Banks are known for their rigid credit/risk techniques and slow TAT. Additionally, Leasing and Factoring have the advantage over the bank in the following:
- Leasing Companies can perform a financial restructure to the balance sheet in favor of the client. The repayment schedule is tailored to match the cashflow of the company unlike banks who show no flexibility to their clients. One of the prominent leasing types used is to use MTLS to pay short term loans using sale and lease back.
- Vehicle financing is easier in leasing companies than banks (due to slow and difficult process).
- Clients favor leasing to traditional banks because banks take security interest in all company assets, including receivables and inventory while leasing is only for the leased asset in question.
- Bank funding for real estate developers is restricted by the CBE TO 5% OF their capital base with limitations to the purpose of finance (Project finance only). this is one of the main reasons that leasing companies are very active in funding real estate developers.
