When we speak of Operatin Lease, the lesor (owner) of the vihicle transfers the right of use of the certaing vehicle for the period of the contract and agains paiment to the Leassee. All payments by the Lessee are treated as operating expenses at the income statement and expenditure. Also the Lease does not affect the balance sheet.
No rist of the property is taken, only the pleasure of using the car.
