Leasing is one of the best and most popular forms of financing investments in Austria and CEE (Central and Eastern Europe). The combination of tailored structures and certain tax and accounting advantages makes leasing so attractive.
Raiffeisen Bank International’s Leasing Group operates 17 offices in Central and Eastern Europe and is one of the leading leasing providers in the region.
Most of the companies are positioned as universal leasing companies offering the entire product range – motor vehicle, equipment and real estate leasing. All leasing companies act independently from the manufacturer and offer tailored solutions as well as sales finance, besides the typical standard business.
The Austrian subsidiary RBI Leasing is in particular specialized in large equipment and real estate leasing for corporate customers of Raiffeisen Bank International AG. In addition, aircraft financing for business jets is a key pillar of the company.
As of 31 December 2017, Raiffeisen Leasing Group had 825 employees and the balance sheet total amounted to about € 2,920 million.


Vendor Finance

What is International Vendor Finance? Many international companies have discovered CEE as a market with interesting business opportunities.
The region is characterised by fast development, and the process of catching up results in high demand for new consumer products and investments.

Many international producers of equipment and consumer goods are therefore aiming at optimising their distribution channels through the use of financial schemes and partners. International Vendor Finance is the best way to enhance vendors‘ sales across the entire CEE region.

International Vendor Finance supports both the start-up and expansion of business throughout CEE:

  • We offer a combination of the supplier‘s product and our financing to customers. 
  • International Vendor Finance enhances the market opportunities of exporters and provides them with an excellent tool for market penetration. 
  • Payment of the supplier‘s sales price is secured by doing business with Raiffeisen Bank International, a strong and reliable partner.

Raiffeisen-Leasing Group is the ideal choice when it comes to International Vendor Finance. By offering tailor made financing solutions we assist to develop and optimise a company‘s business processes.

Vehicle & Equipment Leasing

Equipment leasing constitutes the leasing of equipment forming parts of fixed assets. Any capital good which has economic value and can be separately used and disposed of qualifies for leasing.

With Raiffeisen-Leasing Group as partner our clients enjoy comprehensive benefits:  

  • Rental as a business expense
    Leasing instalments are recognised as rental expense and hence are fully deductible from taxable profits. Provided models are structured appropriately, accelerated depreciation can also be realised.
  • Preserving capital and lines of credit
    Leasing is an external financing: the lines of credit and asset values are unaffected and liquidity is not reduced.
  • Preserving balance sheet strength
    Neither the leased asset nor the external funding required´to finance it are shown in the balance sheet.
  • "Pay as you earn"
    Our financing plan allows the customer to tailor the financing to the useful life of the asset, so that the leasing instalments are paid out of the matching income streams ("pay as you earn").
  • Transparent financial planning
    Regular leasing instalments simplify financial plannning and budgeting. Job and project costing also becomes easier.
  • Operating Leasing
    We provide Operating Leasing financing according to IFRS/US-GAAP (Off-Balance) in case of third party coverage of the residual value.
