A transaction that appears as a lease from an accounting standpoint, but as a loan from a tax standpoint. The end results are an off-balance sheet account of the financing and the tax benefits that accompany the financed asset.
An operating lease that is structured in a way so that it is not recorded as a liability on the balance sheet. Instead, it is considered to be an expense on the income statement.
