Note 8. Leases
Operating Leases
Under Topic 842, a contract is a lease, or contains a lease, if the contract conveys the right to control the use of identified property, plant, or equipment (an identified asset) for a period of time in exchange for consideration. To determine whether a contract conveys the right to control the use of an identified asset for a period of time, an entity shall assess whether, throughout the period of use, the entity has both of the following: (a) the right to obtain substantially all of the economic benefits from use of the identified asset; and (b) the right to direct the use of the identified asset.
The Company leases office facilities under operating leases. Our principle executive office in New York City is under a month to month arrangement. The Company’s office lease has a remaining lease of less than one year. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet; the Company recognizes lease expense for these leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term. As a practical expedient, the Company elected, for all office and facility leases, not to separate nonlease components (e.g., common-area maintenance costs) from lease components (e.g., fixed payments including rent) and instead to account for each separate lease component and its associated non-lease components as a single lease component. The Company uses its incremental borrowing rate for purposes of discounting lease payments.
Rent expense for the quarters ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 was approximately $3,877 and $9,650 respectively.
On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Topic 842 using the modified retrospective approach. The Company recorded operating lease assets (right-of-use assets) of approximately $53,000 and operating lease liabilities of approximately $53,000. There was no impact to accumulated deficit upon adoption of Topic 842.
We have operating leases for corporate, business and technician offices.  Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less, including month-to-month agreements, are not recorded on the consolidated balance sheet, unless the arrangement includes an option to purchase the underlying asset, or an option to renew the arrangement, that we are reasonably certain to exercise (short-term leases). Our leases have remaining lease terms of one to 15 months, none of which include options to extend the leases without a new arrangement.
As of March 31, 2019, assets recorded under operating leases were approximately $43,000.  Operating lease right of use assets and lease liabilities are recognized at the lease commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. The discount rate used to determine the commencement date present value of lease payment is our incremental borrowing rate, which is the rate incurred to borrow on a collateralized basis over a similar term at an amount equal to the lease payments in a similar economic environment. Certain adjustments to the right-of-use asset may be required for items such as initial direct costs paid or incentives received.
