Leasing is a widely used alternative form of financing for companies. This is a contractual agreement between two parties in which one party that owns an asset (the lessor) agrees to provide the other party (the lessee) the right to use the underlying asset. In exchange for that, the lessor receives periodical payments at pre-determined dates. In this way, the lessee uses that asset and pays interest in return.
