Basic Question 1 of 8

Norquist Company is planning to lease a machine from Smith Company for 3 years. The machine has an estimated life of 5 years. The lease will not transfer the machine's ownership to Norquist at the end of the lease, nor does the lease contain a bargain purchase option. The present value of the minimum lease payments is less than 90% of the machine's fair value. Norquist should account for the lease as a capital lease. True or False?
