When you run business operations, there are abound to be situations which cause expenses and you will need finance to carry out operations smoothly. One option available to you is sale leaseback, wherein you sell the equipment that you own and then rent it back for running your business operations. This works out to be highly profitable because you can reduce so many types of expenses, plus get enough money to meet business expenses.
Most often we buy equipment on a loan, wherein there is a loan plus interest repayment every month till the loan period finishes. Once this period is over, sell the equipment and the lease it out to, paying a rental amount this is equal to the amount you would have paid as monthly loan installment plus interest. Here is a look at the benefits of sales leaseback:
*You will be able to get the finance needed to expand your business, buy a new equipment or invest in a better opportunity
*The money can be used to pay debt
*Since you will be leasing the equipment, the rental payment done for it can deducted from income tax as a legitimate business expense
However in order to sell the equipment and then rent it you need to approach a sale and leaseback financing company.
In order to get the finance from them you would have to provide some supportive documents such as a paid invoice or a canceled check. If you are unable to provide these, you have to give a certified appraisal of the equipment. Once this is done money will be provided for the value of the asset. With this money, you can carry out various plans to expand your business or enhance it. Since you would be requiring the equipment for running operations lease it out for rental charge which should be paid every month.
In order to get the desired amount of funds from a sales leaseback you need to approach the right lender. The lender should be someone specializing in such financing. Furthermore, the lease rates should be reasonable so that you can bear it and run your business smoothly. Look into the sale and leaseback financing terms to see if it is suitable for your business environment and only then accept the leaseback financing.
