Financial leasing and renting of movable goods

One new capital good, two possible forms of finance

Financial optimisation

Free up resources by not having to fund the purchase yourself.

Reduced administration

The lease company takes care of the administration in relation to the purchase, including payment of advances.

Purchase option

You have the option of purchasing the good at the end of the agreement.

Leasing capital goods

Investments are necessary if your business is to grow. You can take your firm to the next level by purchasing new cars, trucks or forklifts. And if you opt for financial leasing or renting, you don’t even have to stump up your own funds. You choose the goods and supplier and negotiate the purchase price. KBC then acquires the commercial rights and offers you a purchase option at the end of the lease contract.

Financial leasing versus renting

The difference between the two forms of leasing might appear small at first sight, but there is a world of difference from an accountant’s point of view. It is the Accounting Act that decides whether the leasing transaction for moveable goods qualifies as finance leasing (on balance sheet) or renting (off balance sheet). In the latter case, you process the lease charges as costs in your income statement.
