When is my first payment due and what is pro-rated charge? 

Your payment obligation begins when we make payment for the equipment, also sometimes referred to as the commencement date. The pro-rated charge covers the interim period between the commencement date and the first due date of your regular billing cycle. The amount of the pro-rated charge is calculated as 1/30th of the regular scheduled payment amount, multiplied by the number of days in the interim period. Any advanced payments you might have paid will be applied to cover the regular scheduled payments and not the pro-rated charge. For more information, you may refer to the payments section of your agreement.

What are my options if I want to pay the account off early? 

Although there is no contractual right to pre-pay, if you are not in default we can agree to an early termination upon your written request. The payoff amount will be calculated using a present value rate to discount the future payments due under the agreement, and there is no additional penalty or fee.

Do I need to insure the equipment? 

If you are required to maintain insurance on the equipment or vehicle you will receive an email and a letter outlining the requirements and provide you with instructions on what to do if you already have insurance. We also offer automatic insurance where the equipment will be covered automatically under Ascentium Capital’s insurance if you don’t provide your own insurance. Under Ascentium Capital’s policy, you will be billed for the expenses.
