No Up Front Capital Cost
The biggest advantage of leasing equipment is that the cost is spread over a
number of years; there is no need for you to pay the entire amount upfront.
This can significantly help maintain cash flow, which is critical to all businesses.
Poor cash flow is the main cause of business failures, and leasing can help
you to keep it under better control. Leasing can also allow you to use better
equipment (e.g. A more efficient / faster / more accurate product) that would be
too expensive to buy outright.
Leasing conserves valuable working capital and credit lines for more profitable
use elsewhere in your business.
Rentals can be spread over replacement or refurbishment period
We realize that the period that units are required will differ from client to
client and as such the lease term can be matched to specific replacement or
refurbishment timetable ensuring that your brassware is kept up to date with
new design and technology so you never have to worry about your properties
looking dated or tired.
Lease rentals are considered as an operating cost, which means that it is often
possible to deduct them from taxable profits (as a trading expense). Rental
payments are fully tax-deductible and can come out of your funds before they
are taxed. If you make a cash purchase from your capital you are using monies
you have already paid tax on. This can mean the total cost of ownership can be
lower by leasing than an outright cash purchase.
Eases Cash Flow
As a lease agreement is always a fixed contract, it is relatively easy to budget
and forecast with. The amount can be worked into your businesses budget
much more easily than an irregularly occurring lump sum; allowing you to keep
much better control over current and future cash flow. In the event that you
need an item replacing quickly, you can do so with a relatively minor monthly
adjustment to the budget, instead of a lump sum that could seriously damage
