Owning equipment does not generate a profit. The productive use of the equipment is what generates profits and having the best technology can increase a company’s productivity. Let the equipment pay for itself through its usage. The increased cash flow may then be used to generate additional profits and the fixed payments are a hedge against Inflation.
The following are just some of the reasons why a company should consider a lease or financing arrangement for any dollar amount of equipment over $10K (with no ceiling) through Merrimac Capital Services.
Various Types of Equipment - MCS will lease or finance New, Used (typically up to 10 yrs), Titled or Untitled equipment. A lease or finance arrangement gives you the most flexibility for equipment that’s either in the office, in a production facility or out in the field. When in doubt, give us a call.
100% Financing – Merrimac Capital Services can offer 100% financing of the equipment with no large deposit required (subject to credit approval).
Simple Application Process - A lease or financing arrangement can usually be pursued with just a simple one-page application on most transactions up to $150,000 for an established commercial business with good credit, comparable borrowing credit and time in business. Given this situation, financial statements and/or tax returns may not be required.
Conserves Working Capital - When cash isn't tied up in equipment, it’s free for other uses such as discounts for raw material, overhead expenses or expansion.
Tailored Programs - Typically, the payments are 'even' for the term of the contract. However, other programs such as seasonal payments, smaller payments up front, higher residuals, etc., can be explored.
Utilize Tax Advantages – Under certain circumstances lease payments are generally considered fully tax deductible versus a bank loan or a business can take advantage of Section 179 as stated in the 2013 Business Economic Stimulus Package or new Capital Equip. Initiatives.
Simplifies Budgeting - Financial projections are simple because the payments are always fixed for the term of the contract. They are NOT floating like with revolving financing.
Preserves Credit Lines - A financing program through us will allow a business to acquire the equipment without affecting their bank credit line. Plus, the debt will not show up on the customer’s credit bureau unless they are delinquent.
Blemished Credit - Not everyone has perfect credit, in fact most business people have received nicks and blemishes along the way, some more severe than others. We will consider those transactions that have prior BK's and outstanding liens on a deal by deal basis. Contact us for specifics on our credit requirements.
