What is an Equipment Lease Buyback?
An equipment lease buyback, also known as a leaseback, is a financial transaction in which one party sells business equipment or other tangible assets and leases it back.
The mechanics behind equipment lease buyback transactions are fairly simple: a company or individual purchases equipment or some other asset. He or she then sells the equipment to a third party, typically for a prolonged length of time, at which point the equipment is leased back to the original owner.
Equipment Lease Buybacks are Ideal For:
- Companies that Own Equipment
- Reducing Tax Liabilities
- Working Capital Preservation
- Saving on Down Payments
- Avoiding a New Line of Credit

Who Uses Equipment Lease Buybacks?
Equipment lease buybacks can be used by any company or organization that owns tangible assets. This type of financial transaction is common in the general aviation industry, for instance, as flight training schools will often sell their airplanes and other high-dollar equipment to a holding company while still being able to use them through lease buybacks.
Manufacturing and industrial companies also use lease buybacks on their high-dollar equipment. A new forklift, for instance, can easily cost more than $25,000. Footing the bill for several dozen forklifts can quickly place a financial burden on an industrial company. By using an equipment lease buyback
, however, the company can continue using the forklifts after selling them to a holding company.
The Bottom Line
Equipment lease buybacks are a great way for companies and organizations to generate revenue on their tangible assets. The business equipment is sold to a third party who then leases it back to the original owner. The original owner may continue using the equipment, assuming the lease is paid on time and according to the terms set forth in the transaction.
