When is Leasing the Smart Solution?

Sometimes it simply makes more sense to lease equipment for your company than to purchase it. Discover some compelling reasons to consider it the next time you're shopping for new or replacement products.

Leasing is a proven way for companies to acquire the equipment needed to operate their business more efficiently, while managing cash flow. Instead of tying up cash to purchase equipment, leasing provides 100 percent financing, allowing you to preserve your capital and credit lines so that you can utilize your cash for working capital and business investment opportunities.

In addition, leasing may provide potential tax advantages,1 particularly with the extension of IRS Section 179 depreciation and expensing breaks. Consult your tax advisor for complete details.

What can you lease?

Equipment leasing is available to most industries, including agriculture, construction/contracting, industrial/manufacturing, medical, municipalities, office services, printing/publishing, recreation, refuse hauling, transportation, warehouse/material and handling.

The types of equipment most frequently leased include:

  • Computer equipment and software
  • Medical equipment, for optical, dental and diagnostic services
  • Office equipment, including copiers, printers, fax machines, furniture, audio/visual equipment and telecommunications systems
  • Industrial and construction equipment, such as forklifts, cranes, printing presses, drills and grinders
