What are some of the various lease options?

“…the FASB outlined specific criteria to help classify leases as either capital or operating leases” (Schroeder, Clark, & Cathey, 2005, p. 419). Capital lease is displayed as long term obligation in balance sheet. The installment payment is segregated under two areas, the first is interest, and other is adjustments for principal amount. For this break up, an amortization table is made. The table assists the organization in deciding the sum of interest expenditures to be charged to income statement. Lessee has the legal right to charge wear and tear on the leased property. Operating lease is a off balance sheet liability since it is not displayed as liability in the balance sheet, instead it is displayed below the headings of commitments as foot note. In operating lease lessee can display the complete installment amount below the heading of expenditures and can demand tax benefit. However the lesser must display whole installment below the heading of income, for that reason he is eligible to charge wear and tear on the rented property. When would you use one option over the others? What could be the financial impact of this decision? There are a few benefits as well as drawbacks pertaining to leases.

But, in case market conditions drop in a way that the fixed cost of a lease retreats, the organization is still accountable for the initial amount set forth in the leasing contract.

I may just require a particular machine for one task. if I see where I have required to lease a particular machine many times. What is the financial impact of this decision? Once again. a purchase may be much better.The judgment to rent or buy significantly depends upon requirement as well as financial position. while finishing a building job. in case I have a long-term requirement.
