Different leasing options for different needs.
Ritchie Bros. Financial Services understands your business, and we know equipment and trucks. That’s why we don’t believe in one-size fits-all leasing. Our choice of leasing options includes terminal rental adjustment clause (TRAC), FMV (Fair Market Value), Buck Out, Capital & Operating, and Sale & Lease Backs.
Here’s a look at the differences between the lease options we offer:
TRAC - A terminal rental adjustment clause lease (TRAC Lease) combines all the advantages of leasing while retaining the option to purchase the equipment at the end of the lease term at a pre-determined residual agreed to when the lease starts. Your monthly payments on a TRAC Lease are determined by the residual price you establish at the start of the lease. Depending on your cash flow needs, you can select a higher end-of-term residual amount for a lower monthly payment, or keep the end-of-term residual lower to pay more through the stream of payments.
FMV (Fair Market Value) - A fair market value lease may also be referred to as a true lease. This type of lease provides several flexible options at the conclusion of the lease agreement. Typically, the lessee will have the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew the terms, or purchase the equipment for the fair market value.
Buck Out - A dollar buyout lease may also be referred to as a buck out lease. This type of lease guarantees the option to purchase the equipment for the amount of one dollar ($1) at the conclusion of the lease agreement. Customers that plan to keep the equipment at the end of the lease term typically select the dollar buyout option.
Capital & Operating - An operating lease is treated like renting—payments are considered operational expenses and the asset being leased stays off the balance sheet. There is no buyout of an Operating Lease.
In contrast, a capital lease is more like a loan; the asset is treated as being owned by the lessee so it stays on the balance sheet. A Capital Lease contains a bargain purchase option to buy the equipment at less than fair market value (set out at a predetermined amount: 10%, 15%, 20% etc).
Sale & Lease Back - If you have recently paid cash for some new equipment, RBFS can offer you cash for the equipment and convert your purchase into a lease. This is called a sale & lease back. If you have paid for the equipment within the last ninety days, RBFS can help you recoup your investment in the equipment and allow you to make low monthly payments. Certain credit guidelines must be met and certain documentation such as invoices and proof of payment must be provided as well.
