Tokyo Century Group estimates the market value (establishes the residual value) of equipment which has reached the end of its leasing period and calculates lease fees by subtracting this residual value from the value of the equipment. Tokyo Century Group bears residual value costs, making it possible for customers considering equipment investment to lessen their own costs.

Applicable Equipment

General purpose equipment for which a residual value can be set are applicable to operating lease.

Example Equipment

Post-Lease Processing

Customers may choose from the following options by four months prior to lease completion.


Operating leases are off-balance sheet

Operating leases are off-balance sheet. In comparison with capitalization, operating leases make it possible to improve financial condition.

In addition, lease fees may be processed as a standard lease, making it possible to reduce administrative workload as well.

Operating leases are off-balance sheet

Reduction of Equipment Costs

The establishment of residual value makes monthly lease fees economical. In principle, there is no obligation to pay equivalent residual value when it is time to return leased equipment.

Payment Examples

Flexible Lease Periods Available

Unlike a standard finance lease, lease periods can be set flexibly in line with production plans or other purposes.

Post-Lease Choices Which Meet Customer Needs

Customers can purchase leased equipment upon contract expiration for fair market value. In addition, just like a standard finance lease, customers can also choose to continue using their leased equipment (as secondary lease when operating lease was applied) or return the equipment to Tokyo Century Group.
