The capital lease began on January 1, 2010when the fair value of the capital lease was $21,776 (with a six-year life). The operating lease began on January 1, 2011 when the fair value of the operating lease at the inception of the lease was $14,921 (with a three-year lease term). Straight-line depreciation is used for all assets. Each lease requires equal annual payments to be made at year-end.
