▪ The right-of-use asset at the amount of the financial obligation to make rental payments
▪ A lessee shall evaluate the lease periods by estimating the chances of renew for each possible term
▪ A lessee shall evaluate or calculate the present value of lease payments

Management needs to take into consideration that the fair value approach fluctuates based on traffic and the popularity of the location. For a more stable approach management might want to consider the cost model method in determining the amounts.
