Requirement 1 Note: Because exercise of the option appears at the inception of the lease to be reasonably assured, payment of the option price ($6,000) is expected to occur when the option becomes exercisable (at the end of the eighth quarter). Also, the lease contract specifies that the BPO becomes exercisable before the designated lease term ends. Since a BPO is expected to be exercised, the lease term ends for accounting purposes when the option becomes exercisable (after two years of the three-year lease term).

-------------------------------------------------

Present value of quarterly lease payments ($3,000 x 7.23028**) $21,691

-------------------------------------------------

Plus: Present value of the BPO price ($6,000 x .78941*) 4,736

-------------------------------------------------

Present value of minimum lease payments $26,427

-------------------------------------------------

* present value of $1: n=8, i=3%

-------------------------------------------------

** present value of an annuity due of $1: n=8, i=3%

-------------------------------------------------

“Selling price” $26,427 minus Truck’s cost (25,000) equals Dealer’s profit $ 1,427

Problem 15-15 (continued)

-------------------------------------------------

Not required in the problem, but helpful to see that the present value calculation is precisely the reverse of the lessor’s calculation of quarterly payments:

-------------------------------------------------

Amount to be recovered (fair value) $26,427

Less: Present value of the BPO price ($6,000 x .78941*) (4,736)

-------------------------------------------------

Amount to be recovered through quarterly lease payments $21,691

Requirement 3 Since both use the same discount rate, the amortization schedule for the lessee and lessor is the same:
