Equipment Loans or $1 Purchase Option Lease

The $1 purchase option lease and equipment loans are structures by which equipment purchases are financed on a fixed rate. The Lessee/Borrower retains the ownership of the equipment. This is a good option for equipment with a long useful life and the equipment may be depreciated on your balance sheet.

Terminal Rental Adjustment Clause (TRAC) Lease

A TRAC lease is designed for commercial over-the-road vehicles and trailers. At the end of the lease, the vehicle is sold (to the lessee or a third party) for a predetermined residual value. This is a good option for businesses that want to buy the vehicle for a predetermined price at the end of the lease.

Operating Lease

The lessor owns the equipment and leases it for a term usually between 36 and 84 months. This lease may provide the lessee with off-balance sheet financing if it meets accounting criteria. At the end of the term, the lessee may return the equipment to the lessor or re-lease it for another specified term.

Lease Purchase/Finance Lease

A lease in which equipment can be purchased for a predetermined price upon lease expiration. This may be structured with either purchase options or purchase agreements and depreciation benefits are typically transferred to the lessee.

Walk-Away /Closed End Lease

A Walk-Away lease is where the customer leases a vehicle for a specified period of time. At the end of the lease the customer must return the equipment to the dealer. The customer may have the option to re-lease the vehicle, but they need contact the dealer and bank before the lease is up to discuss this option.
