13 Dec Top Benefits of Leasing Your Office Equipment
No office could run without a reliable printer or commercial copier. However, these pieces of equipment require a significant investment to purchase. As an alternative, your business may choose to lease office equipment. Not only can a lease save you money with your initial financing, but it can offer a variety of benefits for the life of your equipment. Here’s a closer look at the perks of copier, printer, and scanner leases.
Lease payments are typically tax-deductible business expenses, so your office equipment lease can offer benefits year after year. Additionally, leasing will require less money upfront, so you will have more manageable costs—this can be essential for businesses just starting out and working to reduce their overhead as much as possible.
Ease of Upgrades
If you own a copier, you are stuck with that machine for many years to come, even as technologies evolve and improve. Copiers have a lifespan of about 10-15 years, and it is simply not feasible to purchase a new machine until the old one wears out. When you lease, however, your lease term will be shorter than the average life of a given copier, so you aren’t locked in to keeping that machine as new technologies come out. In addition, your lease may include the option to upgrade your equipment, even before the lease term is up. This can give your business a competitive edge, since you’ll always be able to work with the latest models of printers, copiers, and scanners.
Customized Maintenance Agreements
When you purchase office equipment, there is typically not a maintenance plan included. Alternatively, equipment leasing can include a maintenance contract that will keep your machines in optimal working order. This means less downtime for your equipment, which minimizes disruptions that slow down office productivity.
