Running a business already requires an enormous amount of capital. You’ll need money for operational expenses, labor, rent, inventory, and utilities, just to name a few. More importantly, if your business requires certain machinery or equipment, you’ll need to set aside a large amount money to buy or rent the equipment.
With an equipment financing loan, lenders can finance a business’s purchase of required equipment for the company, such as commercial kitchen equipment for a restaurant. Unlike other types of business loans, these loans are strictly for the use of purchasing equipment for the business.
Equipment financing is also more secure than other types of business loans since the purchased equipment also serves as collateral for the loan. Should the business default on the loan, the lender will acquire the purchased equipment to make up for any losses. However, when the business pays off the entire loan, then the business will officially own the equipment.
Since an equipment financing loan is secured by a purchased asset, lenders are more lenient when it comes to the loan’s requirements. Business owners who don’t qualify for other types of business loans can try qualifying for an equipment financing loan since the terms of the loan are more flexible.
Most businesses end up tying all of their free capital to new equipment purchases and repairs, not realizing their is a cheaper alternative. Some business owners are only looking for a temporary solution, so they choose to go with equipment leasing instead of buying the equipment. Others lease the equipment simply because they don’t have enough money to buy it outright.
When you lease equipment, you are renting it. This means that you will only be able to use the equipment while you are paying for it. The biggest advantage with leasing is that it doesn’t require any money down or collateral. However, leasing equipment could end up being more expensive than just purchasing the machinery in the beginning.
With equipment financing, Opportunity Business Loans gives you the loan you need to purchase equipment or machinery for your business. You can use the equipment while making loan payments and, once the loan is paid off, you get to keep the equipment. This is the most popular option of our Equipment Funding Program.
We have equipment financing and leasing options for businesses in all industries. If you are interested in upgrading your services through new equipment, give our financial advisors a call today.
Opportunity Business Loans offers 4 different options through our Equipment Funding Program. If you don't know which option fits your business needs best, give us a call. We will be able to secure the funding you need through a loan that makes the most sense for your individual wants and needs.
With Two Party Transaction Equipment Financing, the borrower holds the legal title to the equipment and enters a contract with the lender to repay the principal balance.
In this case, Opportunity Business Loans will give you a lump sum to purchase new equipment for upgrade current equipment. The equipment will be used as collateral to secure the loan until it is completely paid off.
Once the loan is paid in full, you will be able to continue to use the equipment.
With a Capital Lease, the lender holds the title to the equipment and rents the equipment to the borrower for a specific period of time at a fixed monthly payment.
In this case, Opportunity Business Loans will provide you with the needed capital to purchase or upgrade business equipment. We will hold the equipment’s title until the loan is paid off but you get to continue using the equipment while making payments.
Once the loan is paid off, we will return the title to you and you can continue using the equipment.
In the case of an Operating Lease, the lender holds the title of the equipment and rents it out to the borrower for a specific period of time at a fixed monthly payment. The difference between this and a Capital Lease is that the borrower doesn’t own the equipment at the end of the lease.
When the loan is paid off, the equipment’s Fair Market Value (FMV) will be calculated. Then, you will have the following options:
In a Sale Leaseback, the lender will purchase and lease the equipment back to the borrower. Essentially, you would use your business’ current equipment as collateral on a loan to purchase new equipment.
Then, once the loan is paid off, you will continue to own both the old and the new equipment. You can still use the old equipment while making payments on the loan.
In this case, you use your current assets as leverage to purchase more assets. Instead of paying for the new assets up front, you will make monthly payments. This helps to free up cash flow.
There are multiple ways that you can use your new Equipment Loan to cover new equipment purchases and upgrades.
There are multiple benefits that come with financing your equipment through Opportunities Business Loans.
