Thanks for dropping in for some hopefully great business info and on occasion some hopefully not too sarcastic comments on the state of Business Financing in Canada and what we are doing about it !

In 2004 I founded 7 PARK AVENUE FINANCIAL. At that time I had spent all my working life, at that time - Over 30 years in Commercial credit and lending and Canadian business financing. I believe the commercial lending landscape has drastically changed in Canada. I believe a void exists for business owners and finance managers for companies, large and small who want service, creativity, and alternatives.

Every day we strive to consistently deliver business financing that you feel meets the needs of your business. If you believe as we do that financing solutions and alternatives exist for your firm we want to talk to you. Our purpose is simple: we want to deliver the best business finance solutions for your company.

Why Equipment Leasing In Canada Dominates The Acquisition Of Assets For Your Business : Right Choice 101

The Rise And Fall .. And Rise Of Equipment Leasing in Canada!

OVERVIEW – Information on basic financial fundamental reasons why Canadian business owners and financial managers choose lease equipment financing as a great financial strategy for new equipment, technology, etc , including examination of key benefits for business owners and financial mgrs

Equipment lease financing in Canada has business owners and financial mgrs constantly coming back for asset acquisition alternatives.

So as business credit continues to always be a challenge it's no secret that equipment loan needs are on the rise. Simply speaking its
one of the best alternative methods of acquiring equipment in a very cost effective manner!
We use the term equipment, but let’s be clear that that term includes every business asset you can imagine for Canadian business needs - that includes

Construction equipment



Telecom assets

Software (Yes Virginia software can be financed!)

Plant machinery and equipment

Bottom line: virtually any asset you can utilize in your business.

For many of our customers it's all about a ‘competitive 'lease rate (well actually they ask for the best rate!) but we often point out that while every customer is due a competitive rate based on their overall credit quality, it is equally as important to ensure you have the right type of lease selected, the right term or length of lease, as well as the expertise in structuring your lease along the lines of your business model and financial and cash flow needs.
Example: A ' seasonal ' businesses - that isn't necessarily related to the weather all the time, it’s just the ebb and flow of their particular industry, for example a wholesale that has huge orders and contracts from a major retailer at Christmas time, etc.

Our customer are often surprised at the nuances that we can structure in a lease, such as seasonal payments, quarterly payments , sometimes even annual payments . In most cases it is not uncommon to finance all the taxes, plus the installation and maintenance relating to the equipment. (Think computing technology or sophisticated shop floor equipment).

Our customers know they have a need for the equipment. What they want is of course the equipment and the ability to preserve their capital, either their cash on hand or working capital by way of their bank operating line or asset based lending facility.

There are many financial/accounting advantages to business leasing. Lease payments more often than not are tax deductible, so they have further advantages over term loans obtained via banks or other financial institutions.

Key point: It's always good to do some solid lease versus buy versus loan analysis to determine what the right way to acquire a business asset is.

SUMMARY: there are financial benefits and overall business benefits based on the proper use of leasing. Seek out and speak to a trusted, credible and experienced Canadian business financing advisor who can assist you with your asset purchase needs. That’s a winning Canadian financing strategy!
