At the end of 2012, a manufacturer sells machinery to a customer for $90,000. $30,000 is paid immediately, and the customer signs a promissory note for the remainder. The note specifies that another $30,000 is to be paid at the end of 2013, and the final $30,000 is to be paid at the end of 2014.
A rate of 6% per year would normally be charged for this type of financing. However, the manufacturer provides free financing; no interest is charged.
