Overall Costs Between Leasing and Financing

Key Comparisons Between Leasing and Financing

When looking at financing and leasing in a side-by-side comparison, there are key differences that make each product unique.

1. Equipment Finance Agreement (EFA): The lender would be the lean holder, as opposed to the owner.

2. Commercial Equipment Lease Agreement: A lease-to-own product usually comes with significant tax advantages and savings. It has the same goal of ownership with an “earn as you pay” structure.
