The Building you want.
The Lease you need.
Telmark has been leasing equipment for over 30 years. Did you know
that we’ve been leasing new buildings for that long too? Consider:
Tax deductibility and accelerated write-offs: Lease payments are
income tax deductible over the term of the lease compared to 20-year
depreciation of farm buildings and 39-year depreciation of commercial
buildings. Could reduce tax liability this year.
Low upfront costs: Beginning costs as little as one monthly lease payment,
Flexible lease term: Building lease terms start aggressively at five years
but may be as long as ten, twelve, or fifteen years.
Customized payment schedules: Lease payment schedules are specially
designed to match your cash flow.
First: Talk with a qualified builder to determine your needs and building cost.
Then: Call your Telmark representative for your financing.
