Reporting Requirements for Annual Financial Reports of State Agencies and Universities

Capital Assets

Leased Property

Per GASB 62 paragraph 213, a capital lease must meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • The lease transfers ownership of the property to the lessee by the end of the lease term.
  • The lease contains a bargain purchase option.
  • The lease term equals 75 percent or more of the estimated economic life of the leased property.
  • The present value of the minimum lease payments at the inception of the lease, excluding executory costs, equals at least 90 percent of the fair value of the leased property.

In addition to the above criteria, the cost of the underlying leased asset must meet the standard capitalization thresholds in order to record the lease as a capital lease. If a lease does not meet any of the above criteria or if the cost of the underlying leased assets does not meet the standard capitalization threshold, record the lease as an operating lease.

For more information, see Capital Leases.
