What is equipment financing?

Equipment financing is a type of business financing specifically intended to be used for business equipment. The term “equipment” includes virtually any physical item a business uses in the course of its operations, so it can be used for things like furniture, computers, ovens, vehicles, medical equipment, construction equipment, and other highly-specialized tools, just to name a few.

Types of equipment financing

Many different types of loans can be used to cover equipment purchases, including merchant cash advancesinvoice financing, and microloans. If you are a small business owner, another option you may want to consider is an SBA loan. Funds from 7(a) loans, which are backed by the SBA, can be used for a wide variety of business expenses, including purchasing equipment. Businesses who are looking to make larger investments or purchase particularly expensive pieces of equipment may be interested in another type of SBA loan called a CDC/504 loan.

The difference between equipment financing and equipment leasing

The terms “equipment financing” and “equipment leasing” are sometimes used interchangeably, but be aware they aren’t exactly the same things. Equipment financing allows you to own the equipment at the end of the term, but with equipment leasing, you simply make monthly payments for the ability to use the equipment for a set amount of time. This makes leasing a more cost-effective option for equipment you only have a temporary need for or would become obsolete by the time it’s paid off. Equipment financing is better suited for equipment that is crucial to your long-term business operations.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of equipment financing?

Commercial equipment loans are a great way to make big purchases on essential business machinery. They lighten the financial load of an outright purchase, allowing you to invest in the future of your business without taking a big hit to your cash flow.

Still, you may be wondering: Is a small business equipment loan right for me?

  • Doesn’t require a minimum credit score or annual revenue to qualify.
  • Allows you to purchase essential equipment you otherwise couldn’t afford.
  • Has favourable interest rates, repayment terms, and total loan terms when compared to alternatives.
  • Easier to qualify for equipment financing because your new machinery is the collateral.
  • Save money by listing equipment financing as a tax deduction under Section 179.
  • This type of financing is strictly for equipment.
  • If you can no longer afford to pay the loan, the equipment gets collected as collateral.
  • Equipment that needs frequent replacing may increase debt.
  • If your equipment is prone to obsolescence, better opt for equipment leasing.

FAQs about small business equipment loan financing

What types of business equipment can I finance?

Almost without exception, any equipment needed for the operation of your small business can be financed.

Some commonly financed items include:

  • Medical equipment and devices
  • Construction or industrial equipment
  • Carpentry workbenches and tools
  • Commercial grade kitchen appliances
  • Office furniture
  • Computer software for operations use
  • Devices for office or business use
  • Company vehicles used for transporting goods or employees
  • Food trucks
  • Farm machinery

Can I finance used equipment for my business?

The short answer is yes. But keep in mind that the lender gets the final say.

In the event that you default on your loan payments, the lender will repossess the equipment for liquidation.

Most lenders prefer new or like-new equipment, as it has less wear-and-tear and hasn’t depreciated as much.

What do I need for the equipment financing process?

In assessing your loan amount and loan eligibility, online lenders and equipment financing companies may ask you for several of the following documents:

  • Business credit score/credit history
  • Personal credit score
  • Financial statements
  • Business plan
  • Tax history
  • Information about the equipment to be financed (new/used, age, type of equipment, lifetime value, etc.)

What is the difference between equipment financing and leasing?

Equipment leasing and equipment financing both allow you to access the equipment you need while paying for the asset over its lifetime.

Equipment leasing permits you to rent business equipment from your vendor for a monthly payment while equipment loans allow you to fully own the asset once you have repaid your loan.
