Here is a tip:

A lease is a contract between two parties in which one party conveys equipment to another party in exchange for money for a specific time period.


  • When a lessee obtains equipment on the lease financing, there is no effect on the cash amount as lease based finance does not decrease the amount of cash.
  • The lessee can also be benefited from tax purposes through lease financing.
  • Lease financing is easier as compared to external financing as a lease requires only one document, that is, the lease agreement.

Verified Answer

Unaffected cash amount, tax benefits, and ease of process are the main benefits of lease financing for a lessee.
