Loan/Lease Interest Calculator Problem

Hi there,

I've been searching google high and low for a spreadsheet that can help me with an analysis I'm trying to run. I manage a golf course and every few years, I have to turnover our power cart fleet. It's always a question of how many carts we can afford based on our budget. So I was hoping to find a Loan/Lease Calculator that can calculate monthly payments. Here's the catch. Many leasing companies offer us a 6 on/6 off monthly payment structure as we are a very seasonal golf course. I'm not sure how I would adjust the 'stock' interest calculator to take the 6 on/6 off into account.

Any thoughts would be helpful.
 

Excel Facts

Why are there 1,048,576 rows in Excel?
The Excel team increased the size of the grid in 2007. There are 2^20 rows and 2^14 columns for a total of 17 billion cells.

Can you give an example of what you already have?

For my edification, could explain the terms of the lease agreement in more detail?

For example:
Lease value: 500,000
Term: 4 years
Annual interest rate: 4%
Residual value: 50,000 (value at end of lease)
Lease date: 4/1/2015 (when equipment is transferred to lessee)
1st payment date: 4/1/2015

Typically, the first payment is due when the equipment is transferred to the lessee. So the two dates might seem redundant. But....

I am not sure what "6 on, 6 off" means. Perhaps 6 months of payments followed by 6 months accruing interest without payments. Or perhaps interest-only payments during the latter 6 months.
