Finance Lease

How does a finance lease work?

Preserve cash flow, know your costs upfront and reap tax benefits. All this while you enjoy immediate use of your financed asset. A finance lease has several key advantages for your business. Here is how it works.

  • Your lender purchases the asset on your behalf
  • You lease the asset from your lender through regular tax deductible* payments
    *Providing the equipment is used solely for earning assessable income

So your desired asset is yours to use and leverage for the finance lease period. The lender has the right to sell the equipment if they wish. Generally, however, in this circumstance you can purchase the equipment for the agreed value, this known as the residual value. The residual value is stipulated in the finance lease agreement.

The finance lease agreement explained

In a finance lease agreement, your lender is know as the leaser and you are know as the lessee. This formal agreement specifies the terms of your lease including the:

  • Residual value of the asset
  • Finance lease period
  • Monthly lease payments
  • Depreciation rates for tax purposes.

What happens when the finance lease expires?

There are some different alternatives available to you:

  • You can opt to refinance the residual value of the finance lease
  • The finance lease contract can be paid out in full
  • You can make an offer to purchase the asset.
