Equipment Leasing & Financing FAQ
Find answers to some of the most common questions we get from Equipment Buyers like you.
No matter where you are in the process of financing your equipment purchase with TimePayment, we've got the answers to all your questions.
A lease is a contractual arrangement in which a leasing company (a Lessor, such as TimePayment) gives a customer (the Lessee) the right to use its equipment for a specified length of time (known as a Lease Term) and specified payment plan (usually monthly).
Depending on the lease structure, at the end of the Lease Term the customer will have the option to purchase, return, or continue to lease the equipment.
Leasing your equipment with TimePayment may be an affordable alternative to a loan.
Many lending institutions have very strict requirements businesses must meet before the bank will extend a loan or line of credit. Bank loans usually require a significant down payment that can range between 10% - 20% of the equipment cost.
With a TimePayment lease our standard program only requires one advance payment and the documentation fee prior to the start of the lease. TimePayment is able to offer financing to more businesses that have yet to establish a strong credit history or have a compromised credit history through our innovative, multilevel financing products.

Your Lease Agreement is non-cancelable. As the Lessee, you are responsible for all of the lease payments.
If you wish to pay your balance in full to put an end to your monthly payments, you can buyout the lease early with no penalty. To request a payoff click here.
If you wish to return your equipment prior to the end of the lease term, it is considered a voluntary repossession. You would still be responsible for the remaining lease payments. To arrange for the return of your equipment, please contact TimePayment Customer Service.
