Main Products and Services
A finance lease is a transaction in which a leasing company purchases the machinery and equipment you need on your behalf and leases the property to you for a relatively long period of time at a fixed lease fee. We support our customers with effective capital investment and efficient management through leasing.
An operating lease is a transaction in which a leasing company estimates the used value of the leased property at the end of the lease term in advance as the residual value and sets the lease fee based on the “property value - residual value.” You can reduce your costs by leasing your property based on a fee that reflects its used value.
Under installment sales transactions, a leasing company purchases machinery and equipment selected by the customer on behalf of the customer and sells the equipment to the customer over a long period in installments. We offer installment sales transactions for properties that are not suitable for leases due to tax reasons or when the customer wishes to own the property.
The customer is required to record the assets of the machinery and equipment and to record the depreciation. Ownership is retained by a leasing company until payment of the installment sale price and is ultimately transferred to the customer.
