Costs for trucking company motor vehicle leasing

I seem to have developed a mental lapse.  I have a proprietorship running a local trucking company with 3 trucks.  He leases them all and provides me with a total amount for all three for lease costs, as well as fuel, insurance etc.  How do I enter these costs on the T2125.  If I enter the total lease costs on the 2005 (he is a little behind with his returns) T2124 Motor Vehicle expenses I get the "override" but there does not seem to be anywhere else to enter lease costs for a non-passenger vehicle motor vehicle.  I should know the answer to this but for some reason I don't.  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Two options for you to choose:

1.  Put the lease cost as a rent in T2124, just like you rent a building or other equipments and pay the rent; or
2.  On the Motor Vehicle Expense sheet,  treat the lease cost of the trucks as Other Expense, but lable it as: Lease - Trucks and type it in on a blank line.

 I prefer the second choice. Hopefully this helps.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
