WHAT IS THE 4 STEP CAPITAL LEASE TEST? 15 SECONDS

purchase option at the end of a lease 75% of assets economic life 95% of the discount cash flows asset transfer at end of lease

bargain purchase 75% of economic life of the asset present value of minimum lease payments is 90% of the price lessee gets to keep asset at maturity

Getterdone is wrong with 95%…supersharpshooter right with 90%

boom and boom

damn! stupid 500 basis points!

the other day i was doing a schweserpro problem about leases the present value of MLP’S turned out to be ~89.5% of the fair market value it turns out i had to switch my BA-II from “end” to “beginning” mode, and it was actually 90% do i always have to do this when calculating PV of MLP’s?

EPS goes up.
