TAX-EXEMPT LEASE PURCHASE FINANCING
Local government, volunteer fire departments, school boards, public service districts, not-for-profit 501c3 organizations, hospitals and other political subdivisions can benefit from lease-purchase financing.
Country Roads Leasing, LLC’s lease-purchase agreements assist public agencies with shrinking tax base. Our lease-purchase program was developed as a financing alternative to cash purchases and the outright issuance of long-term municipal bonds. The ability to spread the cost of the equipment over the equipment’s useful life is a financial benefit.
By entering into a lease-purchase agreement, public entities can obtain ownership of equipment without debt obligation. Payments are regarded as a human growth hormone hgh current obligation, not a debt, and require only the approval of the governing body rather than a public referendum.
Lease-purchase agreements require that payments from government agencies are subject to annual appropriations. The agency must appropriate the necessary funds to meet debt service each and every year, until the obligation is paid in full. Once the obligation is met, the title and lien is released.
Typical lease- purchase terms range from twelve months to ten years, depending on the type of equipment and its useful life. Payment terms can be set up monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually.
