On January 1, 2013, Somerville Corporation sold a used truck to Cornelius Company and accepted a $28,000 non-interest-bearing note due January 1, 2016. Somerville carried the truck on its books at a cost of $30,000 and a current book value of $23,000. Neither the fair value of the truck nor the note was available at the time of the sale; however, Cornelius's incremental borrowing rate was 12%.
