The lease term is 5 years and requires equal rental payments of $31,000 at the beginning of each year. The equipment has a fair value at the commencement of the lease of $150,000, an estimated useful life of 8 years, and a guaranteed residual value at the end of the lease of $15,500. Photon set the annual rental to earn a rate of return of 6%, and this fact is known to Callaway.
