Gigem It might be a good idea to touch on what a bargain purchase option is in the notes if it is going to be part of the test.
fool It's in the notes: that means the leasse has the option to buy the property at the end of the leasing period for a good price. It's one of 4 conditions.
magicchip land is not amortized, and bargain purchase makes it a capital lease.
johntan1979 That's right, fool.
