What is leasing for medical services?
This is a type of financing, defined in the Civil Code of Quebec, that can be used by healthcare professionals for their medical and dental facilities. It represents a quick and efficient solution to provide these establishments with the latest equipment and technology necessary to treat their patients.
The leasing contract is in fact a tripartite agreement between a lessee (the tenant), a lessor (the one who offers the financing) and a third party (the one who sells the property to the lessor).

What are the benefits of leasing for medical and dental equipment financing?
You maintain your bank borrowing capacity
These types of financial services do not affect your ability to borrow from banks. This means that the amount you lease will not increase your borrowing capacity, allowing you to maintain your credit while financing the equipment you need for your clinic or practice.
You can benefit from tax benefits
With this type of financial service, your monthly payments are 100% deductible as an operating expense, unlike a purchase. This is a significant tax advantage that businesses can take advantage of to maximize their returns and give themselves the means to grow.
You can get quick approval responses
At least at Finco, we are confident that we can get you approved within 48 business hours, often the same day. In any case, we work as efficiently and quickly as possible to best meet your device needs.
Plus, you won’t have to worry about the variable interest rates typical of traditional medical and dental equipment loans.
Sales tax paid on the term
At the time of purchase, our lenders pay the sales tax for you. This means you can keep that money in your account and pay the tax on payments throughout the term.
