Rentals & Financial leasing for Pumps services
Rentals or Operating Lease services are offered by Apco. Operating lease is not a means of financing equipment purchase – only short-term use of equipment: e.g., Pump rentals. Maintenance and obsolesces risk lie with the leasing company as against the lessee in financial leasing.
APCO offers financial leasing services, a contractual arrangement that allows one party (the lessee) to use and operate the pump unit by the leasing company (the lessor) in exchange for specific periodic payments. This will come at great benefits for the lessee; providing improved financial management. At Apco, we know that pumping equipment can be a significant investment. Time to buy does not always go hand in hand with your needs. Our leasing program can allow you to acquire the pumps you need when you need them – without forsaking your total budget at one time.
Why leasing? Our Leasing Program Offers several Technical and Financial Benefits:
Leasing avoids a substantial outflow of cash that would be required in an outright purchase. As a consequence, the company spreads the cash outflows into relatively small ones over the years of the asset’s life. Leasing allows smaller initial investment required, saving capital costs (better for the liquidity of the lessee) with payments made over a long period of time – e.g. quarterly, six monthly, yearly, according the Lessee needs. It saves the full value being paid in case of needing opening a letter of credit with whole value. The Lessee has the option of purchasing the pump station at the end of the contract, at a price agreed upon in the contract.
Leasing allows for higher tax benefits than the alternative of borrowing and purchasing an asset. Payments made by lease program participants are considered operating expenses and not capital expenditures, so they can be written off immediately. This often accelerates tax deductions when compared to depreciating assets over five to seven years. Governments allow lessees to deduct full lease payments from their income before tax.
The lessee can Lease approximately four or five pump stations at once rather than buying only one pump station. This has a great advantage when the pumps need to be operating for different projects and locations simultaneously.
The lessee will benefit from having maintenance and service done by MWI-Egypt during the contract period since the asset’s maintenance costs are covered by the lease agreement, saving the lessee company further cash outflow. Apco is responsible for periodic maintenance to ensure the continuity of the equipment operation without interruption. It also includes specific technical staff training for lessee, to be acquainted with best and appropriate operation of the equipment to ensure the best performance of its service. The lessor responsibilities of the maintenance ensure the lessee will have the equipment in good condition at the end of the contract period, which is an additional asset to the lessee. MWI Egypt will always have any spare parts required for the pump station.
Leasing allows the lessee to take advantage of ‘new and improved’ or upgraded assets, and thus avoid the risk of costly obsolescence. it ensures the availability of required equipment, according to the up-to-date technological systems and modern production systems of high-tech equipment. The company can replace the leased asset with an up-to-date model without having to record a loss/gain on sale of the old model.
Leasing protects against inflation risk system (High prices as a result of the different exchange currency). The Leasing payments are fixed during the contract period, regardless inflation rate, especially for consumed spare parts that are purchased during the years.
Leasing includes comprehensive insurance against all risks to the equipment throughout the lease period, so that the lessee guarantees a similar equipment in case theft, fire or accidents at no extra costs.
The ease of finish leasing system procedures compared to other systems. It has low transaction and documentation costs. Fewer requirements about balance sheets. No outside security/collateral needed.
MWI Egypt is responsible for all maintenance for the pump stations during the contract (MWI offers 24-hour assistance to support any breakdown). MWI Egypt will always have any spare parts required for the pump station (which saves the Leaser of going through the process of importing any spare parts, which saves time and cuts costs.
In order to go through with the Leasing Agreement, the parties must agree on the following:
- Leasing amount of the pumping station.
- Method of payment.
- Time installments must be paid.
- Price of the unit if the Lessee decides to purchase the unit at the end of the contract.
- Signing the contract.
- Supply of the units according to the beginning date of the contract.
