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.

Cash Flow Restricting Your Growth? Let business Equipment Financing And Leasing Of Industrial Assets Do The Job

Can you count them? How many times have you felt your ability to grow your company with additional sales and profits was restricted by inability to obtain business equipment financing and leasing for industrial and other types of equipment? If you're one of the lucky ones that survived the 2008-2009 recession and your business is growing again (or surviving?!) let equipment financing and leasing move your business forward.

The scope of leasing for industrial and other types of business equipment is broad, and that’s an understatement. Canada's largest corporations utilize lease finance, and even small entrepreneurial start ups can utilize all the advantages of this type of Canadian business financing.

Most business owners and financial managers in Canada prefer certainty when it comes to business financing. Equipment financing and leasing brings that predictability. Why is that? Simply because if you have chosen your asset properly (we’ll leave that one up to you) and matched the asset with the right type of business equipment financing then you have just succeeded in closely matching the cost and cash outlays to the benefits you will receive from the asset - whether that be high end industrial equpment or the latest computer or telecom technology.

Again we come back to restrictions you face on acquiring those assets. And this time the evil doer is ' the budget ‘. In talking to clients about lease finance and their strategies they employ they are often stymied by the budget cycle. Again, this applies to every type of corporation, large and small, it’s just that the big boys probably have a bit better handle on the planning and documentation around a budget.

But does budgeting have to restrict your success. We don’t think so, and that’s why equipment leasing comes to your rescue. When your company budget doesn’t not allow for either the size of an asset or the timing of the acquisition to work the way you want it to then business equipment leasing should become the solution of choice.

Why? It doesn't get any simpler. You can acquire assets of a significantly higher size by focusing on monthly payment and not total expenditure, and there are tens of ways you can adjust payments to reflect beating that budget. Payments can be temporarily deferred, lowered in earlier term of the lease, and if you choose an operating lease then your asset doesn’t even get impacted by the budget cycle. That’s because the monthly lease payment is treated as an operating expense within your operating budget.

In summary, it’s a battle out there, and you shouldn’t let your competitors win the asset acquisition battle because your firm didn’t take advantage of the flexibility of business equpment financing. Whether your obstacle to innovation is cash flow, budget cycle, asset dollar value, etc we think we have shown that you now have the ' tool kit ' to combat the business growth challenges you face in acquiring assets.
