FAQ: Equipment Financing
Equipment financing is the process of obtaining business equipment using a loan or lease. Equipment financing loans allow you to purchase the equipment with payments made over time, similar to using an auto loan to buy a personal car. Equipment leasing, on the other hand, gets you the equipment you need without the intention of owning it. You’ll make a regular lease payment to continue using the equipment as if it were your own. When the lease is up, you can give the equipment back or renew the lease. Sometimes you may have options for purchasing the equipment at the end of the lease.
Equipment financing works by providing you with the equipment your business needs for a periodic payment which includes interest. After the set term of months for your loan or lease is over, you’ll either own your equipment outright or will need to make a decision about your lease. Generally, you can renew your lease if the equipment is in good condition and still helpful to your business. You can finance almost any type of major equipment your business needs to run smoothly, expand and maintain competitiveness.
Securing financing for business equipment might seem daunting. If you try to get a loan from a traditional lender like a bank or credit union, it can be. Depreciation on equipment usually makes traditional lenders wary of lending large sums for businesses to purchase equipment.
However, alternative lenders usually provide customized financing solutions for your equipment needs. At National Funding, we can help you design an equipment loan or lease program for business equipment up to $150,000. We don’t require a down payment and our equipment financing is available for new or pre-owned equipment.
You may be able to finance equipment for a short period of time or even as long as a decade plus. The specific length of your equipment financing term depends on several factors. If you’re purchasing expensive equipment with a loan, you may need to make payments for several years. On the other hand, if you’re leasing equipment with a fast depreciation, you may only want to lease it for a couple of years.
Many business owners find they can save money both on the cost of business equipment and taxes by financing equipment and taking the Section 179 deduction. Using the Section 179 deduction in combination with equipment financing can have added value. If your equipment qualifies, you could save money now on your taxes by deducting up to 100% of your equipment cost. You’ll also be protecting your cash reserves by making periodic payments for the equipment instead of purchasing outright. Depending on the equipment, combining financing with the Section 179 deduction could greatly help your bottom line.
Financing your heavy equipment is a great way to make expensive machinery and tools more affordable for your business. You can finance heavy equipment by using a purchasing loan or equipment lease. To start the financing process, you’ll need to find a lender and apply for financing. You may have more difficulty getting equipment financed through banks or other traditional lenders. An alternative lender like National Funding offers higher approval rates and customized financing options tailored to your business needs.
Running a farm or custom application business is hard work, and having the proper equipment in good repair is absolutely essential to success. Luckily, it’s easier than ever to secure financing for farm equipment like tractors, combines or sprayers. By working with an alternative lender, you’ll have a higher chance of your application being approved. At National Funding, we have experience setting up customized farm equipment lease and loan programs for farms of all sizes. Apply today to get started financing farm equipment.

(6) Guaranteed lowest payment:
Pursuant to the terms and conditions specified in these Rules and Restrictions of the Guaranteed Lowest Payment, National Funding guarantees to provide the lowest payment on equipment leased through National Funding, for lease terms from 24 to 60 months, or to pay $1000 towards qualifying executed leases. Lease payment comparisons must be based on a lease in excess of $10,000, for approved equipment, and with the same terms and conditions as those offered by National Funding within seven days that the National Funding terms are issued. To be eligible, customers must provide a competitive lease quote without contingencies, and vendor invoice, and in the name of the lessee within seven calendar days of the date National Funding issues its terms. Guarantee only valid on competitive equipment leases. Equipment finance agreements do not qualify.
In the event that the monthly lease payment amount from the competing lease company or bank is lower than the monthly payment that is being offered by National Funding for the same equipment and pursuant to the same terms, National Funding will verify the validity and accuracy of the competing leasing company’s or bank’s payment options, terms and the vendor quote. National Funding has the option, in its sole discretion, to either beat the competing leasing company’s or bank’s monthly payment rate, or pay $1000 to the lessee. The lessee must provide National Funding with the competing company’s or bank’s signed lease agreement with payment terms/options, and take delivery of the equipment. Payments will be made within 30 days, and lessee is responsible for any taxes.
The Guaranteed Lowest Payment is available to both new and established customers of National Funding. This offer is valid for new lease applications only. The Guaranteed Lowest Payment is not retroactive — a previously funded equipment lease with National Funding is not eligible for the Guaranteed Lowest Payment. Only non-contingent offers of lease terms and payment are eligible. Offers made to lessee that include subsidization by manufacturers and/or vendors will not be considered in comparing competing offers.
The Guaranteed Lowest Payment may be discontinued at any time without notice.
To participate in the Guaranteed Lowest Payment program, if you have a lease agreement and vendor quote which you believe will qualify for the program, contact your National Funding Lease Manager.
