Lease payments were to be made quarterly beginning on January 1, 2017. The terms of the lease allow Nicomekl Novelties to purchase the van at the end of the lease term for a payment of $20,000 which is the estimated fair value of the vehicle at the end of the lease term. The residual value of the vehicle is estimated to be $5,000 at the end of its useful life of ten years. The implicit rate of the lease is 8% per annum (2% per quarter) and is known to Nicomekl.  Both companies amortize all capital assets using the straight-line method.
