Leases [Abstract]  



I.D. Systems determines whether an arrangement is a lease at inception. I.D. Systems has operating leases for office space and office equipment. I.D. Systems’ leases have remaining lease terms of one year to seven years, some of which include options to extend the lease term for up to five years. I.D. Systems considered these options to extend in determining the lease term used to establish I.D. Systems’ right-of use assets and lease liabilities once reasonably certain of exercise. I.D. Systems’ lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.


Right-of-use (“ROU”) assets represent I.D. Systems’ right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent I.D. Systems’ obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Operating lease ROU assets and operating lease liabilities are recognized at the lease commencement date based on the present value of the future lease payments over the lease term. The operating lease ROU asset also includes any lease payments made in advance of lease commencement and excludes lease incentives. The lease terms used in the calculations of the operating ROU assets and operating lease liabilities include options to extend or terminate the lease when I.D. Systems is reasonably certain that it will exercise those options. Lease expense for lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term.


As I.D. Systems’ leases do not provide an implicit rate, I.D. Systems uses its incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments.


I.D. Systems has lease agreements with lease and non-lease components, which are generally not accounted for separately.


Components of lease expense are as follows:


    Three Months Ended September 30, 2019     Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019  
Operating lease cost   $ 233,000     $ 622,000  
Short term lease cost     87,000       231,000  
    $ 320,000     $ 853,000  


I.D. Systems has lease arrangements which are classified as short-term in nature. I.D. Systems has elected the short-term lease recognition exemption for all leases that qualify. This means, for those leases that qualify, I.D. Systems will not recognize ROU assets or lease liabilities.
