If a periodic rate is charged by PPR, lease charges are billed to the LESSEE for each period or portion of the period from the time the equipment is delivered to LESSEE until its return. If a term lease rate is charged by PPR, lease charges are billed to the LESSEE for the full term even if the equipment is returned before the end of the term.
