The Toro Company offers a full line of customized, competitive financing offerings. The goal of Toro financing programs is to help each customer acquire the exact equipment and irrigation technology they need in the most cost-effective way possible.
We help our customers assess the many factors which can affect their decision to purchase or lease new products. We educate customers on relevant areas such as tax advantages, cash flow implications, impact on operating expenses, and more. Toro puts a high priority on maximizing value for every customer. In short, Toro financing is a tool to help you tailor the best, most viable long-term plan for acquiring and managing your assets.
When people ask me an important business question, they probably expect a straight answer. However, if the question is, "Do you recommend leasing or buying?" my response is: "It depends." When acquiring new equipment, compare the respective financial benefits of leasing and buying.
Fortunately, your Toro representative can customize an acquisition strategy that’s based on your needs. If your club has good cash flow, you could just buy the unit and take advantage of the accelerated tax benefits your purchase represents. That can translate to serious money saving.
Leasing may be attractive if you want to optimize cash flow, by making the lowest possible payments for the new equipment. If so, assess your pre-tax vs. after-tax advantages. If it’s before tax, I’d likely recommend a Fair Market Value lease. After tax, a conditional sales contract might be better for its additional benefits. As an independent consultant, I’ve helped Toro customize financing programs for any situation. For more details, talk to a financial advisor, or ask your Toro representative about the benefits of various options available to you.
