Lease the equipment you need through Prospera Equipment Finance.

At Prospera Equipment Finance we provide leases for all makes and models of equipment, across almost all industries and regions throughout Canada. When you lease equipment, you want a solution that’s tailored to your business needs.

Why lease your equipment?

Equipment continues to get more and more expensive. The average business can go into ‘budget shock’ just doing the math on new equipment acquisitions. A substantial down payment requirement coupled with high monthly payments can make traditional borrowing not economical.

Leasing allows you to get the equipment you need while reducing the impact on your company’s cash flow.

4 great reasons to lease:

  • Retain working capital with lower down payment requirements.
  • Have lower monthly payments with terms that better match the economic life of the equipment.
  • Pay taxes monthly on the lease payments versus the total up front.
  • Own your equipment at the end of the lease term with our nominal end of term residuals.

How does vehicle leasing work?

When you lease a vehicle, you can reduce the monthly cost of ownership and avoid having to pay a lot of money upfront. Through a lease, you pay the difference between the initial cost of the vehicle and the residual value of the car after an agreed upon amount of time. That difference is known as “depreciation”.
