Benefits of Commercial Equipment/Software Leasing

Why Lease?

Nearly 80% of U.S. businesses lease equipment, and more than 30% of capital equipment is acquired through lease financing. Vehicle and equipment leasing delivers these key benefits:

  • Increase monthly cash flow with low fixed-rate financing instead of one large payment
  • Capital saved on purchasing equipment enables capital to be used for payroll and vendors
  • Gain potential tax deductions (ask your tax advisor for details)
  • Match timing of payments to earning of revenues
  • Lease items that depreciate in value and own those that appreciate in value


Commercial Equipment Lease Types

Below are the various end of lease options to choose from. The choice you make will determine your payment size, what happens to the equipment at the end of the lease, your annual business taxes and ultimately your cash flows. Your choices are:

Fair Market Value (aka FMV Lease)

  • Most widely used lease option
  • Offers lowest monthly payment of all lease types
  • Generally provides 90 to 100% financing
  • Offers tax and balance sheet advantages (consult your tax advisor)
  • Flexible end-of-term lease


Fixed Price Purchase Option (aka FPPO)

  • Generally the same terms and conditions as the FMV
  • May have slightly higher monthly payments than the FMV lease but lower than a Capital Lease
  • Generally provides 90 to 100% financing
  • Flexible end-of-term options
  • Purchase equipment for the preset purchase price of 10% of the original equipment cost
  • Continue to pay month-to-month until decision is reached
  • Return the equipment


$1.00 Purchase Option (aka Capital Lease)

  • Generally provides 90 to 100% financing
  • Defined path-to-equipment ownership
  • May be able to deduct all or part of your purchase under section 179 of the Internal Revenue Code (consult your tax advisor)
