OVERVIEW OF LEASING IN UGANDA
attributes of a lease
Agreement between the lessor and the lessee. 

Lessor transfers the use (butnot the ownership) of the asset to the lessee. 

Lessee compensates the lessor for the use of the asset, usually in the form of rent. 

After the pre-determined period of use (the lease term), which should not exceed the asset's economic life, the lessee returns the asset to the lessor or, depending on the arrangements, may have an option to purchase it or lease it for a secondary period at a lower rental.
