Your equipment leasing, buying, and borrowing checklist

Ken Canavan

By: , Account Manager

You’ve pored over your equipment options for your business. It only makes sense that you’re just as diligent when choosing how you’ll pay for it.

After all, your choice will affect your cash flow, line of credit and future equipment upgrade needs.

Rather than darting from online financial resource to resource, we’ve created a checklist to help weigh your acquisition options so you can choose the best option that matches your financing needs.

Checklist that compares an equipment purchase, loan and lease

Making the right choice

Buying is simple and will preserve lines of credit but requires a substantial upfront investment that may empty your cash reserves. A bank loan solves your cash flow issue but affects your line of credit, has a lengthy approval process, and its contract terms may limit your opportunity to include equipment add-ons or upgrades in the future. With equipment leasing, you’ll match payments to your revenue cycle (you even have an option to delay payments on your equipment), preserve lines of credit, and easily upgrade your equipment once your lease is finished.

Whichever option you choose, make sure it aligns with your business goals and helps grow your business.
