Medical equipment lease offer your patients the best
Medical equipment lease allows you to maintain a state-of-the-art health care facility. This minimizes transfers to other, better equipped, facilities for diagnosis and treatment. Lease the latest in MRI, X-Ray, lab equipment, examination tables, and more.
Here is why leasing is superior to standard purchase loan financing.
Loan: Requires the end user to invest a down payment in the equipment. The loan finances the remaining amount.
Lease: Requires no down payment and finances only the value of the equipment expected to be depleted during the lease term. The lessee usually has an option to buy the equipment for its remaining value at lease end.
Loan: Usually requires the borrower to pledge other assets for collateral.
Lease: The leased equipment itself is usually all that is needed to secure a lease transaction.
Loan: End user bears all the risk of equipment devaluation because of new technology.
Lease: The end user transfers all risk of obsolescence back to the lessor, as there is no obligations to own equipment at the end of the lease.
Loan: End users may claim a tax deduction for a portion of the loan payment as interest and for depreciation that is tied to IRS depreciation schedules.
Lease: When leases are structured as true leases, the end user may claim the entire lease payment as a tax deduction.
Loan: A larger portion of the financial obligation is paid in today’s more expensive dollars.
Lease: More of the cash flow, especially the option to purchase the equipment, occurs later in the lease term when inflation makes dollars cheaper.
