when a lessor enters a sales type lease, a net-investment is recorded on the balance sheet as an asset and is capitalized as time passes. my question is - when a entry for an asset is recorded at the inception on the balance sheet, what is the corresponding entry added to the liabilities/equity? or where is the amount added. since the equation has to be balanced: A = L + E, assuming a single asset that the lessor enters in the sales type lease: every year it has to reduce the position i.e. in yr1 NetInvestment (Asset) = A in yr2 NetInvestment (Asset) = A - currentportion the “currentportion”: is it recorded in equity on RHS?? this may be related to accounting but can anyone explain this ?
