*in year of disposition
Total lease expense over a period of 5.5 years:$1,320,660

Conclusion:  Leasing will generate an additional $652,436 ($1,320,660 - $668,224.00) in off balance sheet expenses thereby reducing the tax burden and increasing the company's equity on the balance sheet.

Comment from Schwartz Levitsky Feldman LLP Chartered Accountants (Brett Starkman, C.A.):  Based on the assumption that the FF&E are Class 8 assets under The Income Tax Act of Canada, the depreciation/CCA (capital cost allowances) as calculated above are correct.
