Estimated current amount of liabilitiesPayables and other liabilities are to be presented at the discounted amounts of future cash to be paid. The interest rate used to discount the debt is the rate implicit in the transaction in which the debt was incurred. If, however, the debtor is able to repay the debt currently at a lower amount, the debt is to be presented at that reduced figure.
