Let's get you going on both the inside track and the fast track! Let's start with a typical situation many of our clients find themselves in. Business isn't bad, but it isn't great. You see the potential to significantly grow revenues and profits with the addition of new equipment. This new equipment gives you the opportunity to grow.

Where do business owners go when they need such financing. Typically most owners consider Canadian chartered banks. If you can achieve bank term loan financing and can support your transaction with strong financial statements and good personal credit that is a viable option.

However, many business owners find themselves ' cash poor ' and not always able to meet more stringent bank criteria. Enter equipment leasing companies! Your best bet for financing / leasing long term assets.
