Finance the equipment you need rather than purchasing outright:
Equipment finance gives your business the gear, software and furniture it needs in order to succeed. One excellent way to obtain this type of financing is through a lease—it doesn’t tie up cash, receivables, credit cards or bank lines. Equipment finance via a lease is appealing simply because you don’t need large amounts of collateral in order to get approval. The other major positive is that with a lease the taxes can be expensed.
