How does Equipment Financing work?

Equipment Financing is a loan used for businesses to purchase equipment. Most equipment loans require the equipment to be an essential need for the business. Essential use equipment is used to run the day to day operations of the business. For a construction company, this could be scaffolding or an excavator. The essential use of equipment for an event rental company might be tables or chairs.

How do you get Equipment Financing?

You need a business entity or DBA in order to get equipment financing. There is a wide range of equipment financing programs available. The qualification process varies between programs. Most equipment financing programs look at these factors.

Equipment Financing Qualifying Factors

  • Shareholder Credit
  • Time in Business
  • Business Credit
  • Collateral
  • Revenue

Shareholder Credit: This is one of the most important factors. New businesses with poor FICO scores typically will not get approved for an equipment loan. Unless they are putting down a very high down payment or they have additional collateral to use.

Time in Business: Anything under two years' time in business is considered high risk from an equipment financing perspective. This is because equipment financing is tied to businesses and a business that is two years or less time in business is statistically considered higher risk. In order to get equipment financing under two years' time in business, the shareholders must have very strong credit. After two years' time in business Shareholder credit can be average in order to get approved for equipment loans.

Collateral: Hard asset type equipment typically has some more flexibility in regards to the shareholder credit score. Examples of hard assets are yellow iron, construction equipment, titled vehicles etc.

Revenue: For larger equipment financing transactions revenue becomes an important factor. For equipment financing transactions under 50,000 revenue is not as important.

 

How long can you Finance Equipment?

Equipment Financing Terms Range from 1 to 7 years or 12 to 84 months. The term length typically matches the useful life of the equipment, which varies by the type of equipment being purchased. Heavy assets such as construction equipment will have the longest terms whereas hardware and software may be capped 36 months.
