Leases similar to installment purchases are capitalized
Major reasons why a company may become involved in leasing to other companies are

Lease 1 does not contain a bargain purchase option, but the lease term is equal to 90% of the estimated economic life of the leased property. Lease 2 does not transfer ownership of the property to the lessee by the end of the lease term, but the lease term is equal to 75% of the estimat...
