AI Robotics Leasing

About leases in brief

Leasing is a form of primarily asset-backed financing in which the Lessor is the owner of the leased asset (vehicle, machinery, equipment or property) for the entire time of the financing. The Lessor acquires ownership of the leased object for the purpose of making it available (leased) to the Lessee for a fee.

In the optimal case, the leased object provides adequate value for the Lessor for the entire term of the lease, while for the Lessee, the asset in use, will be able to produce all the money required for the regular lease payment.

It is advisable to finance investments in a lease if the asset has an adequate value.

Advantages of leasing
  • Additional investment financing without large amount of capital commitment
  • Due to its asset-backed nature, it requires fewer other collateral elements
  • Accounting benefits for certain leasing arrangements
  • Tax advantages for some leasing constructions
