Leasing: Frequently asked questions

What does SEB leasing finance?

SEB leasing finances the purchase of cars, commercial transport, various types of equipment and devices. The leasing object can be new or used.

What is the maximum term of the lease?

The maximum possible term of the lease is 7 years for a new leasing object. The age of a used leasing object may not exceed 10 years at the end of the term of the lease. All applications for the lease are evaluated individually.

How does an operating lease differ from a financial lease?

Financiel lease is a leasing transaction whereby SEB leasing purchases the leasing object and devolves the right of use of this object to the customer. The customer repays the value of the leasing object in full amount and at the end of the term of the lease the leasing object is transferred into the ownership of the customer.

Operating lease is a long term rent, where at the end of the term of the lease the residual value of the leasing object is determined. The customer pays only a part of the purchase price of the leasing object by the end of the term of the lease. At the end of the lease the leasing object is returned to SEB leasing.

How to proceed at the end of the operating lease?

Three options are possible at the end of the operating lease:

  • first, to return the leasing object to SEB leasing in accordance with the signed agreement;
