Many businesses use equipment leasing today to acquire equipment, and almost any type of equipment qualifies for a lease. If your business is considering a lease for equipment, talk to your business banker about the common sense options available.
Leasing Through Port Washington State Bank
Unlike other traditional leasing companies, we never charge termination or prepayment penalties should you need flexibility during the term of your lease. In addition, coordinating all your banking and equipment financing activity with one bank is convenient and saves you valuable time.
A tax lease is structured to provide the leasing company with equipment ownership, and along with it all depreciation benefits. In return, your lease payments are fully deductible. The documentation for a tax lease is designed to conform to all related guidelines.
Capital Lease (Also Known as a Finance Lease)
A capital lease is structured to pass all ownership benefits to you, including depreciation. Only the interest portion of your lease payment is deductible, along with your depreciation expense. Such leases commonly have a $1.00 purchase option at expiration.
For counsel and guidance, we recommend you discuss your specific situation with your tax advisor to assess which lease best fits your needs.
The popularity and growth in leasing is in large part due to the wide variety of available lease options. These include:
- 100% Financing;?No Down Payment Required
- Variable Payment Terms for Seasonal Customers
- Most Leases Can Be Structured to Meet Tax Objectives
- Fixed Rate for the Lease Term
