Commercial equipment financing Why purchase instead of lease?
Here are just a few reasons why:
Commercial / industrial equipment is not as threatened by obsolescence as equipment in industries such as technology or medical where equipment can quickly become obsolete in an ever changing environment. With proper maintenance, commercial equipment can more than outlast the cost-benefits of a lease. Leasing is much more beneficial in technology sectors where equipment can become outdated almost overnight.
Whether it’s a term-loan or a line of credit (secured and unsecured) the key factor is ownership. You enjoy the benefits of ownership and the future flexibility to utilize accrued equity to leverage working capital when needed. With commercial equipment leases, this is not possible.
First Year Expensing
Purchasing may allow you to deduct a substantial amount of the equipment’s value the year it is purchased (as part of first-year expensing); anything above that amount gets depreciated over several years.
