Question

The following facts pertain to a noncancelable lease agreement between Alschuler Leasing Company and McKee Electronics, a lessee, for a computer system.
Inception date ........... October 1, 2014
Lease term ................ 6 years
Economic life of leased equipment ..... 6 years
Fair value of asset at October 1, 2014 ... $300,383
Residual value at end of lease term ...... –0–
Lessor’s implicit rate ............ 10%
Lessee’s incremental borrowing rate ...... 10%
Annual lease payment due at the beginning of
each year, beginning with October 1, 2014 ... $62,700

The collectibility of the lease payments is reasonably predictable, and there are no important uncertainties surrounding the costs yet to be incurred by the lessor. The lessee assumes responsibility for all executor costs, which amount to $5,500 per year and are to be paid each October 1, beginning October 1, 2014. (This $5,500 is not included in the rental payment of $62,700.) The asset will revert to the lessor at the end of the lease term. The straight-line depreciation method is used for all equipment.
The following amortization schedule has been prepared correctly for use by both the lessor and the lessee in accounting for this lease. The lease is to be accounted for properly as a capital lease by the lessee and as a direct-financing lease by the lessor.
