Accounting for Leases by Lessee and Lessor Scupper Farms, the lessee, and Tyrrell Equipment, the lessor, sign a lease agreement on January 1, 2019, that provides for Scupper to lease a cultivator from Tyrrell. The lease terms, provisions, and other related events are as follows:

  • The lease is noncancelable and has a term of 6 years.
  • The annual rentals are $55,000 payable at the beginning of each year.
  • Scupper agrees to pay all executory costs directly to a third party, which are expected to be $1,100 annually, including property taxes of $500, insurance of $350, and maintenance of $250. These costs are paid each year on November 1.
  • The cultivator has an estimated economic life of 6 years.
  • Scupper guarantees a residual value of $60,000 at the end of 6 years. Scupper believes it is probable that it will pay $15,000 cash as a result of this guarantee.
  • The interest rate implicit in the lease is 14%, which is known by Scupper.
  • Scupper’s incremental borrowing rate is 15%, and it uses the sum-of-the years’ digits method to record depreciation on similar equipment.
  • The cost of the cultivator is $250,000.00. The fair value of the cultivator to Tyrrell is $271,154.68.
  • The lessor incurs no material initial direct costs.
  • Tyrell expects to collect all lease payments from Scupper.

Lease: Lease is a contractual agreement whereby the right to use an asset for a particular period of time is provided by the owner of the asset to the user of the asset. The owner, who possesses the asset, is termed as ‘Lessor’ and user, to whom the right is transferred to, is termed as ‘Lessee’.

Finance leases: In finance lease all the ownership risks and responsibilities are transferred from the lessor to the lessee.
