BOND ANTICIPATION NOTE (BAN) is a tax-exempt note that is issued as temporary or bridge financing until a bond issue is floated. The proceeds from the bond issue are then used to payoff the bond anticipation note.
BASIS, INVESTMENT, is the cost or book value of an investment. The gain or loss on an investment is the sale price less the basis. Basis is often called "cost basis."
SYNTHETIC LEASE is a transaction that appears, from an accounting standpoint, as a lease, but as a loan from a tax standpoint; resulting in an off-balance sheet account of the financing and the tax benefits that accompany the financed asset.
