This can be useful when the customers first request is to rent an equipment, but then decides to lease it instead. It can be converted before delivery, but it is also possible to do after the equipment has been delivered and invoiced as a rental line.
Pricing in a leasing scenario differs from a regular rental scenario or from a regular sale of rental equipment. In this scenario, the pricing is based on a leasing curve.
The rental line is converted to a leasing line with curves calculated using the conditions defined during line entry in 'Rental Line. Convert to Leasing' (STS106). If leasing charges are set up for auto-creation via attribute functionality, the leasing line will also have these leasing charges connected as additional charges in 'Rental Agreement. Connect Additional Charge' (STS103).
A rental line must exist in (STS201).
For leasing charges to be connected automatically using attribute functionality on the leasing line, the contract item for the leasing charge must exist in 'Contract Item. Open' (SAS450) and this charge ID must be the same as an attribute value connected to the attribute model for this item number in 'Item. Open' (MMS001). The charge ID must also be activated to create a leasing charge through the 'Auto-create charge' setting in (SAS450).
It is also possible to edit curves in (STS106). Press Enter to trigger the calculation of new curves.
When completed, close (STS106) to return to (STS201).
If a leasing charge that has been added using attribute functionality should be deleted this must be done through the attribute. Use related option 52='Attribute Values' in (STS201) to open 'Attribute Value. Connect to' (ATS101) and remove the attribute value. This will automatically remove the connected leasing charge.
