“right to use asset” account for the same net effect on  the balance sheet Depreciation decreases slightly from $27,949 to  $27,352 for the last four years of the lease

The capitalized value Notice that in both the increased and decreased  lease term situations, the originally anticipated  “value” of the leased asset changes abruptly by a  substantial amount Is this logical?   Whether or not this makes sense, the liability balance  MUST change!

Worst Case Scenario For those wanting to cook the books: Instead of the example lease, write the contract for  seven one-year renewal options at CU 35,000 per year Each year, decide that the remaining lease term is just  one more year Use the highest possible incremental borrowing rate to  keep the liability at the lowest possible number  In the example on next slide, I left it at 8% but if one could argue for 9% or 10%, the liability would be even smaller!

Too complicated? Think about a typical rent situation for retail space.   Rent is a fixed amount PLUS a percentage of sales. Since it is impossible to predict the future with  accuracy, it is likely that the liability account would  have to be revised EVERY reporting date! This is quite complicated because it theoretically  affects depreciation expense The other issue is whether to run the difference in  liability (gain or loss) through the income statement or  use some other technique

    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.
