Accounting For A Lease Agreement

We now have all the information we need to record the first log entry: as documented above, the current value of minimum lease payments is $15,292.65; Thus, the first log entry for the lender`s registration is at least the beginning: part of the payment made by the lessee is against interest charges, part of it concerns the non-leasing element of maintenance costs, while the remaining balance is used to reduce financial leasing liabilities.
