Question

On December 31, 2011, Xu Ltd., which uses private enterprise GAAP, entered into an eight-year lease agreement for a conveyor machine. Annual lease payments are $28,500 at the beginning of each lease year, which ends December 31, and Xu made the first payment on January 1, 2012. At the end of the lease, the machine will revert to the lessor. However, conveyor machines are only expected to last for eight years and have no residual value. At the time of the lease agreement, conveyor machines could be purchased for approximately $166,000 cash. Equivalent financing for the machine could have been obtained from Xu’s bank at 10.5%. Xu’s fiscal year coincides with the calendar year and Xu uses straight-line depreciation for its conveyor machines.
