With capital leases, the lessee records and asset and related liability rather than rental expense.<br />Operating Lease - This is the typical "Off Balance Sheet" type of lease. It is typically a shorter-term lease and frequently is on equipment where there is a high likelihood of it being raised when the lease ends, such as high-tech equipment, computers, or high-usage copiers. It answers 4 criteria as established by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB):<br />1) Ownership of the property does not automatically transfer to the lessee at the end of the lease term.<br />2) The lease does not contain a bargain purchase option.<br />3) The lease term is less than 75% of the useful life of the equipment.<br />4) The present value of the lease payment is equal to less than 90% of the cost of the equipment.<br />Under this scenario, the payments are an expense and no asset or liability is recorded on the balance sheet. <br />Capital Lease - This is also typically called a finance lease. It is an asset and liability issue and the lease typically has a bargain purchase option of $1.00. Companies who use this type of lease will do so for a variety of reasons, primarily for cash flow management, flexibility, fixed payments, and tax deductibility.<br />Sale/Leaseback - This is a situation where a company has purchased and is using the equipment, which they then sell to a leasing company, who in turn charges rent for the usage. The main reason for doing a sale/leaseback is so that a company, which has recently paid cash for a piece of equipment, realizes that they could have put the cash to better use.<br />Trace Lease - This is for vehicles only. In this lease, the lessee guarantees the lesser they will not suffer a loss on the residual buyout at the end of the lease. Typically these types of leases are done with semi-tractors and trailers.<br />TAX EFFECTS ON LEASE AGREEMENTS <br />Businesses, as well as individuals, have occasion to sign a variety of leases including those for office space, vehicles, office equipment and computer hardware.
