Leasing
Leasing is a process by which a firm can obtain the use of a certain fixed assets for which
it must pay a series of contractual, periodic, tax deductible payments. The lessee is the
receiver of the services or the assets under the lease contract and the lesser is the owner
of the assets. The relationship between the tenant and the landlord is called a tenancy, and
can be for a fixed or an indefinite period of time (called the term of the lease). The
consideration for the lease is called rent.
1. A contract by which one party (lesser) gives to another (lessee) the use and possession
of equipment for a specified time and for fixed payments.
2. The document in which this contract is written.
3. A great way companies can conserve capital.
4. An easy way vendors can increase sales!

Under normal circumstances, an owner of property is at liberty to do what they want with
their property, including destroy it or hand over possession of the property to a tenant.
However, if the owner has surrendered possession to another (i.e. the tenant) then any
interference with the quiet enjoyment of the property by the tenant in lawful possession is
unlawful. Similar principles apply to real property as well as to personal property, though
the terminology would be different. Similar principles apply to sub-leasing, that is the
leasing by a tenant in possession to a sub-tenant. The right to sub-lease can be expressly
prohibited by the main lease.

Leasing a product is similar to renting it; you pay the leasing company each month for the
use of the equipment. A contract lasts over a number of years, usually between 2 and 10,
depending on the cost and usable life of the product. This means that you can have the
full use (although you do not actually own it) of a piece of equipment without having to
pay the full cost of the item in one go. Over the course of the lease, the leasing company
will recover the price of the item plus their charges, meaning you only need a small
deposit to start the lease.

At the end of lease, you can choose to carry on leasing at a significantly lower rate (often
called a Peppercorn Rental), or to sell the product to another person or company. If you
sell the item then the proceeds are split between you and the leasing company, the
percentages vary significantly depending on the type of product, its lifespan, the amount
received, and who the leasing company is. Some large organizations (such as banks) offer
leasing, although the majority of companies are independent, and some are dedicated to
one industry or equipment type (E.g.: Vehicles).

Items can be Leased


(i) Vehicles
Vehicles are one of the most commonly leased products by businesses, their high cost
makes paying for them upfront very difficult for most businesses. Many companies are
vehicle leasing specific, and do not lease other forms of equipment.

A great number of vehicles are available through leasing, including; standard cars for
traveling employees, company cars, vans, and even specialist vehicles like forklift trucks.

(ii) Office Equipment


Many different types of office equipment are available for leasing. Computers (including
laptops), printers, photocopiers and fax machines are just some of the items that are
widely available.

Office furniture (particularly those related to computer equipment) is also available for
leasing, although it as not widely available as the equipment itself.

(iii) Other Items

Almost any equipment that is used for business purposes can be leased. More specific
items such as Dental or Medical and Hospital equipment, engineering and manufacturing
equipment, and agricultural equipment are all available.

If a product you require is not listed, many leasing companies will ask you to phone or
email them to suggest it; they can then locate the product for you to lease from them
TYPES OF LEASING
The most common types of leases are operating leases and finance leases.
Operating Lease
An operating lease is particularly attractive to companies that continually update or
replace equipment and want to use equipment without ownership, but also want to return
equipment at lease-end and avoid technological obsolescence. An operating lease usually
results in the lowest payment of any financing alternative and is an excellent strategy for
bypassing capital budgeting restraints. It typically qualifies for off-balance sheet
treatment and can result in improved Return on Asset (ROA) due to a lower asset base. It
can also result in higher reported earnings in the early years of the lease.
Finance Lease
A finance lease is a full-payout, non cancelable agreement, in which the lessee is
responsible for maintenance, taxes and insurance. Finance leases are most attractive in
cases where the lessee wants the tax benefits of ownership or expects the equipment's
residual value to be high. These leases are structured as equipment financing agreements
with residuals up to 10 percent. The lessee purchases the equipment upon lease
termination at a pre-agreed amount. The term of a finance lease tends to be longer, nearly
covering the useful life of the equipment.
Other types of leases are listed below:
Capital Lease
Type of lease classified and accounted for by a lessee as a purchase and by the lessor as a
sale or financing, if it meets any one of the following criteria: (a) the lessor transfers
ownership to the lessee at the end of the lease term; (b) the lease contains an option to
purchase the asset at a bargain price; (c) the lease term is equal to 75 percent or more of
the estimated economic life of the property (exceptions for used property leased toward
the end of its useful life); or (d) the present value of minimum lease rental payments is
equal to 90 percent or more of the fair market value of the leased asset less related
investment tax credits retained by the lessor.

Direct Financing Lease (Direct Lease)


A non-leveraged lease by a lessor (not a manufacturer or dealer) in which the lease meets
any of the definitional criteria of a capital lease, plus certain additional criteria.

First Amendment Lease


The first amendment lease gives the lessee a purchase option at one or more defined
points with a requirement that the lessee renew or continue the lease if the purchase
option is not exercised. The option price is usually either a fixed price intended to
approximate fair market value or is defined as fair market value determined by lessee
appraisal and subject to a floor to insure that the lessor's residual position will be covered
if the purchase option is exercised. If the purchase option is not exercised, then the lease
is automatically renewed for a fixed term (typically 12 or 24 months) at a fixed rental
intended to approximate fair rental value, which will further reduce the lessor's end-of-
term residual position. The lessee is not permitted to return the equipment on the option
exercise date. If the lease is automatically renewed, then at the expiration of that initial
renewal term, the lessee typically has the right either to return the equipment without
penalty or to renew or purchase at fair market value.

Full Payout Lease


A lease in which the lessor recovers, through the lease payments, all costs incurred in the
lease plus an acceptable rate of return, without any reliance upon the leased equipment's
future residual value.

Guideline Lease
A lease written under criteria established by the IRS to determine the availability of tax
benefits to the lessor.

Leveraged Lease
In this type of lease, the lessor provides an equity portion (usually 20 to 40 percent) of the
equipment cost and lenders provide the balance on a nonrecourse debt basis. The lessor
receives the tax benefits of ownership.

Net Lease
A lease wherein payments to the lessor do not include insurance and maintenance, which
are paid separately by the lessee.

Open-end Lease
A conditional sale lease in which the lessee guarantees that the lessor will realize a
minimum value from the sale of the asset at the end of the lease.

Sales-type Lease
A lease by a lessor who is the manufacturer or dealer, in which the lease meets the
definitional criteria of a capital lease or direct financing lease.

Synthetic Lease
A synthetic lease is basically a financing structured to be treated as a lease for accounting
purposes, but as a loan for tax purposes. The structure is used by corporations that are
seeking off-balance sheet reporting of their asset based financing, and that can efficiently
use the tax benefits of owning the financed asset.

Tax Lease
A lease wherein the lessor recognizes the tax incentives provided by the tax laws for
investment and ownership of equipment. Generally, the lease rate factor on tax leases is
reduced to reflect the lessor's recognition of this tax incentive.

Trac Lease
A tax-oriented lease of motor vehicles or trailers that contains a terminal rental
adjustment clause and otherwise complies with the requirements of the tax laws.

True Lease
A type of transaction that qualifies as a lease under the Internal Revenue Code. It allows
the lessor to claim ownership and the lessee to claim rental payments as tax deductions.

Formality of a lease
The formal requirements for a lease are determined by the law and custom of the
jurisdiction in which real property is located. In the case of personal property, it is
determined by the law and custom of the jurisdiction in which the rental agreement is
made.A tenancy for years greater than 1 year must be in writing in order to satisfy the
Statute of Frauds.
Term of a lease
The term of the lease may be fixed, periodic or of indefinite duration.If it is for a
specified period of time, the term ends automatically when the period expires, and no
notice needs to be given, in the absence of legal requirements.The term's duration may be
conditional, in which case it lasts until some specified event occurs, such as the death of a
specified individual.A periodic tenancy is one which is renewed automatically, usually on
a monthly or weekly basis.A tenancy at will lasts only as long as the parties wish it to,
and be terminated without penalty by either party.It is common for a lease to be extended
on a "holding over" basis, which normally converts the tenancy to a periodic tenancy on a
month by month basis.

Rent
Rent is a requirement of leases in common law jurisdiction, but not in civil law
jurisdiction. There is no requirement for the rent to be a commercial amount. "Pepper
corn" rent or rent of some nominal amount is adequate for this requirement.

Leasing of real property


There are different types of ownership for land but, in common law states, the most
common form is the fee simple absolute, where the legal term fee has the old meaning of
real property, i.e. real estate. An owner of the fee simple holds all the rights and privileges
to that property and, subject to the laws, codes, rules and regulations of the local law, can
sell or by contract or grant, permit another to have possession and control of the property
through a lease or tenancy agreement. For this purpose, the owner is called the lessor or
landlord, and the other person is called the lessee or tenant, and the rights to possess and
control the land are exchanged for some payment (called consideration in legal English),
usually a monthly rent. The acceptance of rent by the landowner from a tenant creates (or
extends) most of the rights of tenancy even without a written lease (or beyond the time
limit of an expiring lease). Although leases can be oral agreements that are periodic, i.e.
extended indefinitely and automatically, written leases should always define the period of
time covered by the lease. In the 1930s, the British government introduced infinite leases,
only to remove the power to create these in the early 1990s.
Leasing of tangible personal property
An owner can allow another the use of a vehicle (such as vehicle leasing of a car, a truck
or an airliner) or a computer either for a fixed period of time or at will. This can be a
simple leasing transaction, or it can be a transaction intended to allow the user the right to
buy the item at some future time.
Real leases
Whether it is better to lease or buy land will be determined by each state's legal and
economic systems. In those countries where acquiring title is complicated, the state
imposes high taxes on owners, transaction costs are high, and finance is difficult to
obtain, leasing will be the norm. But, freely available credit at low interest rates with
minimal tax disadvantages and low transaction costs will encourage land ownership.

Private property rental


Rental, tenancy, and lease agreements are formal and informal contracts between an
identified landlord and tenant giving rights to both parties, e.g. the tenant's right to
occupy the accommodation for an agreed term and the landlord’s right to receive an
agreed rent. If one of these elements is missing, only a tenancy at will or bare licence
comes into being. In some legal systems, this has unfortunate consequences. When a
formal tenancy is created, the law usually implies obligations for the lessor, e.g. that the
property meets certain minimum standards of habitability. With a bare licence, some
states do not imply any significant lessee protections

Leasing Internationally
The practice of leasing is well established in most countries of the world .However the
benefits (in particular the tax benefits) to the lessee and lessor will vary widely depending
on national accounting standards and tax regulations. These largely divide into countries
observing:

Legal Form: the lessor’s legal ownership of the property. or Substance: the lessee legal
right to use the property. National accounting standards vary in the tests that decide if the
lease is a: Capital or Finance Lease, which is considered a financing transaction - as the
lessor has less of the risks of ownership, such as the value of the equipment in future
years. Operating Lease, whose term is short compared to the useful life of the asset,
where the lessee does not have to show the lease on their balance sheet

Advantages of Leasing
Leasing provides 100% financing
Most leases simply require first and last payments paid in advance and a small
documentation fee. No security deposits or up-front money is required. Enterprise
Financial Solutions, Inc. (EFSI) pays your vendor in full including installation, delivery
and taxes unless state law prohibits.
Leasing preserves credit lines

Credit lines with banks and other depository institutions are precious and hard to
establish. Conserve those lines for inventory, A/R or other uses and emergencies. EFSI
will take care of the financing for your capital equipment so that your lines of credit
remain free.
Leasing increases purchasing power

Your needs may be for a $50,000 machine but your available cash/credit only allows for
$30,000, hence you settle for a smaller piece of machinery that only meets your needs
half-way. EFSI can increase your purchasing power by allowing you to finance the
needed equipment for the job. That way you get the equipment you need to meet demand
and promote growth.
Leasing balances usage and cost

Leasing makes sense when the equipment you use creates a return that exceeds its cost.
In other words, leasing allows you to set a fixed monthly payment for the use of
equipment that creates an anticipated return exceeding that payment. That way you are
certain that your operation is profitable and the equipment serves its purpose.
Leasing provides fixed rate financing

Leasing is not subject to market fluctuations and interest rate increases. You can
negotiate the monthly payments up front and secure a fixed rate for the life of the lease.
This makes it much easier to project cash flow and budgets for planning purposes.
Leasing conserves working capital

Keep your hard-earned cash on hand or invested. Enterprise Financial Solutions, Inc.
enables you to enjoy the working capital your company receives since it covers all costs
associated with capital equipment purchases. This ability to grow and keep your cash
ultimately puts you ahead of your competition and ensures long-term profitability.
Leasing is convenient

Unlike dealing with bank loans and other alternative types of financing, leasing is an easy
and convenient process. Typically, all we require is a one-page application for any
request up to $50,000. Any request above that amount will require some financial
disclosure.
.
Leasing is a hedge against inflation

Since your payments apply to the use of the equipment you do not pay for ownership on
equipment that consistently depreciates. Furthermore, your cash savings can yield a
return that fights inflationary pressures.
Leasing provides flexible payments

Lease payments can be structured to meet your needs. This adjustment is possible by
correcting the residual value of the equipment due at lease end. By changing your end of
lease balloon payment from $10,000 to $25,000 for example, you can lower your
monthly payment significantly.

Leasing provides options


Leasing provides flexible end of lease options. Equipment at the end of the lease term can
returned, extended or purchased.

No Large Outlay
The biggest advantage of leasing equipment is that the cost is spread over a number of
years; there is no need for you to pay the entire amount upfront. This can significantly
help maintain cash flow, which is critical to all businesses. Poor cash flow is the main
cause of small business failures, and leasing can help you to keep it under better control.
Leasing can also allow you to use better equipment (E.g.: A more efficient / faster / more
accurate product) that would be too expensive to buy outright.
Security
When you lease a product, it is still owned by the leasing company, meaning that they
have better security on your finance. This means you are unlikely to need any further
security to be able to start a leasing contract, and therefore you have a much better chance
of acceptance (passing the credit check) than with other forms of finance.
Tax Advantages

When structured properly, a lease agreement may allow you to receive tax benefits.
These benefits and their availability are subject to an array of factors and we suggest you
talk with your accountant about these benefits. Similarly, any tax benefit received from
the ownership of the equipment by EFSI is passed on to the lessee through competitive
rates and lower fees.Lease rentals are considered as an operating cost, which means that it
is often possible to deduct them from taxable profits (as a trading expense). However,
you should always check that the equipment you are buying is eligible before agreeing to
a contract.

If your business pays no or minimal taxes, then some leasing companies will claim the
capital allowance on your behalf, and lower the leasing costs accordingly.

Budgeting

As a lease agreement is almost always a fixed contract, it is relatively easy to budget and
forecast with. The amount can be worked into your businesses budget much more easily
than an irregularly occurring lump sum; allowing you to keep a much better control over
current and future cash flow. In the event that you need an item replacing quickly, you
can do so with a relatively minor monthly adjustment to the budget, instead of a lump
sum that could seriously damage cash flow.
What are the Disadvantages of Leasing?

(i) No Ownership

The main disadvantage of leasing is that you never own the product. It remains the
property of the leasing company during and after the lease. The only exception being if
you arrange for it to be sold to another company or person, in which case the leasing
company would receive the money and a percentage would be passed back to you
(depending on the amount, product type, age, and which leasing company you use).

As you do not own the product, you are unable to sell it in the event it is no longer
needed, and you cannot upgrade to a newer or better product without either paying off the
remaining contract, or paying a large fee to cancel the contract. You also need to carry on
paying a smaller lease cost, even after the cost of the equipment has been fully covered.

Hire purchase will allow you to own the product at the end of the agreement, but this is
normally more difficult to arrange, and is often available only on highly costly items.

(ii) Long Term Expense

Although leasing allows you to avoid paying a large lump sum, over a long period of
time it often works out considerably more expensive. Over the course of a standard lease,
you pay the cost of the equipment as well as the leasing companies charges.

After the lease finishes you need to carry on paying rental to use the product (although
after the initial lease the cost of rental goes down significantly). This means that over a
number of years, you will pay considerably more than the actual cost of the equipment
without ever actually owning it.

(iii) Maintenance

Although you do not own the equipment that you lease, you are still responsible for its
maintenance and repair. Unless you have specifically trained employees to fix the
equipment, then this could prove very costly in the event of a serious fault.

Some leasing companies will allow you to cover the maintenance and repair costs for an
extra sum (which is added to the monthly leasing cost). This will increase your monthly
payments, but may save you money in the long run; particularly with manual or highly
technical products that may go wrong frequently, and may cause severe disruption if out
of action. Cover is normally through the leasing company itself, or through a separate
insurance policy.

Car leasing is slightly different, as many of these agreements include basic maintenance.
However, it is vitally important to check, as some will not include it in the basic price,
and the terms and conditions will vary with each leasing company.
SOME OTHER DISADVANTAGES
 Commitment to contract for entire validity period.
 Higher fixed costs per month.
 More expensive than purchase.
 Leasing provides the following advantages:
 The holder only pays for use .
 Better liquidity, since holder does not need to put up a large amount of money for
purchase .
 Fixed rate, so precise monthly costs can be calculated .
 Minimal sales risk, since the holder is not responsible for the vehicle's disposal at
the end of contract validity .

STANDARD RELATED TO LEASING

LEASING IN ISLAMIC SYSTEM


IJARA
Ijara shares many similar characteristics to lease financing and hire-purchase
arrangements. It involves a lessor (usually a financial institution) purchasing an asset, and
renting it to a lessee for a specific time period at an agreed rental or receiving a share of
the profits generated by the asset. There are two main types of lease under the Ijara
structure. The first involves a longer term lease which usually ends with the transfer of
ownership of the asset to the lessee (Ijara wa lqtina), as in a modern finance lease. The
second type of lease is for a shorter term and will usually end with the financial
institution retaining ownership of the asset, in common with an operating lease. The
rental income in this second type of lease will take into account wear and tear of the
asset. To comply with Shariah, the leased assets must not be prohibited items (for
example, machinery for the manufacturing of alcohol) and must be used in waysdeemed
lawful by Shariah

CONCEPT OF IJRAH

• Ijarah is an Islamic alternative of Leasing.


• Leasing backed by an acceptable contract is an acceptable transaction
under Shariah.

“Ijarah is a contract whereby the owner of an asset, other than consumable, transfers its
usufruct to another person for an agreed period at an agreed consideration.”

SILENT FEATURE OF IJARAH


 Contrary to Finance Lease, in Ijarah the ownership of the assets remains with
Lessor (the bank) and only its right of usage is transferred to the lessee.

 Until the assets to be leased are delivered to the lessee, no lease rental become
due and payable. (i.e. Ijarah cannot be recorded until the subjected asset is
delivered to the lessee.)

 The title of the assets remains with the Lessor during the entire lease term.

 The Lessor bears all the risk and reward associated with the ownership to the
asset.

 All cost associated with the asset to bring it into usable form and condition
should be borne by the lessor.
Types/Classification of Ijarah
1. Operating Ijarah
Operating Ijarah is a lease that does not include a promise that the legal title in the
leased asset will pass to the lessee at the end of the lease

2. Ijarah Muntahia Bittamleek (Ijarah wa Iqtina)


It is a lease that concludes with the legal title in the asset passing to the lessee
after Ijarah. Ijarah Muntahia Bittamleek includes:
 Ijarah through gift
 Ijarah & transfer of legal title at the end of the lease for a token consideration or
other amount as specified in the lease
 Ijarah through transfer of title prior to the end of lease at a price pre-decided
3. Ijarah tul Musha or Joint ownership Ijarah
It is a lease where Bank & customer jointly owned the leased asset. Bank gives its
share to the customer on lease.
After the term of Ijarah, the treatment is similar to Ijarah Muntahia Bittamleek

Process of Ijarah (Muntahia Bittamleek)

Accounting Standard for Ijarah
IFAS 2 - Ijarah
Application of Standard
The Islamic Financial Accounting Standard (IFAS)-2 “ IJARAH” was issued by the
Institute of Chartered Accountants of Pakistan and was adopted by the Securities and
Exchange Commission of Pakistan vide its notification S.R.O 431 (i)/2007 dated May
22,2007.

Effective date

IFAS-2 becomes operative for financial statements covering periods beginning on or after
July 01, 2007.

Retrospective application of this IFAS is not mandatory. i.e. the IFAS is applicable for
Ijarah commencing on or after July 01, 2007.

Major difference between accounting of Finance Lease and Ijarah

Finance Lease (pre-adoption method)

1) Leases are recorded as financing in the books of Lessor (the bank).

2) Un-earned income i.e ‘excess of aggregate rentals over cost of the asset” are
recorded at the inception of lease and amortized over the lease term.
3) Provision against Doubtful debts is calculated according to the criteria given in
Prudential Regulations for banks.
4) Leases are disclosed net of provision, income suspense and unearned income.
Revenue is recorded to the extent of income portion of the rentals based on the manner
which produce a constant rate of return.

Ijarah (post-adoption method)

1) Ijarah assets are recorded at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment.

2) Rental from Ijarah is recognized as income on accrual basis.

3) Costs, including depreciation is charged to income statement.


4) Assets leased out should be classified according to it nature, distinguished from the
assets in own use. (i.e. Plant & Machinery, Vehicle etc.)
5) Lessor should make an impairment testing for the asset on a regular basis. Any
impairment should be dealt in according to the requirements of IAS 36 “ Impairment of
assets.”
Accounting Policy for Ijarah

Ijarah Asset Recognition

• All Ijarah transactions are to be recorded as “Asset Acquired for Ijarah” at


sum of all Cost incurred by the bank in acquiring the asset..

• Assets are to be stated at their cost less accumulated depreciation and


impairment if any.

• Depreciation is to be charged to income applying the method which reflects the


pattern in which the asset’s future economic benefits are expected to be consumed
by the bank.

• In respect of addition and disposal of assets, depreciation will be charged from


the month of acquisition till the month of disposal.

Revenue Recognition

Ijara rentals are to be recognized as income on accrual basis in a systematic manner over
the lease period

Expense Recognition

Carrying costs, including depreciation, incurred in earning the Ijarah income are
recognized as an expense in the Income statement.
