Eight out of 10 companies lease some or all of their equipment, according to an industry study. Why do they lease? Because the flexibility that leasing offers allows them to operate as effectively as possible. Companies that lease tend to be the most entrepreneurial and competitive. What is financial leasing and why should you consider leasing?
What Is Financial Leasing?
Financial leasing with lease to own is a form of financing that allows businesses or individuals to purchase goods and services without having to pay the full cost upfront. It involves a financial institution, such as a bank or leasing company, providing the necessary funds for the purchase. The customer then pays back the lender in installments over an agreed-upon period of time, plus interest. At the end of this period, they may have the option to buy out the loan at its current market value. This is known as “lease to own” and can be beneficial for those who are unable to commit to a large up-front payment or don't have access to traditional financing options.
Benefits of Financial Leasing
Financial leasing is a popular financing option for businesses and individuals alike. It provides a range of tax benefits that make it an attractive option for many. These tax benefits can include deductions on interest payments, deductions on depreciation, and the ability to defer capital gains taxes. Additionally, financial leasing can provide the opportunity to claim bonus depreciation on certain assets. All of these tax advantages can help businesses and individuals save money and increase their bottom line.
- Accelerated tax benefits are structured based on your needs.
- True Tax Lease - Monthly payments may be deductible during the term of the lease.
- Section 179 - 100% of the equipment may be deductible in the year it is purchased.
Flexible Payment OptionsLessors offer flexible terms so you can tailor your lease to meet your needs and requirements - cash flow, budget, transaction structure, economic fluctuations, etc. Example options include:
- Customized terms for your individual needs.
- FMV leases, $1 buyout leases, 10% purchase option agreements.
- Seasonal payments.
- Reduced or step-up payments.
- No payments for 90 days.

Preserve working capitalYou'll find that leasing has a positive impact on your cash flow because you do not have to pay for equipment in one lump sum. A customized lease can save business owners cash so they can focus on growing their business. Leasing also allows you to more accurately predict your cash needs because you know the amount and number of lease payments you will owe during the lease term. In short:
- Maximize your cash flow.
- Lower monthly payments mean more cash and open lines of credit for future growth.
- Know exactly what your monthly equipment expenses are.
