The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) issued today the “Lease Financing” booklet of the Comptroller’s Handbook. This updated booklet replaces a similarly titled booklet issued in January 1998. This booklet also replaces section 219, “Leasing Activities,” issued in June 1999 as part of the Office of Thrift Supervision’s (OTS) Examination Handbook for the examination of federal savings associations.
This booklet provides an overview of the leasing business, its associated risks, and sound risk management processes. It also provides examiners with expanded examination procedures and other tools that can be utilized in supervisory activities that target this type of financing.
