Asset Management
A lease provides the use of equipment for specific periods of time at fixed payments. The lessor assumes and manages the risk of equipment ownership. At the end of the lease, the lessor is responsible for the disposition of the asset.
Avoid the risk of your equipment becoming obsolete
With outright ownership you run the risk that new technology will make your equipment obsolete within a few years, leaving you with equipment that no longer meets your needs. Leasing allows you to replace or upgrade your equipment to help your company maintain its competitive edge.
Conserves Capital
Leasing allows you to pay less for the equipment over an extended period time, which in turn allows you to free-up liquid capital and employ working capital in areas where returns are higher.
Conserves and Protects Credit Lines
Leasing provides you a new source of credit. You can preserve established lines of credit and potentially extend your credit “ceiling”.
Customized Solutions
“reel” offers a variety of finance products, allowing you to customize a program to address your business needs and requirements such as cash flow, budget, transaction structure and cyclical fluctuations. Some leases allow you, for example, to miss one or more payments without a penalty, and important feature for seasonal businesses. Please go to our Products section for more detailed information.
Finance 100% of Your Costs
In most cases, the full amount of the equipment and soft costs such as maintenance agreements, installation, freight, sales tax, accessories, training and other services may be included in the monthly lease payment. This spreads the costs out evenly over the term of the lease and frees your money to work harder for you in other areas.
As your business grows and your needs change, leasing gives you the flexibility to add, upgrade, or refresh your equipment as needed through add-on or master leases. Payment schedules can be easily adjusted or deferred to match your cash flow and budget. Again, you also have the option to include soft costs.
Flexible End of Terms Options
There are several options for disposing of equipment after the lease term ends including returning the equipment, renewing the lease or purchasing the equipment. Additionally, end-of-lease options allow you to avoid the burdens and costs of equipment disposal and recycling.
Flexible Payment Plans
Leasing is flexible. Unlike a conventional loan, we can structure a variety of payment plans conducive to your cash flow, for example; no payments for 90 days, step up – step down, and seasonal payments. Our lease finance specialists are your best source for structuring a payment plan exclusive to your business needs and budget.
Guard Against Technological Obsolescenes
Advances in technology are made so quickly that today’s state-of-the-art equipment can become several generations old within a year. With an equipment lease, you transfer the risks of ownership and technological obsolescence to the lessor. Leasing allows you to acquire optimum technology without purchasing the assets and bearing the associated risks and costs.
Helps Manage the Balance Sheet
Leasing helps you manage your balance sheet as the asset and corresponding liability are “off balance sheet” and the entire monthly payment is expensed or treated as a budget item. You can potentially increase your borrowing capacity while improving key ratios such as return on assets and debt/equity.
Immediate Write-Off of the Dollars Spent
Lease Financing Options
Lease payments are treated as expenses on a company’s balance sheet (Please consult with your CPA for guidelines specific to your business.); therefore, equipment does not have to be depreciated over five to seven years.
Improve Your Cash Flow
The fixed nature of a lease eliminates the uncertainty about future cost of the equipment. Your lease payments facilitate more accurate forecasting and planning.
Off Balance Sheet Financing
Leases are not required to be reflected on a balance sheet as debt, making your company more attractive to potential lenders. Because an operating lease is not considered a long-term debt or liability, it does not appear as debt on your financial statement, thus making you more attractive to traditional lenders when you need them.
100% Financing
Leasing offers the advantage of 100 percent financing vs. conventional bank borrowing where large deposits, compensating balances and restrictive covenants may be required. Since a lease does not usually require a down payment, it is equivalent to 100 percent financing, which means that you will have more money to invest in revenue-generating activities.
Overcomes Budgetary Constraints
Leasing allows you to leverage your existing budget by avoiding large down payments. Small monthly expenses for leased equipment can fit into restrictive operating budgets.
Provides a Hedge Against Inflation
Lease payments are fixed, which holds the value of your dollar regardless of the effects of inflation. Buying equipment is significantly more costly, and diminishes the value of your dollar. Pay for today’s equipment with tomorrow’s money; future revenue which is generated by the use of the equipment.
Tax Advantages
Depending on the structure of the lease, your entire monthly payment including interest may be written off as a deduction for the whole term. The IRS does not consider an operating lease to be a purchase, but rather a tax-deduc
