Equipment

With an equipment lease you can pay in instalments for your production facilities and for the equipment and machinery that you need for your business services. The ability to lease makes your business easier and gives you more flexibility.

Leasing equipment is easy and convenient – you can choose between a  financial lease, an operational lease or a service lease, whatever suits your wishes and needs best.

Which type of lease is best for you depends on whether you only want to use the equipment or whether you want to own it when the lease ends.

In addition to financing, Nordea Leasing can offer you motor third party liability insurance, motor own damage (casco) insurance, insurance for construction and agricultural machinery and equipment, and industrial equipment insurance.

  • An operational lease is the right option for you if you only want to use the equipment and do not want to own it when the lease ends.
  • If you choose an operating lease, Nordea Leasing will buy the equipment of your choice and you can use it for an agreed time in exchange for lease payments.
When the lease ends you can:
  • Continue using the equipment by renewing the lease contract (unless the equipment is too old)
  • Replace the old equipment with new by choosing the equipment you need and finding a buyer for the old equipment
  • Become the owner of the equipment by paying Nordea Leasing for its residual value

  • A  financial lease is the right option for you if you want to own the leased assets when the lease ends.
  • If you choose a  financial lease, Nordea Leasing will buy the equipment of your choice and you can use it for an agreed time in exchange for lease payments. If you have fulfilled the contract, you will become the owner of the equipment when the lease ends.
  • If you want your monthly lease payments to be smaller or to extend your lease contract when it ends, you can do this by making one larger additional payment at the end of the lease.
  • You will become the owner of the equipment after you have made the last lease payment.

A service lease is a type of operational lease and its conditions comply with the IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards). This means that Nordea Leasing will buy the equipment of your choice and you can use it over an agreed lease period. You will make fixed monthly payments to Nordea Leasing.

In addition to financing, these payments may include fees for:

  • Maintenance of the equipment
  • Repairs to the equipment
  • Insurance of the equipment
  • When the lease contract ends you need to return the equipment to Nordea Leasing at an agreed place.

We give service leases for the following industrial equipment:

  • Construction and material processing machinery
  • Hoists
  • Trucks and trailers
  • Tractors and combine harvesters
  • We only offer service leases jointly with equipment vendors who are partners of Nordea Leasing.
  • Your first down-payment needs to cover  at least 10% of the value of the equipment. With a service lease it can be 0% of the value of the equipment.
  • The interest rate is either fixed or variable. The base rate for a variable interest rate is the six or three-month Euribor. The interest for a service lease is included in the lease payments.
  • Leases can be up to 60 months in duration.
  • The value of the leased equipment must be at least 10,000 euros.
  • The contract fee is shown in the price list
  • If your equipment must be registered in the traffic register, you need to insure it against third party liability.
  • You need to obtain fully comprehensive, CPM and property insurance contracts for all your leased equipment for the duration of the lease contract from an insurance company accepted (in Estonian) by Nordea Leasing.
  • The final terms and conditions of a lease contract depend on the particular equipment and the particular client.
