Leasing I.T. gear can be a great option for many small business owners.
Instead of being hit with hefty capital costs you can put your I.T. hardware and software purchases onto a monthly lease.
This model fits perfectly with your EASY I.T. service package and can free up hard earned business capital for investment in other areas of your business.
Computer hardware and software depreciates rapidly in value. Some would say that computer equipment adds value to a business, if it is being used productively and effectively. However, it is widely regarded as a capital cost and not a capital investment.
Leasing is cash flow friendly, tax deductible for business use, provides you with options at the end of the term and is quick and easy to approve.
Leasing options on hardware and software start from $500 with terms available from 1-5 years.
Leasing is ideal for rapidly depreciating assets like I.T. gear.
When precious capital is invested in rapidly depreciating assets, such as technology, the opportunity to earn a return on the investment (ROI) is often lost.
Opportunity cost is the cost of any activity measured against the best alternative. It is the sacrifice related to the second best choice available and is a key concept in economics.
The application of opportunity cost plays a crucial part in ensuring that scarce resources are used efficiently.
The following illustration shows the potential differences between an investment of $10,000 that depreciates over 36 months versus an investment that accumulates value over 36 months.
"If it appreciates, buy it. If it depreciates, lease it."
J. Paul Getty (1892 –1976) American industrialist
