Operating Lease

 

LMB leased office space from Akrimax (see Note 7) in Cranford, New Jersey at a monthly rental rate of $2,167 pursuant to an agreement which expired on April 30, 2019. Rent expense for the year ended September 30, 2019 was $56,063.

 

Effective July 1, 2019, Citius entered into a 76-month lease for office space in Cranford, NJ. Rent expense under this agreement for the year ended September 30, 2019 was $57,349.

 

Citius will also pay its proportionate share of real estate taxes and operating expenses in excess of the base year expenses. These costs are considered to be variable lease payments and are not included in the determination of the lease's right-of-use asset or lease liability.

 

The Company identified and assessed the following significant assumptions in recognizing its right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities:

 

  As the Company's current Cranford lease does not provide an implicit rate, the Company estimated the incremental borrowing rate in calculating the present value of the lease payments. The Company has estimated its incremental borrowing rate based on the remaining lease term as of the adoption date.

 

  Since the Company elected to account for each lease component and its associated non-lease components as a single combined component, all contract consideration was allocated to the combined lease component.

 

  The expected lease terms include noncancelable lease periods.

 

The elements of lease expense are as follows:
