Equipment leasing

Prefer not to take on debt for the equipment your business needs? Choose a lease and start benefiting straight away

Equipment leasing is similar to a loan, however, the lender is the owner of the equipment and the business pays lease (or rent) payments to the owner of the equipment over an agreed upon term. Leasing differs from a loan in that it does not appear on your company balance sheet and the lease payments are deductible expenses on the income statement.

Leases can provide much needed flexibility and can be structured depending on the cash flow cycle of your business.

Why equipment leasing?

Tax benefits

For most lease programs, the business owner can write off the entire lease payment as a business expense, not just the interest paid. This means the entire amount paid for the equipment can be written off by deducting the monthly lease payments on the annual tax filing.

Stay efficient

Keep the business operating efficiently or meet increasing demand with the newest and most efficient tools.

Ease of application

Depending on the size of the equipment purchase; usually under $200,000 can be very quick and easy. Small ticket items are driven by the type and value of the equipment, as well as the credit quality of the business, usually resulting in a 24 to 48 hour application process.
