The sharp decline in bank lending to nearly provoked the bankruptcy of many manufacturing companies, leasing companies and banks. In early 2009, have been frozen by credit and leasing programs for the segment of large and medium-sized businesses. Forfeiting and leasing for small businesses while working, but with significant changes in credit policy. The biggest negative in terms of leasing has made a construction area, and, accordingly, the leasing companies have passed through a stream of massive defaults on its lease of construction equipment, machinery and trucks. Currently leased vehicles and equipment for the construction sector almost stopped. Lending to leasing companies to projects in the construction sector is completely frozen.
Significant changes have been leased vehicles, mainly cars. The Tax Code has changed, which overturned an increasing coefficient 3 on the leasing of equipment since 2009 of the amortization of groups 1-3. In result, the leasing of cars, turning the business into unattractive financial instrument. This state of affairs is likely to make leasing companies to leave the car market.

General trend in the development of leasing in 2009 will be small business loans for risk diversification. In addition, a small business is more stable and income than the corporate segment.
