The lessee acquires ownership of the leased asset at the conclusion of the lease The lessee has a bargain purchase option The term of the lease covers the majority of the leased asset’s economic life The present value of minimum lease payments is equivalent to nearly all of the leased asset’s fair value. Chapter 15-57 Lease Criteria IFRS has a fifth indicator of a finance lease that is not specified by US GAAP. Leased assets are of a specialized nature and are only usable by the lessee unless substantial adjustments are made to the asset. Chapter 15-58 Criteria Differences US GAAP specifies that the majority of the leased asset’s economic life is equal to or greater than 75% of the asset’s life. US GAAP defines substantially all of the leased asset’s fair value as 90% of the fair value of the property less any investment tax credit retained by the lessor.
