How Financing Can Benefit Your Business
Use vs. Ownership:
The value of equipment is in its use, not its ownership. Financing enables you to pay for the equipment with future profit instead of working capital.
Financing results in low monthly payments, and the equipment can be purchased for a nominal cost at the end of the lease term.
Fixed payments avoid the uncertainty of variable (floating) interest rates typical of bank financing.
Monthly payments leave cash available for operational expenses or seasonal cash flow needs.
Preserve Credit Lines:
Borrowing from the bank shrinks available credit lines. Financing ensures that credit lines are available for non-equipment uses.
Lease payments (Off-balance sheet structure) may be tax deductible against income.
A simple, one-page application is generally all that is required for approval.
You can be approved for financing within one business day of receiving complete information.
Types of Leases
Operating Lease (Fair Market Value Purchase Option):
- At the end of the lease term, the lessee has the option to purchase the equipment for its Fair Market Value.
- Lease payments are charged to Operating Budget - which avoids Capital Budget constraints.
- Lease payments are generally lower than all other financing options - and are 100% deductible against taxable income.
- Leasing can greatly reduce the Cost Recovery Period for equipment.
- Operating Leases are Off-Balance Sheet transactions and improve most financial ratios, including ROA, ROI, and Debt/Net Worth measurements.
- Operating Lease payments are not an Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) item.
Capital Leases (10% and $1.00 Purchase Options)
10% Purchase Option Lease:
At the end of the lease term, the lessee has the option to purchase the equipment for 10% of the original equipment cost.
$1.00 Purchase Option Lease: At the end of the lease term, the lessee has the option to purchase the equipment for $1.00.
- Fixed purchase options.
- Generally treated as a booked asset and liability on financial statements.
- Fully depreciable for tax purposes (under MACRS.)
- Preserves bank lines of credit for operations, real estate, or other capital expenditures.

Frequently Asked Questions
Leasing offers fixed payments; provides financing for 100% of the equipment cost; allows businesses to pay for equipment while it is being used to generate income; and conserves both working capital and bank lines of credit.
Who can lease?
Corporations, Proprietorships, LLC's, Partnerships, and other Business entities using the equipment for business or commercial use.
What is the process for leasing equipment?
You fill out a simple, one-page lease application. (In certain instances, other financial information may be required such as financial statements or tax returns.) The supplied credit information is reviewed and upon approval the lease documents are prepared and sent to you for signing. Once we receive your signed documents, we issue a purchase order to your equipment vendor. Upon delivery of the equipment and acceptance by you, the equipment is paid for and the lease commences.
What factors are used to determine creditworthiness?
Type of business, time in business, financial condition, banking relationships, trade references, and Dun & Bradstreet or other credit bureau ratings.
What if my company or personal credit is not strong?
Call us to speak with one of our Leasing Specialists. It doesn't hurt to get a second opinion.
What is the minimum lease amount?
$5,000 is our minimum lease amount.
What types of leases are available?

How are lease payments determined?
The monthly payment is based on the term of the lease, cost of the equipment, and the type of lease you choose.
How long does it take to approve my lease?
Lease applications can be approved within one day of our receiving complete information.
What happens once my lease is approved?
After lease details are confirmed with you, lease documents will be sent (overnight) for your signature.
When will the Purchase Order be issued to the vendor?
Once we have received signed documents from you, we will fax a purchase order to the vendor.
What is the true definition of "Fair Market Value"?
We hear the term Fair Market Value often discussed as a purchase option at the end of a lease. FMV is the amount that would be paid by an able buyer to a willing seller in an "arms length" transaction. At no time can a buyer be related to a seller under normal business practices.
