Leasing improves cash flow
Leasing provides 100% financing with no down payment. Lease payments are a fraction of the total purchase price and can be a pre-tax expense. Lease payments can even be scheduled to coincide with a company's seasonal cash flow.
Leasing provides other credit sources
Unlike capital expenditure, leasing keeps a company's credit lines available to meet other needs.
Leasing conserves working capital
Leasing frees up a company's working capital for investments or other business expenses.
Leasing offers fixed rate financing
Fixed payments improve a company's ability to budget and forecast.
Leasing allows choice of equipment
Companies can specify the equipment they need and the source; as if purchasing it directly. All normal manufacturer's warranties are passed through to them.
Leasing helps hedge against inflation
Low, fixed-rate pricing protects against inflation and allows current acquisition with tomorrow's dollars.
Leasing makes more equipment available
Because the monthly lease payment is a small portion of the total cost of the equipment, leasing allows a greater amount of equipment for a given dollar allocation.
Leasing provides flexibility
Flexible end of lease options let a company purchase, refinance or upgrade the equipment.
Leasing offers tax advantages
With operating leases, tax laws allow the deduction of lease payments as a business expense. Plus, there is not time wasted with depreciation schedules or Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) issues.
