EQUIPMENT LEASING AS A SOURCE OF FINANCE IN CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

 

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study is to find out how the establishment of Equipment Leasing in the Federation has helped in financing investment. To carry out this study, four research questions were formulated. In this study, a questionnaire was used to collected relevant data from the staff of Marlum Construction Company, Emene, Enugu. The findings revealed that Marlum has a positive perception that the established of Equipment Leasing in the federation helped in improvement of investments while lessens also have positive perception, better perception in all the issues raised in the research work. The relative recent development of leasing in Nigeria as compared to other forms of finance have been said to be the reason for the stunning lack of information about it and the options it offers to the business concern in Nigeria. This lack of information is pitiful in that most members of the public are not even aware of its presence in Nigeria. The need for organized and comprehensive information could not be over emphasized.Furthermore, being new most investors are not really well informed as to the profitability or otherwise of leasing as a finance option, hence the low level of firms that engaged in leasing which goes to compound the problem of the Nigerian investors not having much choice as to the best alternative available to him. Subsequently, this study will go a long way in projecting the profitability and future prospects of leasing business in Nigeria and also contributing to the development of leasing in Nigeria which under the present economic condition its impatience cannot be over emphasized.

Equipment leasing started in Nigeria in early 60’s through off-shore United Kingdom leasing companies. Awelewa (1989, pp.20) with the outbreak of civil war in 1967, these leasing transaction became impossible due to difficulties in exchange control measures introduced by the military Government. The Marlum Civil Engineering and construction Company, Enugu is not an exception in the equipment leasing. The Marlum have been in existence from 2002 to date in this leasing process. Equipment leasing was their main source of finance. The leasing increased their paid up capital. At a time it started to dwindle due to the lessor could not meet up to the expectations of demand by the construction company. Sometimes, the lessor may not use the equipment as a result of depreciation occurance. Delay in the payment caused the dwindle. The lessor may not finish the payment until he died. Before leasing the equipment, the lessor has to write the designated place where the equipment has to be used. The person has to be registered in a well-know company. The purpose of which the equipment you want will be indicated in the form. Most problems are encountered by Marlum Construction company is over used and breakdown of equipment. The lessor does not give adequate information about the equipment after used. When another lessor comes to use the same equipment , the damages which have been caused by the former, will be noticed. The company has been suffering from this because of insecurity in the use of equipment.

Some of the lessor could not meet up with the company demand in leasing out the equipment as a result of restricted guideline. The Marlum security officers were not always at their duty post and this negligence of duty created a lot of problems to the extent that they were present even when equipment is returned. Marlum spends so much time and money in the courts because of the litigation of all types particularly with respect to recovery of bad debts or doubtful debts.
