In line with that, according to IAI (2009) states that the term leasing comes from the word lease which means rent or more generally defined as lease. Lease is an agreement in which the lessor gives the lessee the right to use an asset for an agreed period of time. In return, the lessee makes a payment or series of payments to the lessor.

The definition of leasing according to the laws and regulations in force in Indonesia is defined by the term "lease", this can be found in the Minister of Finance Decree No. 1169/KMK.01/1991 concerning leasing activities which state that leasing is a financing activity in the form of providing capital goods (eg cars or factory machines) for a certain period based on periodic payments.

In general, leasing means equipment funding, namely financing of equipment/capital goods to be used in the production process of a company either directly or indirectly. Leasing also means company financing in the form of providing capital goods with periodic payments by the company using the capital goods, and can purchase or extend the period based on the residual value. (Naim, 1990: 152)

Meanwhile, according to Komar Andasasmita (Susilo, 2001: 221), that leasing is related to agreements which in entering into a contract are based on a certain relationship between the length of a contract and the length of use (economical) of the goods which are the object of the contract and it is agreed that the other party (the lessor) without relinquishing his property rights according to the law is obliged to hand over the right to enjoy the goods to another party (lessee) while the lessee is obliged to pay adequate compensation to enjoy the goods without the aim of owning it (juridichie eigendom).

From the above definition, it can be concluded that leasing is a contract or agreement between the lessor and the lessee, the objects of the lease are capital goods, and the lessee has option rights at a price based on the residual value and in accordance with the agreement that has been agreed upon by mutual agreement.
