Culver Corporation leased equipment to Splish Brothers, Inc. on January 1, 2017. The lease agreement called for annual rental payments of $1,135 at the beginning of each year of the 3-year lease. The equipment has an economic useful life of 7 years, a fair value of $9,500, a book value of $7,500, and Culver expects a residual value of $7,000 at the end of the lease term. Culver set the lease payments with the intent of earning a 4% return, though Splish Brothers is unaware of the rate implicit in the lease and has an incremental borrowing rate of 6%. There is no bargain purchase option, ownership of the lease does not transfer at the end of the lease term, and the asset is not of a specialized nature.
