The annual lease payment will pay off the interest and the capital element of the outstanding lease liability. The outflow in financing activities is only going to be the capital element of the repayment, the payment of interest will go in operating activities. To get the capital amount paid, we will therefore deduct the finance cost from the annual payment.
The deposit is included as a payment as it is paid at the start of the lease and hence is an outflow in the accounting period.
