equipment lease
A lease is granted by the owner of property or equipment to allow a person to have a possession of and use it for a fixed period in return for a periodic rental payment. The leasing cost is the total rental price over the period of the lease and is often measured against the capital cost of the equipment together with the financing cost such as the equivalent interest on the capital over the period of the lease.
