose the asset is used, including the right to change the way the asset is used throughout the period of use), if neither the lessor nor the lessee controls how and for what purpose the asset is used throughout the period of use.
