Assignment 2: Lease vs. Buy

Your employer, Barnaby Well Company, is considering the acquisition of a new drill truck and your boss has asked you to evaluate the decision that she has made to buy the truck.  The truck has a purchase price of \$60,000 and a useful life of 4 years and a zero salvage value.  Barnaby can borrow to buy the truck for \$60,000 or lease the truck for \$15,000 for 4 years, paid at the beginning of each year.

If debt is used to buy the truck, Barnaby can borrow at 8% annual interest, with payments at the end of each year. The marginal tax rate for the firm is 40%.  The asset is classified as a 3-year cost recovery asset for depreciation purposes.  According to the current tax laws, Barnaby is allowed to use MACRS depreciation with 30% rate for year one, 45% for year two, 20% for year three and 5% for year four.  There will be no salvage value at the end of the fourth year.
