Definition

Capital lease obligations are the amount due for long-term asset lease agreements that are nearly equivalent to asset purchases. Capital lease obligations are installment payments that constitute a payment of principal plus interest for the capital lease. The current portion of a capital lease obligation is the portion of a long-term capital lease that is due over the next year.


Explanation

Under US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), a capital lease is essentially equivalent to a purchase by the lessee if it meets the following criteria:

1. Ownership of the asset is transferred to the lessee at the end of the lease term;
2. The lease contains a bargain purchase option to buy the equipment at less than fair market value;
3. The lease term equals or exceeds 75% of the asset's estimated useful life;
4. The present value of the lease payments equals or exceeds 90% of the total original cost of the equipment.
