Summary

#### Assuming the following, what is the lease receivable on initial recognition?

An asset is leased on the following terms:

• Term: Three years
• Carrying amount: £20,000 receivable in arrears at the end of each of the three years
• Unguaranteed residual value at the end of the lease term: £1500
• Lessor’s initial direct costs £1,335
• Rate implicit in the lease: 3.95%

Lease receivable on initial recognition: £20,000 + £1,335 = £21,335, which includes the lessor’s initial direct costs of entering into the lease.

#### What is the subsequent measurement of the lease receivable?

Lease receivable = Balance at the end of the year - balance at the beginning of the year - interest + lease payment

#### What is the total finance income?

• Gross investment in the lease = minimum lease payments receivable + unguaranteed residual value: £21,600 + £1,500 = £23,100
• Net investment in the lease = the carrying amount of £20,000 + the initial direct costs of £1,335 = £21,335
• The total finance income is the difference between the gross investment of £23,100 and net investment of £21,335 = £1,765

#### Now, assume the lessor classified the lease as an operating lease, how does presentation in the profit and loss statement differ?

The depreciation over three years = carrying amount of the asset (£20,000) + initial direct costs (£1,335) - unguaranteed residual value (£1,500) = £19,835.
