Lease purchase is a kind of sales contract in which the seller/financier leases the asset for an agreed period of time for a certain number of monthly payments. The buyer only acquires ownership when the full amount of the contract has been paid to the financier/seller of the goods. The buyer therefore owns the asset only in the last tranche. It is strongly discouraged to use leases as a kind of off-balance sheet financing and is not in accordance with General Accounting Principles (GAAP). In return, the supplier charges interest corresponding to a certain rate of interest on the principal, which the borrower must pay in instalments with the amount of the principal. For the purchase of an asset or for any type of expansion, the maturity loan is a simple option to organize financing in a short time. The risk of holding the asset: in case of lease purchase, there is an option called “The Half-Rule”, which states that the user can return the asset and terminate the contract at any time by sending a written notification to the seller/financier. While in credit financing, the user of the asset must bear the overall risk of asset devaluation due to technological change. Some merchants work more expensive than both banks for the rental purchase. For example, Windsor Motors charges €7,470 if you borrow €30,000 per lease purchase over five years; while First Citizen Finance calculates between €6,881.60 and €7,403, depending on whether you buy a new or used car. Neither Permanent TSB nor Ulster Bank offer rental purchases. In both cases, that is: If the asset is acquired by loans or if it is leased, the user of the asset can deduct the amortization of the asset (which is reduced each year due to the amortization value effect) and also for interest on temporary loans or tempered purchase rates.
The only difference is in the quantitative level of interest. Consumers who wish to obtain independent information or help in understanding the terms of their tempe sale contract (or other loan) are requested to contact the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission – see “Where they can apply” below. In addition to information and assistance, the Agency will help ensure that complaints are handled properly by the finance companies they regulate. It is advisable to read a rental agreement very carefully before committing to an agreement. . . .
