Lease or buy, Financial Accounting

La Favorite Pastry Shop has been in business since 1985 and started with a large commercial
oven that was built in 1955. Max, the owner is debating whether or not to purchase a new oven at
a cost of $125,000 with bank financing at 7%, or he can choose to lease the oven over a 15 year
period with annual lease payments of $13,000 with the first payment due on inception of the
lease. In either case, Max expects the new oven to have a useful life of 15 years. The company’s
marginal tax rate is 23%, the asset is a class 30 asset with a CCA rate of 30%.
Max has asked you, a good friend and a CMA to help assess the alternatives.
Determine whether or not the machine should be purchased or leased. You must recommend a
clear alternative and support your recommendation quantitatively and qualitatively by including
advantages/disadvantages of each.
