Question: Is it easy to get lease pricing for my potential equipment purchase?

Answer: Absolutely. Your FTG Account Executive can easily provide you leasing options for a potential equipment purchase. The pricing contained within the FTG lease proposal can be used for budgetary purposes as your evaluate your options. If your interested in pursuing a lease option, your FTG Account Executive will connect you with one of our financing partners and help coordinate a firm proposal.

Question: Is it better for my business to own the equipment as an asset instead of leasing?

Answer: Typically the use of your equipment or technology (and not the ownership of the asset) produces benefit to your business. Profits are not realized by owned equipment, but rather by the work product derived from its use. Financing allows your business to pay for the equipment as the revenue (or productivity benefits) resulting from the use of the equipment are realized, not before.

Question: Can I have multiple manufactures equipment and/or multiple technologies within the lease?

Answer: Yes. Each of our finance partners can provide you options to include installation services or another manufacturer’s equipment. These lease options typically include minimum/maximum thresholds for equipment and services.

Question: Will I be taxed on the equipment purchase?

Answer: The lessee will pay the taxes one way or another. Though the lessee is responsible for the taxes, the actual payment is typically made by the lessor (who is reimbursed by the lessee).

Question: If we choose a Fair Market Value lease, what will the value of the equipment be at the end of the Lease?

Answer:At the end of an FMV lease term, you may purchase the equipment, return the equipment to the finance company, or continue to pay for use of the equipment according to the terms of the original agreement. The FMV purchase price may depend upon many factors such as how quickly new technologies have advanced, the price for those new capabilities, the condition and usage levels of the leased equipment, and the used equipment market demand for that particular equipment. The fair market value of the equipment will be determined by the market.

Question: Why is it called “Fair Market Value (FMV)” instead of a predetermined fixed value?

Answer: The IRS has guidelines for a “true lease” and requires the lease contain a fair market value buyout option. There could be tax consequences if the purchase option were guaranteed. An FMV lease offers the lowest monthly payment, is the most flexible lease structure, and may allow you to obtain tax advantages. The equipment may not be considered an asset on your balance sheet. Depending upon your situation, up to 100% of the finance expense may be tax deductible. This treatment can improve finance ratios such as return on assets.

Question: Will I be taxed on the purchase?

Answer: The lessee is responsible for all taxes, but the actual payment to the taxing authority is made by the lessor, who is reimbursed by the lessee.

Question: Can I include installation services within the lease?

Answer: Yes. Our finance partners can provide more detail on the services ratios/thresholds after reviewing your specific project/solution.
