Looking for equipment finance brokers in Melbourne? There are a few things you should know about commercial equipment financing first.

By now you’ve heard about the benefits of financing your commercial equipment instead of buying it outright at the start. Given the high cost of starting a franchise, obtaining funding for your assets is a smart choice, allowing you to free up your capital for any unexpected expenses, hiring additional staff and even advertising and marketing initiatives, all of which would give your business a better chance of success, whether you’re just starting up or expanding to a second or more locations.

If you’re starting out a new franchise business and think you can afford to buy your equipment outright at the start, make sure you’ve considered all the costs that you’re likely to incur.  A useful post on posed the question “Can You Afford to Buy a Franchise?”.

It’s vitally important for franchise business owners to have a “cushion” of capital on hand for any unexpected costs especially as the business gets off the ground and begins expanding. The writer explains,

“The type of franchise you are interested in can also impact how much money you will need before you break even. A cheap franchise will cost you less money upfront, but it also may not generate enough, as quickly as you need it, to replace the income you were making before buying your low-cost franchise.

Why is this important? Because most, if not all, franchise owners will require a cushion while their franchise grows and establishes itself. It can take several years for you to earn from the franchise what you were making prior to going into business for yourself. Having a cushion of money that you can live off of as your franchise gets up and running is essential.”


So if spending all your available capital outright at the start to purchase your assets will deplete your “cushion”, financing your commercial equipment is a smarter choice. This will allow you to retain your valuable capital.
