Because the goods which are leased object or leasing are transferred to temporary ownership and (or) use to the lessee or the leasing recipient and data on their sales on customs area of the Union are absent, subtraction method (the method 4) can be applied only in the presence of documentary confirmed data on sales on customs area of the Union of earlier imported identical or homogeneous goods.

8. Addition method (the method 5) is based on data on production of the estimated goods supported by the business documents submitted by the producer of goods. Considering that documents and data on expenses on production of goods, as a rule, have confidential character and are not disclosed by the producer, use of method 5 will be possible only when the producer agrees to provide documents and the information on costs of production to the lessee or the leasing recipient.

At the same time it is necessary to take into account that the leased object can be provided to the lessee directly by the producer of such goods while the lessor, as a rule, is not producer of subject of leasing.
