Business Equipment Leasing

Virtually every company relies on technology, equipment and other types of materials to keep business moving forward. You may need machines for your manufacturing plant, furniture and computers for your office, industrial kitchen equipment for your restaurant or other materials for your specific industry. Many businesses choose to lease rather than own when it comes to these types of needs.

Financing equipment allows your business to stay competitive without impeding cash flow. As a business banking leader in the local community, Centric Bank is here to help with your commercial equipment leasing needs.

To understand how leasing can fit your financial goals, contact Centric Bank at 888.274.2033, visit your nearest Financial Center, or connect with a banker online. All credit is subject to approval.

What are the Benefits of Equipment Financing?

Whether you need computers for your design business or shelving for a retail space, you have the option of buying new or used equipment — or leasing. Buying allows you to have an asset you can liquidate at a later point. Leasing your equipment  comes with its own benefits:

Leasing can help you fund necessary equipment. In many cases, purchasing all the equipment and supplies you need to start a business or to expand your company can be overwhelming. Your budget simply may not allow for the purchases. For startups, capital equipment leasing spreads out the cost and monthly payments, making it easier to afford what you need.

Leasing lets you keep technology up to date. In most industries, companies need the latest equipment to stay competitive. When you lease equipment, flexible terms allow you to upgrade when needed so you’re not stuck with equipment that becomes obsolete, and your business stays on the cutting-edge of your industry.

Leasing helps you manage cash flow. With leasing, you don't have to invest a significant amount of money into equipment or technology up front. With monthly costs instead, it's easier to manage cash flow.

Leasing works to preserve working capital and credit lines. When you utilize leasing for your equipment needs, credit lines and working capital remain available for other overhead costs.

When you need to decide between buying and leasing, carefully consider your business needs and costs. Leasing can be more flexible and can help free up cash flow. Purchasing may offer you an asset (albeit a depreciating asset), but it requires a larger upfront investment.
