How an Operating Lease Guarantee works
EKF issues a guarantee to you so you can lease your equipment to your foreign customer.
Your customer pays a monthly lease for the equipment. The lease payment ends when the agreement expires, and your customer returns the equipment. Then you can lease out the equipment again.
If your customer is unable or unwilling to pay the lease, we compensate the main part of your loss. This reduces your risk to a minimum.
The guarantee also paves the way for income that you would otherwise have missed out on, it benefits both you and your customer.
How to get an Operating Lease Guarantee
You want to lease equipment to a customer in a foreign country
Your foreign customer only needs your equipment for a short period, e.g. a couple of years. They are therefore unwilling to buy the equipment. Instead, you offer a lease agreement and win the order.
You want to insure yourself against loss
You are uncertain whether your customer can or will pay the lease for the entire period, so you want to insure yourself against loss. You contact EKF.
We run a credit rating check on your export transaction
You ask EKF for an Operating Lease Guarantee. However, first of all, we need to run a credit rating check on your customer, and also ensure that you are aware of the rules regarding VAT and leasing in the relevant country. We will also carry out a CSR screening. If the guarantee amount is over DKK 25 million, a more in-depth CSR assessment will be required. You also complete and sign the relevant documents.
We send you an offer setting out the coverage, price and conditions.
And we're done
We then issue the guarantee, which covers most of your loss if your customer does not keep to the lease agreement.
