Think of financial leases as a fixed-term loan that allows you to buy a capital asset and pay for it on installments. In practical terms, we purchase and own the asset and lease it to you for a set period of time, generally a medium-to-long-term period. At the end of the period, you'll either own the asset or have the option to buy it for a value of EGP 1.
Financial leases — sometimes called “Capital Leasing” — is best suited to assets you want to own for the long-term: Real estate, for example, or handling machinery. At the end of the contract, the outcome is usually an asset on your balance sheet with a book value of EGP 1.
Operating leases are for the cases in which you need an asset today - and want to replace it before it becomes obsolete. Think of it as something more like a regular car rental you use the asset for a period of time, and have the right to return the vehicle to us when your lease term is up and get a replacement.
An operating lease doesn't create an asset on your books at the end of lease tenor.
Maybe you want to expand your factory to capture a market opportunity before it's too late. Add vehicles to your distribution fleet to serve new clients. Or upgrade your technology infrastructure to interface with a global partner.
