BUSINESS LEASING OR PURCHASE?

  • Leasing can be a smart way to go because it lets you improve cash flow. Your company will realize an immediate cash savings by not having to pay a large down payment to purchase equipment.

  • Tax benefits – your payments may be fully deductible
  • You have the ability to arrange long, flexible terms with low monthly payments
  • Put your equipment to use immediately to generate revenues
  • Conserve valuable company working capital and preserve your bank credit lines
  • Incur costs equally over the usable life of the equipment.
