Though the threat of increased taxes is painful, hitting the debt ceiling is lethal for businesses that need access to capital.
Boston MA (PRWEB) December 21, 2012
LeaseQ, one of the leading providers of business equipment leasing and financing in the United States, is offering unique and innovative lending solutions to small businesses and Fortune 500 companies in the path of the looming fiscal cliff. With decisions in Washington, DC hanging in the balance, the need was seen to offer programs ensuring that small businesses would continue to have access to the capital they need for additional equipment, personnel, and other areas of expansion.
LeaseQ is urging lawmakers in Washington DC to reach a decision on how to best handle the looming fiscal cliff crisis. The lending authority claims that failure to do so will have an adverse effect on small businesses who need to feel confident in the country’s economic condition before committing to long term investments or other plans designed to spur growth and expansion.
When asked why raising the debt ceiling is critical, Vernon Tirey, CEO at LeaseQ, Inc. said:
“Businesses need access to capital to grow. Although large businesses have the luxury of sitting on cash, small and medium businesses do not. We see that lenders are becoming increasingly more cautious as Washington wrangles over the fiscal cliff and the need to raise the debt ceiling gets pushed to the sideline.” Mr. Tirey went on to say: “At LeaseQ we can now help a business see all its equipment finance options in about two minutes when it used to take days or weeks to really shop for competitive financing. The government needs to learn how to operate more efficiently too.”
By offering a variety of lending and leasing options for small business owners, LeaseQ is able to assist these companies when it comes to remaining competitive and growing in an uncertain economy. Businesses can examine a variety of options and choose the one best suited for their needs and budget. The application and approval process is one of the fastest in the industry, with response times measured in minutes as opposed to hours or days.
