Abstract:This study examines leasing competence, Iease structure and perceived performance among SMEs in Uganda. The authors analyzed the current utilization of lease financing by SMEs as an alternative financing source for their business activities especially where the Ieasing competences of SME managers have been enhanced. They found that lease reviews are usually done after a long period. Furthermore, there was a significant positive relationship between leasing competence and lease structure and perceived performance while the lease structure was the most significant predictor of SME performance. The authors conclude that the performance of the lessee depends very much on the competence of the SME managers and the Iease structure and thus recommend continued enhancement of the competence of SME managers manage the leased assets effectively.
