Boxx Corporation is considering the acquisition of new equipment. The equipment can be purchased from an overseas supplier for $6,500. The freight and installation costs for the equipment are $615. If purchased, annual repairs and maintenance are estimated to be $445 per year over the five-year useful life of the equipment. Alternatively, Boxx can lease the equipment from a domestic supplier for $1,850 per year for five years, with no additional costs.

Required:

  1. Prepare a differential analysis to determine whether Boxx should lease (Alternative 1) or purchase (Alternative 2) the equipment.
  2. Indicate specifically the company should lease or buy the equipment after completing the analysis. Explain. Hint: This is a “lease or buy” decision, which must be analyzed from the perspective of the equipment user as opposed to the equipment owner.
