First Known Use of leasehold
Financial Definition of LEASEHOLD
What It Is
A leasehold is an accounting category that contains leased assets.
How It Works
For example, let's say that Company XYZ leases a widget-making machine from Company ABC. It pays $2,000 a month to lease the asset. It also pays $1,000 a month to lease two delivery vehicles, $3,500 a month for office space, and $400 a month for a couple of billboards around town. These are Company XYZ's leaseholds.
Leaseholds can also be for cars, manufacturing equipment, office space, photocopiers, musical instruments, solar panels, or virtually any other asset. Generally, leases are handy when one party has the capital to purchase the asset and another party does not have the capital to do so but would like access to the asset.
Why It Matters
Leaseholds designate which assets aren't really the lessee's property. Accordingly, these are assets that companies must account for them in particular ways.
