## How to Calculate a Lease Payment

A lease is a method of financing the use of an asset, and is an agreement between a lessee (who rents the asset), and a lessor (who owns the asset). The lessor is usually a lease company or finance company.

The lessee rents the asset from the lessor in return for a periodic rental payment. The lessee never owns the asset, and at the end of the term it is returned to the lessor or a secondary period of rental is entered into.
