Pronghorn Corporation leased equipment to Larkspur, Inc. on January 1, 2020. The lease agreement called for annual rental payments of $1,179 at the beginning of each year of the 3-year lease. The equipment has an economic useful life of 7 years, a fair value of $8,900, a book value of $6,900, and Pronghorn expects a residual value of $6,400 at the end of the lease term. Pronghorn set the lease payments with the intent of earning a 5% return, though Larkspur is unaware of the rate implicit in the lease and has an incremental borrowing rate of 7%. There is no bargain purchase option, ownership of the lease does not transfer at the end of the lease term, and the asset is not of a specialized nature.
