Upon our arrival on the market and based on our knowledge of farming, the Company agrees to develop a rational agriculture and promote biodiversity.

What Are the Advantages of Financing Through HIG?
HIG Bank Business Equipment Financing offers your business these great benefits:

  • Less impact on cash flow You can structure payments to parallel your cash flows. Our flexible payment structures can be great for seasonal or cyclical businesses that prefer to schedule payments during peak cash flow periods.
  • Reduced paperwork and approval time - Most credit decisions can be made within four business hours. Transactions up to $75,000 require completion of a simple, one-page application.
  • Conservation of capital and credit - Your lines of credit and sources of capital aren't tied up in equipment. Instead, they're available for opportunities such as inventory, marketing, or personnel.
  • Immediate use of equipment - After signing your documents, you can contact the vendor to schedule delivery of your new equipment. It's that easy.
  • Project basis use of equipment - By selecting a payment term that closely matches the project's duration, Business Equipment Financing is a good way to acquire the latest equipment without having to keep it when that project is complete. Our end-of-term options give you the flexibility to return the equipment, upgrade or keep the equipment for your next project. This way, you'll always be able to maintain a competitive edge by using the most advanced equipment to serve your clients.
  • 100% financing, including soft costs - In addition to financing 100% of the equipment, you can include "soft" costs (up to 10% of the equipment cost) such as sales tax, shipping, software, training, maintenance and installation into one monthly payment.
  • Protection against obsolescence - High tech equipment is often obsolete in two-to-four years. You can add upgrades and new equipment by modifying your agreement to keep your company on the leading edge. Plus, if you want to acquire complementary equipment (e.g., adding voice mail to a phone system), you can arrange for both payment schedules to end at the same time.
  • Tax benefits - Several of our financing options allow you to deduct your monthly payments as an operating expense. • Reduced interest rate risk - By locking in fixed payments now, you can avoid the risk of inflation in the future.
