Cost of equipment is $200.00. Assume that Reynolds’s tax rate is 40% and the equipment’s depreciation would be $100 per year. If the company leased the asset on a 2-year lease, the payment would be $110 at the beginning of each year. If Reynolds borrowed and bought, the bank would charge 10% interest on the loan. In either case, the equipment is worth noth- ing after 2 years and will be discarded. Should Reynolds lease or buy the equipment?
