A lease is an agreement by a customer (called the Lessee) to pay a monthly payment for a speciﬁc amount of time for the right to use property owned by the lease company (called the Lessor). The customer is responsible for insurance, maintenance, and all other costs of ownership.
Leasing offers ﬁxed payments; provides ﬁnancing for 100% of the equipment cost; allows businesses to pay for equipment while it is being used to generate income; and conserves both working capital and bank lines of credit.
