What are the benefits of leasing a photocopier?

In most cases the outlay purchase price of a office device such as a photocopier or multifunction device is daunting. The initial investment, the prospect of the product becoming obsolete in five years time, needing to upgrade or downgrade are some factors why leasing a photocopier or multifunction device is the smart alternative.

Budget: Pay as you use / Pay as you go. This makes great sense in modern day business, as many businesses their earn revenue over time. Paying out a large lump sum, or leasing so you can make small fixed easier manageable monthly payments. Changes in interest rates will not affect your payment; therefore you can now accurately plan your lease payments for your cash flow forecast. The addition of the photocopier or multifunction device can then be compared against cost & projected revenue return.

Tax: Leasing may reduce your tax bill. The lease cost is a deductible business expense, reducing the overall net expense of the equipment. This can be one of the largest factors to help you determine whether to lease or buy. Buyers can claim 40% of the device purchase price against their taxes in the first year and 25% every year thereafter until the outstanding balance has been paid. If you lease you will not have to pay anything for the photocopier initially and may just about reclaim everything.

ROI: A return on your investment. How do you say? Increase productivity; greatly reduce your actual everyday printing costs; automated supplies reducing time wasted on finding, ordering and tracking consumables.
