What is leasing?
Leasing is a financial agreement between two parties, the Lessor and the Lessee for the rental of an asset for a specific period of time in return of specified payments. Basically, leasing is a medium-term financing instrument for procurement of equipment, machinery, vehicles and/or other assets. It allows one party, the Lessee, to use an asset that is owned by another party, the Lessor. The Lessee uses the leased object which is owned by the Lessor and makes regular lease payments according to the lease agreement signed by both parties. At the maturity of the leasing agreement, the ownership of the leased asset can be transferred to the Lessee at a symbolic cost. Thus, the financial leasing is similar to Ijara, an Islamic mode of financing that is used for procurement of equipment and machinery.
Main participants of the leasing operation:
Lessor–an entity which acquires the object of lease requested by the Lessee for its subsequent transfer to the Lessee under the lease agreement.
Lessee–an entity that, in accordance with the lease agreement is obliged to accept the leasing object for a fee, for a certain period of time and on certain conditions for temporary possession and use.
Supplier or vendor– an entity that sells to the Lessor the leasing object according to the sales contract with the specifications agreed between the Lessor and Lessee on the basis of the lease agreement. The seller is obliged to transfer the object of lease to either the Lessor or the Lessee as per the terms of the sales contract.
Insurer – is an insurance company that insures the leasing object in accordance with the terms of leasing agreement. It gets involved in the transaction of leasing by providing insurance coverage for equipment, machinery, transport and other types of assets and covers potential risks associated with the leased asset and/or lease transaction
