On 1 July 20x2, Large Mart signs a seven (7) year lease contract for a photocopier for its office. At the end of the lease period Large Mart will have the option to purchase the photocopier for \$500 (but the expected fair value of the photocopier at the end of the lease term is \$1,000). Large Mart is able to cancel the lease contract after paying 85% of the outstanding lease payments as a fine. Large Mart expects that the useful life of the photocopier is eight (8) years and all items in the Machinery/Equipment Account of Large Mart are depreciated using the sums-of-digits method. The photocopier is expected to have a residual value of \$50 at the end of its useful life.

Mart will have the option to purchase the photocopier for \$500

(but the expected fair value of the photocopier at the end of the

payments: \$10,000 when the contract is signed (1 July 20x2), and

\$1,000 at the end of each year (30 June) during the lease term. The

Large Mart accounting department has determined that the interest

rate implicit in the lease is 12%, and that the market price of the

photocopier at the time the lease contract is signed is equal to

\$15,000.
