Amy is trying to decide if she should buy a car or lease the same car. The car salesman has told her that she can buy the car for $27,000. She will need a down payment of $2,700. The remainder will be financed with a loan. It will cost her 4.5% compounded semi-annually. She will make 60 monthly payments at the end of each month. If she leases the car, Amy will not put any money down. However, she will be required to pay $12,500 at the end of the lease. Amy will make 60 monthly lease payments of $250. The lease payments will be made at the beginning of each month. Assume the appropriate interest rate is 7.3% compounded semi-annually.

a) Draw two detailed timelines and label all components displaying the details of leasing and buying the car. b) What are the (1) effective annual rates (EAR) and the (2) effective periodic rates (EPR) of the (i) bank loan rate and (ii) the lease rate? c) What is the present value of the car if Amy buys the car as opposed to leasing? What is the present value if Amy leases the car as opposed to buying? d) If Amy had the option to make 48 monthly payments to buy or lease the car, what would be the new monthly loan payments and the monthly lease payments? e) Using the information from part c) and d), summarize if Amy should buy or lease the car under the 48 month plan or the 60 month plan.

Lease vs. Buy (Equipment/Real Estate)

...Contents Lease Vs. Buy Laid in Excel Spreadsheet1 Advantages to Lease Vs. Buy 2 Advantages of Using a Longer Time Table Rather Than Shorter 3 Real Estate Depreciation 4 Works Cited………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….……….5 Excel Spreadsheet Showing Table and Work. Advantages of Lease Vs. Buy The decision to lease or buy equipment or real estate is very important one. One of the most obvious draw backs to leasing versus buying is that, at the end of the lease, the organization does not own the equipment or real estate. The primary advantage to leasing is that it conserves cash for other business operations. Additionally, leasing allows the organization to expense some of the maintanence costs and provides superior tax benefits. Leasing allows for the organization to more efficiently keep up with technology advantages. In reference to real estate, the lease offers the option to change locations if necessary. Moreover, many of the maintenance costs fall on the owner and not the leaser. (Park, 2011) Advantages of Using a Longer Time Table Rather Than Shorter Particularly with real estate investments, a longer period than the four years used in this scenario might prove to be more accurate. While the real estate market is not particularly good now, a change in that area might make the initial investment actually have returns. The cyclical nature of this particular market may contribute to a more favorable outcome in the lease versus buy......

Capital Leases and Operating Leases

...3303 | CAPITAL LEASE vs. OPERATING LEASE | | Dr. Serge Ryno ACCT 3303 December 2, 2011 Capital Lease vs. Operating Lease Firms often choose to lease long-term assets rather than buy them for a variety of reasons including the tax benefits that are greater to the lessor than the lessees and leases offer more flexibility in terms of adjusting to changes in technology and capacity needs. Lease payments create the same kind of obligation that interest payments on debt create, and have to be viewed in a similar light. If a firm is allowed to lease a significant portion of its assets and keep it off its financial statements, an examination of the statements will give a very misleading view of the company's financial strength. Consequently, accounting rules have been devised to force firms to reveal the extent of their lease obligations on their books. There are two ways of accounting for leases. In an operating lease, the lessor (or owner) transfers only the right to use the property to the lessee. At the end of the lease period, the lessee returns the property to the lessor. Since the lessee does not assume the risk of ownership, the lease expense is treated as an operating expense in the income statement and the lease does not affect the balance sheet. In an operating lease, a company pays a periodic fee for the use of some benefit. The benefit can be tangible, such as office space, or intangible, such as a patent. The company acquiring the lease takes no......

Buy vs Lease

...When one is in the process of purchasing a car there are several factors that must be considered before doing so. These factors will be discussed throughout this paper. When one decides what kind of car and how much one can afford one should then decide if leasing or buying would be better for him or her. There are several options that can be considered in making this decision. The auto calculator will help in making this decision. One will put all of the information about the vehicle in the calculator to determine which would be best for him or her at this time. When determining if leasing a vehicle would be best, one would need the information about the cost of the lease, how long the lease if for, and the terms of the lease. One will need to negotiate the terms of the lease to make it better for him or her. After he or she has come up with those figures one should then consider the options of buying a car. To determine if buying a car is best he or she should consider the buying price, discuss the terms of the contract, and decide how the car would be financed and how long it would be financed for. After all of this information has been put into the auto calculator one should then be able to determine which option would be best for him or her. The auto calculator make recommendations about which option would save the most money over the time period allotted. I have always thought that buying was the best option for purchasing a car, but that is not always what...

...appropriate risk evaluations of a firms statement of financial position”’. Leases are a common financial tool used by many businesses and individuals on a daily basis to transfer the ownership of many different types of assets. Creditors are largely involved with many leases and company balance sheets as they are always interested in making valued judgements of their financial position with the current leasing disclosure requirements providing some discrepancies for creditors in making these risk evaluations. These issues surrounding the treatment and disclosure of leases provide the need for rigorous speculation into the accounting treatment and classification of the different types of leases so that the users of financial statements are provided with a clear view of a firm’s financial position and performance. With the relative ease in which a company can manipulate the classification of their leases, it makes it hard for creditors to make valued judgements of a company’s balance sheet. The current guidelines of AASB 117 require a company to classify its leases as either a finance lease or an operating lease. Only finance leases are required to be disclosed on a company’s statement of financial position with operating leases being excluded. This is one potential issue arising for creditors as the balance sheet might therefore be an unreliable measure of a company’s financial position. Operating leases are a form of off-balance sheet reporting that “potentially enhances......

...shows that many of them have strong participation in lease financing. However, though leasing is considered as an alternative mode of long term lending, NBFIs contribution to total long term financing is still very small in amount. As on December 31, 2001 total financing of 25 licensed NBFIs stood Tk. 2,1240.7 million (NBFIs-FRs). According to the statistics of BB, 2.85 percent of the outstanding amounts of loans//leases was found classified as bad debt as on June 30, 2001 (BB, 2002) Page 8 3.2 NBFIs Performance in Leasing We discuss NBFIs performance in leasing specially in this section because of its some imposing features though leasing are analyzed under the head of long term financing in this paper for many times. One important feature is that the leasing industries in Bangladesh have grown significantly within the last 10 years. Competition among the leasing industries has been intensified and this competition in leasing business does not come only from the NBFIs but also from BFIs. Many commercial banks and other financial institutions like ICB (Investment Corporation of Bangladesh) are participating in the leasing business. The commercial banks are doing lease business as EZARA under Section 7 DA(4) of the Bank Companies Act 1991. Commercial banks are also taking advantage of their low costs of fund than the leasing companies. In this situation, leasing companies have an argument that if banks are allowed to do lease business, so they should be permitted to do......

...Leases: Practical implications of the new Leases Standard Introduction The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) (the Boards) are working together to improve the accounting for leases. In an effort to achieve this objective, the Boards reached a common ground that a customer (lessee) leasing assets should recognise assets and liabilities arising from those leases, including leases that are off balance sheet today. The Boards jointly published a revised Exposure Draft Leases (the 2013 ED) in May 2013. The Boards received extensive feedback on their proposals, and have heard a broad range of views. Since March 2014 the Boards have re-deliberated on nearly all aspects of the project. They will decide upon the effective date of the new Leases Standard in the next few months. The IASB has indicated that it has plans to issue the new Leases Standard before the end of 2015. The lessee accounting model developed The model is from the view that, at the inception of a lease, the lessee obtains the right to use an asset for a period of time and has an obligation to pay for that right. Therefore, it requires that for all leases, the lessee should: * recognise lease assets and liabilities on the balance sheet, initially measured at the present value of unavoidable lease payments; * recognise amortisation of lease assets and interest on lease liabilities over the lease term; and * separate the total amount of cash paid......

Lease vs Buy

...No. 1339 Information Sheet August 2001 Should I Lease or Buy? Steven W. Martin, Fred Cooke, Jr., David Parvin, and Scott Stiles I NTRODUCTION For many farms, machinery expense is the largest single production expense (Massey). Under current farm financial conditions, producers must search every avenue for opportunities to minimize costs and maximize returns. Producers have three basic options for meeting machinery needs: purchase the needed equipment, lease the needed equipment, or custom hire. Custom hire may work well for certain jobs, but often does not allow the amount of control many operations require. Like purchasing, leasing allows the producer to maintain control of the timeliness and quality of the work conducted on his or her farming operation. Therefore producers should evaluate leasing versus purchasing based on the economic opportunities that each provides. OVERVIEW Most leases consist of four basic components: • Periodic payment • Length of lease • Amount of use (hours, miles, etc.) • Residual Under a standard lease agreement, the lessee (farmer) agrees to pay the lessor (bank, credit corporation, dealer, etc.) a specified amount (payment) at certain intervals over a certain length of time. Three-year leases with annual payments are very common, but any arrangement is possible. The lease will generally specify the amount of annual use permitted under the base contract. Tractor leases often range from 300 to 1200 hours of annual use. The amount...

...Sable sells and leases equipment to its customers. * Sable entered into a contract with Buildit Co. leasing a bulldozer for construction. * The lease term is 10 years and the economic and useful life of the bulldozer is 15 years. * Annual lease payments due at the end of every year will be $16,000. * Buildit is responsible for maintenance, insurance, and tax payments arising from the lease. * The residual value of the bulldozer at the end of the lease term is estimated at $24,000, although no guarantee of the residual value. * Lease does not transfer ownership of the asset at the end of the lease. * The bulldozer cost Sable $100,000 to manufacture and sells for $135,000. * Sable has recently been selling the bulldozer for $125,000 because of economic situations. * Implicit rate on $135,000 fair value is 5.45%. * Implicit rate on $125,000 fair value is 6.93%. * Payments are expected to be collected when due. Identification of Issues and Alternatives: The major question at hand in this case is whether or not the lease should be classified as a sales-type lease, a direct financing lease, a leveraged lease, or an operating lease. If the lease meets any of the criteria for being a capital lease and meets the extra required criteria for each classification then it is one of the first three, and if not then it is an operating lease. The determination of the type of lease will affect how the lease is classified......

Lease lease can be recognized. The accounting method for a finance lease and for an operating lease is different. In the leases-joint project of IASB and FASB, opinions about accounting method of lessee divided under two accounting systems. FASB uses a dual approach and IFRS uses a single approach for lessee accounting. Under the single approach, a lessee will recognize all leases as “Type A” leases, which means recognize amortization of the right-of-use (ROU) asset separately from interest on the lease liability. Under IFRS, there are exemption of small-ticket leases and short-term leases for the accounting of lessee. For small-ticket leases, there is no clear benchmark about the classification of “small”. But short-term leases are leases that have leasing term of 12 months or less. Financial reports need to disclose more information weighing the cost. Considering this exemption is for the convenience of companies with insignificant leases, we design the line of 1% of total asset amount. As far as we concerned, comparing to the time limit, the proportion can reflect more precisely the impact on the company. Besides, for a small corporation, making an option for a lease whether to be finance lease or operating lease will cause a huge change of revenue of this year. In other words, we propose a new criterial for defining small assets and small-ticket leases. Therefore, the new standard is aligned with IASB. Scope The standard will be applied in accounting for leases......

...Changes to Accounting Standards for Leases Who is likely to be affected? Businesses which are lessees or lessors of assets and account for lease transactions using a leasing accounting standard which changes on or after 1 January 2011. General description of the measure Current accounting standards are International Accounting Standards (IAS) and UK Generally Accepted Accounting Practice (UK GAAP). Changes to the IAS lease accounting standard are expected during 2011, and changes to UK GAAP might follow in 2013. Legislation will be introduced in Finance Bill 2011 to ensure continuity of tax treatment for lease transactions for businesses which begin to account for the transactions under new accounting standards, expected to be introduced from 2011. The measure will require tax profits and losses to continue to be calculated as if the changes to lease accounting standards had not taken place. Policy objective The measure will ensure that existing tax rules that rely on accounting classifications of leases as operating or finance leases, and the accounting treatment of lease transactions, continue to operate in the way they currently do. The objectives are to: • • ensure that lessors and lessees will be neither disadvantaged nor advantaged by the proposed accounting changes; remove uncertainty for businesses about the future tax treatment of leasing contracts, arising from uncertainty about future lease accounting standards and their interaction with current tax......
