Benefits of Equipment Financing
Convenience / Speed
An equipment lease/finance transaction in many cases can be executed and completed in less time than traditional financing alternatives.
Conservation of Capital
Leasing doesn't require the cash outlay for large equipment purchases and can be used to overcome budget limitations. Existing cash position and lines of credit remain free and liquid for other working capital needs that have higher ROE and or ROA metrics.
A lease can be structured either on or off balance sheet. As an expense, lease payments reduce tax liability and can be structured to qualify as an operating lease under FASB 13 for financial reporting purposes. The choice depends on your accounting objective and other cost trade-offs that you are willing to make in order to achieve your strategic objectives.
