From the Paper:

"The type of leasing plan is of utmost importance. There are many aspects to consider when negotiating the lease. One is the cost of exiting the lease early. Another is the way in which the lease will affect the tax position of the partnership. The types of lease available are the Fair Market Value lease (FMV), which offers the lowest monthly payment and can be written off 100% as an expense. Another is the one-dollar buyout lease, which can be utilized if the club plans to purchase the equipment at the end of the lease. There is also the 10% purchase option, which has a lower monthly payment than the $1 buyout but a more expensive purchase at the end of the lease. A 10% security deposit plan is a variation on this theme, yielding low monthly payments but a more expensive purchase. It is important also to build in exit terms in case the business needs to be unwound. Otherwise, the partners will be personally liable for the lease payments (Club Management, 2006)."
