Finance Company – About KLC Financial

A premier finance company, KLC Financial, Inc. was founded in 1987. Headquartered in Minneapolis – St. Paul, KLC leases and finances capital equipment and assets for businesses nationwide, across industries as diverse as healthcare, manufacturing, high tech, transportation, hospitality, construction and more.

  • Financing solutions valued from $3,000 to over $3,000,000
  • Financing for all equipment types
  • Start-ups to Seasoned Businesses
  • New and Used Equipment
  • Creative solutions for all credit profiles
  • Work with small businesses to Fortune 500 companies

Since the company’s inception, KLC has emerged as a market leader by providing leasing and financing solutions valued from $3,000 to over $3,000,000; solutions that enable companies of all kinds to acquire the equipment, software and other business assets they need to grow. From “mom and pop” shops to Fortune 500 businesses, KLC is proud to now lease or finance upwards of $35 million annually.

As a truly independent financing company, KLC’s specialty is flexible, creative, custom solutions that support businesses that don’t easily fit the typical bank or finance company models. Because we are not beholden to outside shareholders, we can cover all facets of lease financing without having to specialize in any one industry or “credit mold.”

KLC Financial has been chosen as a strategic partner by many established equipment dealers, banks and other leasing companies to provide equipment financing programs on their behalf, because of our vast knowledge, experience and resources. Our customers range from Fortune 500 companies down to lower middle market businesses and “mom & pop” ventures. These relationships have translated into $35 million in lease transactions annually. We have found the market today to be growing, and demanding on leasing companies. Leasing companies today must structure sophisticated lease financing plans in simple terms to get their share of business.

At KLC Financial, we have found this to be our strength in a world of consolidation where the giants in the industry tend to have no time for customer service. KLC Financial’s path has been chosen cautiously, as we prefer to build volume profitably, while establishing solid, long term relationships with our customers, investing partners and referral sources.

Section 179

 What is Section 179?

Section 179 allows companies to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment or software that was financed or purchased during the tax year. This means that if you bought or leased qualifying equipment in 2017, you are able to deduct the full purchase price from your gross income. In addition, you may also qualify for bonus depreciation. Section 179 was created to provide tax relief for small businesses, although larger businesses can also benefit from this tax code.

Section 179 & Bonus Depreciation – Features/ Highlights

Section 179 Deduction for 2017

  • For both new and used equipment
  • Up to $500,000 if equipment is installed and put into service by midnight December 31, 2017
    After $2MM in qualified purchases, phase-out dollar-for-dollar until completely eliminated above $2.5MM. A true “small business tax incentive”.

Bonus Depreciation

  • Can be used in conjunction with Section 179 once $500,000 deduction cap is met
  • New equipment only
  • 50% cap in 2017, 40% in 2018, 30% in 2019


Total Equipment Purchases:$650,000
Section 179 Deduction:($500,000)
Bonus Depreciation (50% of remaining $150,000):($ 75,000)
Normal Depreciation (20% of useful 5yr life of remaining amount):($ 15,000)
Cash Savings ($590,000 x 35% tax rate):$206,500
Cost of Equipment after Tax (assuming 35% tax bracket) equals this:$443,500

Take Advantage of Section 179

Put simply, Section 179 allows you to take a full tax deduction when you lease, buy, or finance qualifying equipment or software. All qualifying equipment must be purchased and in use by midnight of December 31st, 2017. If you would like to learn more about Section 179 or if you’re ready to take advantage of this tax incentive, there is still time.
