Equipment Lease Details

Asset Lease is a commercial loan product which is structured for businesses wanting an off balance sheet option. It can be used by all types of businesses: owner-operator contractors, small to medium operations and large fleet businesses.

  • By definition, the lender essentially purchases the used or new equipment, and then under a lease finance agreement, leases it to the borrower for a fixed lease term.
  • The borrower has full use of that equipment for the term of the loan. The lender holds title/ownership.
  • Because the lender holds ownership, the equipment appears on their company balance sheet as an asset/liability.
  • The equipment does not appear on the borrowing company’s balance sheet.
  • Equipment Lease is available for the purchase of new and used equipment.
