Scenario 1: Lease Modification to Perform an Early Termination

In this scenario, a 24-month contract is created for one asset. The monthly rent payments are CU 1,000 payable at the end of every day (i.e., arrears payments) on the 15th of the month. The Lessee’s nominal discount rate at the commencement date is 2% per annum.

To set up the contract, the following inputs must be entered during contract inception. For detailed information on the contract inception process, refer to About Contract Inception.

  1. Create the contract and enter the following inputs on the contract Accounting page:
    • Contract Rate: 2.00
    • Compounding Frequency: Monthly
    • 360 Convention: Selected
