Whether you like it or not more often than not we’re looking over our shoulder at the competition and what they are doing. Why not instead lead the stampede towards successful business equipment leasing and financing for the commercial finance needs you have in business equipment acquisition?
Well known business author Steven Covey (The 7 Habits …”) had a great line: ‘ Diagnose before you prescribe ‘. I guess we’re breaking his rule a teeny bit because we do strongly feel that business leasing and equipment financing should be in your toolkit already as a Canadian business owner or financial manager. And we don’t even know what your financial challenges or problems are… so that’s somewhat presumptuous of us… wouldn’t you say?
Over 80% of Canadian businesses lease assets – your competition is doing it today. Why are they stampeding toward this type of financing solution – simply because they are choosing not to purchase outright and tie up huge amounts of cash (relatively speaking) and use up that much required working capital that’s needed for daily operations.
Your competitors are focused on two things – selling more, and making a buck!
Bank term loans often require additional collateral and other covenants to make a financing transaction happen – Business equipment leasing financing doesn’t not do that, it’s a commercial finance alternative that makes sense.
Getting approved is always half the battle when we talk to clients about their finance challenges. If you have a solid financial history, good business credit, and all those financial ratios that a lender looks at you can achieve extremely low lease financing rates in the Canadian marketplace.
But, look at some of your competition – as a savvy business owner you probably know your market and competition, and they might not be doing as well as others out there might think. So how are they obtaining commercial finance leases that allow them to continue to move their companies forward?
The answer in one word – ‘structuring ‘. What’s that you say? It’s the term that the lease finance industry uses in Canada to make things happen – for you.
In simple terms it might mean that you might not be able to take advantage of all of the great advantages of equipment finance – things such as 100% financing, the financing of your taxes related to the asset, tailored payments, potential off balance sheet financing .. And on it goes. The benefits are endless.
But guess what, as we said, if your firm does have financial challenges there is still a lease finance transaction out there for you. Working with your best lessor choice will allow things such as a potential down payment, a shorter term to the transaction, etc to make your transaction happen – which is what it’s all about.
Your competitors are stampeding to their business asset financing of choice because they recognized the benefits, whether they are financing computers, software, plant assets, heavy machinery, you name it.
