True Tax Leases, Commercial Equipment Leasing & Financing
Lower your payments and
reduce your tax burden with one of the top-trusted capital equipment leasing companies.
True Tax Leases for Commercial Equipment Leasing have lower up-front costs, lower monthly payments and multiple tax advantages. Our Commercial Equipment Leasing through True Tax Leases can finance up to 100% of the cost of the equipment including “soft costs” (transportation, delivery, installation and other deferred costs). The payment on a True Tax Lease is usually lower than a Non-Tax Lease (which preserves cash flow) and also allows the business to deduct qualifying lease payments as operating expenses.
Regents’ True Tax Leases include Operating Leases, Stretch Leases, Skip Payment Leases and Step Payment Leases. These leases can be tailored with flexible structures, tax advantages, and end-of-term buyout options including lease extensions, return or purchase of equipment at fair market value.
Features & Benefits of Commercial Equipment Leasing
Commercial equipment financing
through True Tax Leases
Lower Capital & Commercial Equipment Financing Costs
Lower commercial equipment financing costs with no hidden charges, non- utilization fines or fees in fine print. Converting variable debt to fixed rate financing hedges against inflation and rising interest rates as payments remain the same for the term of the contract. As your awarded capital equipment leasing company – we think that’s the way equipment financing should be.
Regents Helps You Avoid Bank Restrictions
Avoid blanket liens, restrictive covenants, rate escalator clauses, compensating balance requirements, or other typical surprises in traditional lending restrictions, all while improving financial and internal performance ratios. Our business and funding solutions work with you, not against you.
Regents Progress Payment Management
Our clients save time and upfront cash when Regents manages all of the invoicing and necessary progress payments. This increases efficiency and progress as well as helping to alleviate many vendor-induced headaches.
100% Financing Options for Your Business Needs
At Regents, we understand that financing may be needed for associated project costs including soft costs such as installation, design fees, software, delivery, training, etc. – costs that many banks cannot or will not cover.

Lower Payment Options for Your Business

Off-Balance Sheet Commercial Equipment Financing

I’m not really known to be much of a wordsmith, so I’ll not use too much fancy talk to tell you how wonderful the experience has been working with you two on this deal. You young ones have really impressed me. You guys have been quite a breath of fresh air as it goes in dealing with lenders aka bankers and the like. As I said before, I was so used to dealing in the “old” world of lending, dingy offices with old school people who obviously hate what they do. Those experiences have made coming to your company truly a very pleasant experience.
Great job and I’ll take you up on the beer.”
