Municipal Leases

A Municipal Lease is a simple, cost-effective way to finance 100% of your equipment cost. You’ll lock into a fixed rate and set payment that will not change, simplifying your budget. A lease is a full payout contract, with no surprises at the end of the lease. The interest from the lease is tax-exempt. This tax-exempt savings gets passed on to the municipality in the form of a lower interest rate. Leases are quick and easy to finalize, allowing you to keep your business operation moving!
