If you’re starting or expanding your business you may need to obtain finance.

Also referred to as “asset finance”, equipment loans are commonly used by businesses to purchase things like machinery, vehicles, and other technology. There are various loan arrangements available for this kind of financing, including hire-purchase agreement, and a lease agreement.
