Capital Equipment Procurement – Lease or Cash Purchase?

A major advantage of leasing capital equipment is that it allows companies to source and pay for their software and hardware equipment items over a period of 3 to 5 years at a fixed rate.

Cash purchasing is a viable option for companies who have the financial reserves and are happy to use their cash in a one off payment.

This system is more convenient for smaller companies and newer companies to secure the best and most suitable software and hardware for their needs.

Upgrades, maintenance and repairs may be managed inside the lease agreement itself with an option to purchase the equipment after expiry of the lease.
