What exactly is a municipal lease purchase and how does it work?

A tax-exempt municipal lease purchase is a useful tool for cash flow management. Municipal leasing conserves working capital and is a viable alternative for acquiring assets without large cash expenditures. By utilizing a municipal lease purchase you avoid the following:

  1. Large cash payment for outright purchase
  2. Short-term rental (which is expensive)
  3. Issuance of a long term debt instrument (which is costly, time consuming and requires voter approval).

A municipal lease purchase is an installment purchase program. It is not a rental agreement nor does it create a debt obligation for the governmental unit. Municipal leasing allows the lessee to make installment payments which include principal and interest and to build up equity in the sweeper over the term of the lease. At the end of the lease agreement, the lessee owns the sweeper outright free and clear.

The municipal lease purchase contract includes a non-appropriation clause that confirms payments shall be made from the lessee’s operating budget or capital appropriations for the current fiscal period. The lease is renewed each budget year for the term of the agreement.

One of the big questions that a sweeping contractor has to ask himself is “Should I pay cash, finance or lease my new TYMCO?” There are pros and cons to all three methods of purchasing your new TYMCO sweeper.

1. Paying cash

When you purchase a piece of equipment with cash, you own it outright, you can do with it as you please, it can be used as collateral for a loan, and you may sell it at any time with clear title. You may also depreciate the cost of the equipment over a set period of years for tax purposes. The down side is you are out of pocket a large sum of money that could be used for other business expenditures.

2. Financing

When you finance your sweeper at the bank, credit union or with another financial lending institution, you usually have to pay a percentage (10% – 20%) of the cost as a down payment and then make Principal and Interest (P&I) payments for a fixed number of months. This means you have to pay some money out of your pocket up front but get a fixed interest rate over time. At the end of the term of the loan, you would own the equipment outright. A potential downside is that it is a financed asset and would be reflected on your balance sheet, which may hinder further credit purchases.

Financing example: 60 Month, 10% Down Loan

Price: $100,000.00

Down Payment: $10,000.00 (10%)

Finance Amount: $90,000.00

Term: 60 Months

Monthly Payment: $1,782.11 in arrears

Rate: 7.00%

Factor: .0198012

3. Leasing

There are many types of leases available in today’s marketplace. The most common are $1 Buy-out, 10% Purchase Upon Termination (PUT), Operating or Market Value Leases and TRAC leases. These leases are each a little different and have advantages and disadvantages unique to each type. The most common are $1.00 Buy-Out and 10% TRAC leases. Even though you don’t own it, you will be responsible for maintenance, insurance, and taxes. You also may, in most cases, write-off the lease payments as a business expense for tax purposes (consult your tax professional).

Leasing example: 60 Month, 10% Residual, TRAC Lease

Price: $100,000.00

Term: 60 Months

Residual: $10,000.00 (10%)

Monthly Payment: $1,829.77 in advance, 1st pmt. due on delivery

Rate: 7.00%

Factor: .0182977
