A capital lease has the characteristics of a purchase agreement in being able to use the equipment while having little or no upfront costs and more manageable fixed payments ( see Benefits of Leasing ).
An operating lease has the characteristics of a rental agreement while giving you (Lessee) the right to claim 100% of the lease payments as a deduction* ( see Benefits of Leasing ).
Working capital is a type of loan with no specific designation as to the purpose of use. It gives you the freedom to allocate funds at your discretion.
A master lease structure allows you to obtain additional equipment under the original lease contract agreed to without having to renegotiate a new contract.
A sale leaseback involves the sale of your equipment to the lessor and the subsequent lease of the same equipment back to you, in turn freeing up capital.
The account receivable financing program assists you in enhancing the benefits of any outstanding receivables thus improving cash flow.
Leasing with First Financial is efficient and practical.
Leasing is one of the fastest growing ways of acquiring equipment in business today. Recent surveys found that 80% of U.S. businesses lease at least some portion of their equipment and the companies that choose leasing range from the largest Fortune 500 firms to the local family business. A growing business often faces the dilemma of limited cash flow and the need to add equipment. Leasing can put that equipment to work for you with real cash flow advantages without major capital investment.
By making monthly payments, businesses can pay for the equipment with the improved cash flow generated from their new technology. Leasing affords a variety of options to match payment terms to business cash flow, whether cash flow is project-based, seasonal or related to expansion, etc.
Leasing allows you to match payment plans to the equipment’s expected useful life. Leasing provides flexibility at the end of the term to allow you to either take ownership of the equipment or walk away and acquire new technology. The result is a managed solution that allows business to maintain the most current technology.
You may be able to write off 100% of your lease payments from your corporate income because the IRS generally does not consider an operating lease to be a purchase. Please consult your accountant for the exact application for your business.
Leasing typically does not require a large down payment. You can finance up to 100% of the equipment cost. In many cases, service, supplies, installation, warranty and other soft costs can be included in the lease. This gives you more money to invest in other revenue-generating activities and makes it easier to afford multiple products.
In most cases, First Financial can approve businesses for up to $250,000 in equipment lease financing with a one page credit application. Approval can usually be secured in less than 24 hours.
Preserve cash and bank line by using equipment leasing as an alternative form of financing specifically for capital equipment. Use this financing option to maximize liquidity and access to capital by preserving cash and bank lines for other business needs.
A variety of leasing products are available, allowing you to tailor a program to fit your business needs. So whether you are looking for programs fit for expanding your business or a product that consolidates your multiple leases into one, First Financial’s featured solutions are customized to fit your needs.
