CFA Practice Question

American Insurance Company leases trucks to trucking companies. The leases both transfer property rights to the lessees and give the insurance company a reasonably accurate estimate of the amount and collectability of the future cash inflows. What type of leases are these?

A. Operating lease
B. Sales-type lease
C. Direct financing lease
Correct Answer: C

Under these conditions American Insurance Company accounts for the leases as direct financing leases because American Insurance Company is a financial institution.

Nightsurfer Good comment Done.
thekobe Direct Financing with an intermediary
johntan1979 The keywords as to why direct financing, not sales type lease is "American Insurance Company" = financial institution
johntan1979 And like what Done said, they don't manufacture the trucks.

Read the notes: Main difference between direct financing and sales type is the absence/presence of manufacturer's or dealer's profit
