Cross Border Leasing

Meaning : In case of cross-border or international lease, the lessor and the lessee are situated in two different countries. Because the lease transaction takes place between parties of two or more countries, it is called cross-border lease. It involves relationships and tax implications more complex than the domestic lease. Cross-border leasing has been widely used in some European countries, to arbitrage the
difference in the tax laws of different countries.
