How to Finance Medical Equipment

Upgrade Using Smart Finance Solutions

Medical equipment finance in South Africa is the smart way for hospitals and private practices to upgrade their existing assets and grow into providing a better quality of service. Asset finance solutions that will help healthcare practitioners to conquer their career and growth goals include:

Operating Lease –finance for medical equipment can be done via an operating lease. An operating lease is complete off balance sheet funding which allows for zero depreciation to write off. The interest is also calculated on the capital amount excluding VAT. There is no ownership of the asset at the end of the period, practices therefore pay for the use and not the depreciation. Note that there are also operating lease options available with ownership.

Instalment Sale – An instalment sale is when ownership is automatically transferred to the practice once the final instalment has been received. Unlike with an operating lease, this method is treated as on balance sheet funding and the wear and tear allowances can also be written off.

Sale and Leaseback – With a sale and leaseback, practices can sell the asset(s) back to the relevant medical equipment finance companies and rent it back over the remaining lifespan. This allows businesses to still have use of the asset while freeing up cash.
