Why Lease Equipment with Standard Capital

Today, eight out of 10 American companies lease some or all of their needed equipment. Standard Capital offers many different financing options- equipment leasing, equipment and working capital loans, SBA or MCA loans, lines of credit and more. 


Leasing is flexible

Companies have different needs, different cash flow patterns, different - sometimes irregular - streams of income. For example, start-up companies typically are characterized by little cash and limited debt lines. Mature companies might have other needs; to keep debt lines free, to comply with debt covenants, and to avoid committing to equipment that may quickly become obsolete. Therefore, your business conditions - cash flow, specific equipment needs and tax situation, may help define the terms of your lease, and Standard Capital can help you to figure out which financing options work best for your business. Moreover, a lease provides the use of equipment for specific periods of time at fixed rental payments. Therefore, leasing allows you to be more flexible in the management of your equipment. Standard Capital can offer leases and loans and can show you the details of what either option would look like with terms for each.

Leases can be a great way to avoid the politics and lengthy approval process of a board of directors generally leases do not need the approval from a hospital or health clinic's board of directors as a traditional loan would- making it a better choice for acquiring new equipment for some clinics and hospitals. Leases can also be more appealing to some businesses as it can allow for lower payments in certain situations.

Leasing has tax advantages

Rather than deal with depreciation schedules and Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) problems, you, the lessee, simply make the lease payment and deduct it as a business expense. The entire payment amount can be deducted on your taxes with a loan or an equipment finance agreement only the interest can be deducted.
