Buying equipment outright, while often cheaper in the long run, may not be best solution for you. It can eat into valuable working capital which may be better utilised in other areas of the business and to fund growth. In this scenario it may make more sound financial sense to either lease purchase or rent goods by leasing.

Leasing and HP

You can lease any Scanna product for between 2 and 6 years and at the end of the contract, you have the option to extend the agreement or return and upgrade the equipment to the latest technology. The lease can be structured to include all your training and maintenance needs throughout the term. We also offer HP agreements whereby the equipment ownership passes to you at the end of the leasing period for a small final payment.

Why Should I Lease?

Leasing allows you and your business the use of equipment which is vital to your success, without having to own a depreciating asset or drain more of your operating budget than is necessary. It costs less initially and per month than buying, and has tax benefits that buying doesn’t. When the term is over, you can walk away from the equipment or buy it… with the advantage of having used it first to assure that it meets your needs.

Who Should Lease?

Anyone who doesn’t want to put their money into “depreciating” assets should be leasing. In time, your purchase is worth consistently less, but you keep paying as though it were new. By leasing, you’re only buying the best years and most trouble-free usage of the item. As a business owner, you know that staying current with your support equipment can make all the difference, and by leasing you have more money available to take care of other important operating expenses. There is significantly less paperwork with leasing and no complicated depreciation schedules to maintain.

Leasing offers flexibility

A leasing contract can be tailored to meet the needs of any business. Through leasing, a business can also upgrade, or add equipment, at any time during a contract.

Leasing conserves capital.

Leasing does not require a significant down payment, and provides a 100 percent financing option which frees up your working capital lines.

Leasing provides tax benefits.

In some cases, you may be able to deduct lease payments as an operating expense, rather than depreciate equipment over a much longer period of time. In addition, lease terms are frequently shorter than the depreciable life of the equipment.

Leasing is convenient.

With flexible terms and an easy application and documentation process, leasing is the most convenient form of financing available today.

Leasing provides a predictable budget item.

Lease payments and rates are fixed, allowing easier and more accurate budgeting and forecasting.

Leasing provides equipment for your convenience.

Leasing equipment to generate income always gives you the opportunity to update current equipment or use equipment for a limited time, without the obligations of purchasing.
