- No need to find hefty deposits
- Tax advantages to leasing
- Regular lease payments that do not increase, even if interest rates do
- Settlement of the supplier invoice upon installation/delivery
- Quick decisions
- Preserve existing credit lines and overdrafts
- Get the best equipment for your business, not just the cheapest
Are there tax benefits associated with leasing?
Any business wishing to acquire capital equipment should look for the most tax efficient way to purchase.
All lease payments are treated as an allowable business expense and therefore attract tax relief for the full duration of the lease agreement. Your accountant will be able to confirm this.
More details on the Corporation Tax allowance changes effective from April 2012 can be found Here.
Should I pay cash or lease?
You may be able to afford to buy the equipment outright, but before you make this decision you must consider the following:
- All leasing payments are rental payments and as such are an allowable business expense, therefore if a business is making money the profit can be reduced by the amount of the rentals you pay each year, which in turn reduces your tax bill.
- Payments are normally the same throughout the lease contract. This means that increases in interest rates do not affect you and your cash budget can be utilised more effectively.
- Leasing enables you to protect your cash to use for other needs such as new stock, staff training, advertising, new business opportunities and unexpected expenses.
How does a lease work?
A lease agreement is a contract between you, ‘the customer’, and a leasing company. This enables you to have and use a piece of equipment over a period of time on payment of rentals to the leasing company.
With a typical lease agreement, you make a series of regular payments (usually on a monthly basis), thus helping cash flow, as opposed to a large capital outlay for the equipment.
You won’t have a depreciating asset on your books, and can benefit from the tax advantages of paying a lease rental.
