Leases Are More Than Just Real Estate & All Industries Have Leased Assets

by | May 22, 2023

Heads up! You may have more leases subject to compliance than you realize.

Do you rent any equipment for your business? Do you have any service contracts granting you access to specific assets?

If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, you likely have a lease.

A lease is an arrangement allowing one party (the lessee) to pay another party (the lessor) for the use of their asset. A contract can be for one lease or a lease can be a portion of a contract, also known as an embedded lease.

For example, a company can lease, or rent, a copier or a vehicle. The owner of the copier or vehicle (the lessor) provides the lessee with the right to use their asset for a specific period of time in exchange for an agreed-upon payment. This is a non-real estate lease.
