Rancour Ltd., which uses private enterprise GAAP, recently expanded its operations into an adjoining municipality and, on March 30, 2011, signed a 15-year lease with its Municipal Industrial Commission (MIC). The property has a total fair value of $150,000 on March 30, 2011, with one third of the amount attributable to the land and two thirds to the building. The land is expected to double in value over the next 15 years, while the building will depreciate by 60%. The lease includes a purchase option at the end of the lease that allows Rancour to receive title to the property for a payment of $90,000.
Rancour is required to make rental payments of $10,000 annually, with the first payment due March 30, 2011. The MIC’s implicit interest rate, known to all, is 7%. The building’s economic life is estimated at 20 years, at which time it will have a small residual value of $10,000.
(a) Prepare the entries required by Rancour on the signing of the lease and the payment of the first lease payment.
