Finance leasing: estimates of investment in assets for leasing out

Quarterly Bulletin 1983 Q3
Published on 01 September 1983

This note updates, in modified form, tables published in the September 1982 Bulletin.

The tables accompanying this note are similar to those which appeared in the September 1982 Bulletin, and previously in the Department of Industry's publication British Business, but are now restricted to finance leasing. Thus they now exclude investment by companies primarily engaged in operating leasing and other forms of hiring and rental previously included, along with the specialised forms of leasing and hiring which were already excluded (self-drive hire, television rental, scaffolding hire, leasing of buildings by property companies). This accords with the treatment prescribed by the 1980 revised Standard Industrial Classification (SIC), being introduced this year. The SIC provides an analytical basis for industry-orientated official statistics, including the annual census of production and the supplementary quarterly enquiry into capital expenditure by the manufacturing, construction, distribution and financial sectors.
