I recently made a payment on my lease. How do I find out the principal and interest breakdown of that payment?

A lease payment is a flat amount paid to the lessor for the use of the equipment. There is no principal portion and no interest portion; it is simply a rental payment. Consult your tax advisor if additional information is needed.

Is there an advantage to making a payment in advance?

No, the payment amount is due by the specified date but there is no advantage to paying in advance.
