Why Lease?

  • Lowest out of pocket cost - even finance soft costs.
  • Leave cash and existing lines available for opportunities and emergencies.
  • Improve ROE/ROA with operating structure.
  • Payments may be fully deductible and allow writeoff over lease term rather than longer depreciation schedule.
  • Let the equipment pay for itself - use of equipment produces revenue, not ownership.
  • You wouldn't pay an employee 3 years up front, don't do it with your equipment.
