Build your business with Accord
With Accord, you deal directly with decision-makers. We are your partner for growth. Private equity firms often look to Accord to support multiple companies within their portfolios. And entrepreneurs grow with us, taking advantage of Accord’s broad range of financing solutions as their company evolves.
Our equipment finance solutions focus on businesses that are overlooked or under-served by the large financial institutions. If you have bank financing in place, Accord can supplement with additional funding for situations or equipment where the bank won’t approve. Or your credit profile may be near-prime, making bank financing unavailable. This is where we excel, where we can leverage our passion and experience to fully understand your opportunity and find a creative solution to help your business grow.
And we never "sell" or "syndicate" our equipment finance contracts to third-parties, which gives you two distinct advantages:
- Together we can structure flexible equipment financing that works for you, which may not fall within the rigid boundaries of most other leasing companies
- If your circumstances change, you know exactly who to call for responsive, decisive action – we are your partner for the life of the lease, and hopefully beyond
Buy the right equipment to get the job done
Equipment finance through leasing is a cost-effective and tax-efficient way for businesses to acquire assets they need to grow. And you’re free to find the optimal equipment for your needs, whether new or used, whatever fits your budget and operations. We can accommodate almost all asset types including older or nonconventional equipment.
Best of all, equipment finance locks in your monthly cost and stretches payments out to match up with your revenues. And it keeps your cash and credit lines available for other uses, such as staffing, marketing and paying suppliers.
Unlock cash from equipment you already own
If your business already owns equipment and you need to generate cash for expansion, operations or other purposes, you can use your existing assets as collateral for a new lease or equipment finance loan. This is a great way to unlock fresh working capital, boosting your ability to grow.
Do you need flexible payment terms?
Then choose Accord. If your business operates in a seasonal industry like tourism or forestry, we can structure an equipment finance program with payments that vary around your busy and slow times of the year.
Make leasing your advantage
An equipment finance loan or lease offers compelling advantages over other forms of financing:
- Leave your bank and other credit lines open for other uses:
- Leasing does not affect your long-term or working capital debt
- Pay for your equipment as you earn money with it:
- Choose a term that makes monthly payments match up with your revenue and fit your budget
- Your lease payments are inflation-proof:
- Your monthly equipment finance payments are fixed and never change
- Save corporate taxes:
- Your lease payments may be fully tax deductible
- Leasing may defer sales taxes:
- Sales taxes are typically not paid up front when you buy the equipment, but spread out over the term the lease
- You can avoid obsolete equipment:
- Trade up or upgrade your equipment at any time
Industries served: broad and varied
Whatever industry you’re in, we can finance your equipment:
- Food & Beverage
- Materials handling
- And more
Every industry has unique equipment finance needs – if you need it, we can finance it.
