Managing Monthly Payments Before Your Equipment Produces Revenue

A reasonable concern I hear when talking to business owners is “How do I manage my monthly payment until I get my equipment in full production?” That’s a good question, and it worries a lot of business owners.

Adding a new piece of equipment can come with a lot of uncertainty. Whether you’re unfamiliar with the equipment or not sure how much revenue it will bring, you need answers. Fortunately, you have resources to fill in some gaps. A breakeven calculator is an effective tool for estimating how much monthly activity your business needs to generate in order to break even on your payment.

But what if you’re still unsure how you can manage that payment until you get your new equipment working? That’s when talking to your equipment financing consultant can help.

By discussing your business goals, Beacon Funding can help find a flexible financing option for your unique situation.

Give Your Business Time It Needs With a Deferred Payment

One possible solution to keep initial costs low is a deferred payment. This is a good option for equipment that needs installation and training time before it can start producing a positive revenue stream. Luckily, depending on your credit quality your business may qualify for deferred payments (sometimes known as a buy now, pay later plan). It’s a simple concept, but let’s walk through this example step-by-step.

The Problem: You have to train your employees on using your new equipment, and the demand for your new product or service has to build. Beacon Funding’s flexible financing option can give your business the time it needs to manage your new equipment.

The Solution: Let's say you're approved for 0% down 90-days no payments followed by 36 monthly payments of $1,300. Now if these terms work for your business, your contract would begin on the day you accepted the piece of equipment. Then your first payment of $1,300 would be due three full months after that day.

The Benefit: During those 90 days, you can train staff, build up demand, and earn revenue all payment free. This is where Beacon Funding’s flexible financing option enables your equipment to generate a positive revenue stream.

What a great way to start a new business venture!

You Have Help Getting Equipment You Need For Your Business

Now, not every business will qualify for 0% down 90-days no payments. But luckily, that’s not the only flexible financing plan that can offer relief in this situation. Regardless of your credit quality, talk to your financing consultant about your concerns.

If your business is looking to keep costs low to ramp up your business, your consultant may have tools to help. They can get creative and use other tools, such as 100% financing, skip payments, or step payments.
