Why Equipment Financing?

SME owners know that in order to make money, you need more money.

There are times when a business will require a certain equipment or machinery to increase their turnover.

How Do I Afford It?

This is an obstacle where business owners often encounter. This is where Capable Loans comes in to solve that issue.

This is how equipment financing can help you expand your business.

The Pros of Using Equipment as a Collateral

An equipment financing can be a wise choice when your business requires an equipment or machinery to grow.

Business owners can utilize equipment financing to acquire a great variety of business equipment, from office computers to vehicles.

The amount your business qualifies for is largely dependant on the nature of the equipment and whether if that piece of equipment pre-owned or brand new as the equipment acquired is acting as a collateral.

The whole idea behind this is relatively similar to a car loan.

The cost of the equipment generally sets the loan amount and tenure of the business’s equipment financing and there it is not necessary to put up a separate collateral.

Similar to a business loan, equipment financing is set at a fixed interest rate, usually between 5.2- 8% with the same fixed amount paid every month.

What Will Equipment Financing Cost You?

Equipment Financing Tenure

The tenure of the equipment loan is dependant on the equipment as well as its expected lifespan.

Financiers are usually reluctant to extend the tenure of the equipment loan further than the lifespan of the equipment that is being financed.

Sensibly, in the first place the financiers’ objective is to finance an asset that gives value to the business.

Difference Between Equipment Financing and Equipment Leasing

There is another alternative to equipment financing which is Equipment Leasing.

Sometimes, business owners will prefer to get an equipment lease rather than an equipment loan. There are some benefits if you lease, however with an equipment loan, you own the equipment after the loan is repaid.

In comparison with a lease where you get to utilise the equipment only if you are still paying for the lease.

If your business requires the equipment for a long time, it is recommended to take up an equipment financing, and if you just need to use the equipment for a short while then a lease is a more reasonable choice.
