Question

The following facts pertain to a non-cancellable lease agreement between Woodhouse Leasing Corporation and McKee Electronics Ltd., a lessee, for a computer system:
The collectibility of the lease payments is reasonably predictable, and there are no important uncertainties about costs that have not yet been incurred by the lessor. McKee Electronics Ltd., the lessee, assumes responsibility for all executory costs, which amount to $2,500 per year and are to be paid each October 1, beginning October 1, 2011. (This $2,500 is not included in the rental payment of $30,500.) The asset will revert to the lessor at the end of the lease term. The straightline depreciation method is used for all equipment.
The following amortization schedule for the lease obligation has been prepared correctly for use by both the lessor and the lessee in accounting for this lease using private enterprise GAAP. The lease is accounted for properly as a capital lease by the lessee and as a direct financing lease by the lessor.
