Why choose an operating lease?

An operating lease lets you acquire high value or specialist equipment without the risk of it losing value or having the inconvenience of disposing of it. Rental of the asset is not for its full useful economic life, meaning that it has residual value at the end of the lease period. This will be estimated at the outset of the contract and the rentals you pay are priced according to the asset’s anticipated future value.
