Question: CHL Corporation manufactures specialty equipment with an estimated economic life

CHL Corporation manufactures specialty equipment with an estimated economic life of 12 years and leases it to Provincial Airlines Corp. for a period of 10 years. Both CHL and Provincial Airlines follow private enterprise GAAP. The equipment’s normal selling price is $210,482 and its unguaranteed residual value at the end of the lease term is estimated to be $15,000. Provincial Airlines will pay annual payments of $25,000 at the beginning of each year and all maintenance, insurance, and taxes. CHL incurred costs of $105,000 in manufacturing the equipment and $7,000 in negotiating and closing the lease. CHL has determined that the collectibility of the lease payments is reasonably predictable, that no additional costs will be incurred, and that the implicit interest rate is 8%.
