Sale Leaseback

Infuse your business with capital by reinvesting your operating funds. 

TAG Can Help You Facilitate Sale Leasebacks

Companies use sale leasebacks when they need to use the cash that they originally invested in their property for other purposes, such as to pay off debt or to invest back into their business. Sale-leasebacks can be an attractive alternative method of raising capital. For example, if a company gets a loan, this loan must be repaid and shows up on the company’s balance sheet as a debt. Alternatively, a leaseback transaction can actually help improve a company’s balance sheet health. The liability on the balance sheet will effectively go down, by avoiding more debt, and it will show an increase in current assets, in the form of cash and the lease agreement.

The Sale Leaseback Process

Sale leasebacks can be an attractive alternative to traditional loans. Unlike a loan, a leaseback transaction can improve a company’s balance sheet health by reducing liabilities and increasing current assets in the form of cash and the lease agreement.
  • We make it our priority to understand your needs and objectives. This could include your financial goals, operational requirements, and future plans. This step is crucial to ensure that the sale leaseback arrangement will be beneficial for you.
  • We evaluate the property in question. This includes its location, condition, market value, and potential for appreciation. This information is important to determine the feasibility of the sale leaseback arrangement and to set a fair price for the property.
  • Once the property has been evaluated, the next step is for us to negotiate the terms of the sale leaseback agreement. This includes the sale price, lease terms, and any other conditions. The negotiation is conducted in a way that ensures your needs are met.
  • After the terms have been agreed upon, the final step is for us to close the deal. This involves finalizing the sale and lease agreement, transferring the property title, and setting up the lease payments. We ensure that the process is transparent and that you are fully aware of all the terms and conditions of the agreement.
