Problem 1: a) True Financial lease is accounted for as if the asset had been purchased through the use of straight debt. Present value of lease payment is recorded as debt capital on the “right hand side”. Due to the debt equivalent nature of a financial lease, shareholders will require higher return on equity capital to compensate for the risk. b) True Short-term debt is helpful to businesses that are seasonal in nature. Such a business might need a short-term loan to buy inventory well in advance for the season and not be able to repay the loan. Other uses for short-term business loans are to raise working capital to cover temporary deficiencies in funds so company can meet payrolls and other expenses.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
