Elkjøp Nordic leases premises for 400 stores throughout the Nordic region, at a cost of NOK 1 billion per year. This is how the group behind Elgiganten and Elkjøp manages its leases.
From 2016 onward, new IFRS rules mean that lease agreements will be given the same status as investments. This means that future payment liabilities must be recorded as liabilities on the balance sheet, and their utility value must be recorded as assets
