.A. BACKGROUND

Mongolia has received a credit from the International Development Association (IDA) for a Strengthening Fiscal and Financial Stability (SFFS). The project is designed for four components: (i) Strengthening Macroeconomic and Fiscal management, (2) Improving the efficiency of public financial management, (3) Enhancing financial sector stability, (4) Project management. The objectives are: to contribute to the government of Mongolia’s efforts to strengthen fiscal and financial stability and improve the quality of expenditure management. The project is supporting government efforts of building capacities in the fiscal, social, and financial sectors (for more details on the SFFS, please refer to the project appraisal document  report No.P161048).

Mongolia’s Financial leasing law came into effect on 22 June 2006 and there were minor amendments in this law in 2018. And as stated in the following documents the Government of Mongolia has listed the amendment of the Financial leasing law as one of its objectives.

According to Parliament Resolution №42, dated on August 28th, 2020 ratified the “Government action plan 2020-2024”, states that “3.1.5. Accessibility of financial leasing services will be improved”. In addition to Parliament Resolution №12, dated on January 22nd, 2021 ratifying the “Agenda for improving Mongolia’s legislation 2020-2024”, states that “49. Amendment to Financial leasing law by 2022” with the following objective of improving regulation of the financial leasing sector, implementing international best practices, and improve the ability for financial leasing companies to raise capital.

The financial leasing sector is not regulated by any state entity, and the current law has several contradictory articles that is not in compliance with international best practices, which is hampering the sustainable development of the financial leasing sector as well as can create potential risks to the financial sector.

According to the current legislative environment only banks and savings and credit cooperatives are able to engage in financial leasing activities. However, this activity is not tightly regulated, and special licensing is not required to engage in financial leasing.

Due to the unregulated state of the financial leasing sector data collection, it is completed in an ad hoc approach. However, according to the latest study completed by XacLeasing LLC in 2016, the domestic leasing sector was estimated to be 410.9 billion MNT which is about 60% larger than the 256.0 billion MNT of the savings and credit cooperative sector in 2020.

Therefore, amendments are needed to the Financial leasing law to improve the state’s responsibility to the financial leasing sector, implement international best practices, as well as remove contradictory articles and refine the rights and responsibilities of parties engaged in financial leasing transactions.
