If payments due under the lease or a collateral agreement are expressed as monthly amounts due over a period, any payment due for that period is not the same as any of the others.

any rate of interest where the changes are linked to changes in the rate of interest applicable to inter-bank loans, or

(a)

of an amount determined before the expiry of the lease, and

(b)

referable to a value of the plant or machinery at or after the expiry of the lease.
