Making the decision to lease business equipment could have a noticeable effect on the success of the business, so it is a choice worth considering with an adviser – and even worth the time for established business owners to re-consider as well.
Leasing (or ‘asset finance’) is a way of purchasing equipment, machinery or other assets without having to pay the full amount upfront. You are essentially paying a regular amount to ‘rent’ the equipment from the ‘lessor.’
Almost anything can be leased or purchased as long as the asset will be used more than 50% of the time to earn assessable income. This includes vehicles, computers, machinery and other types of equipment.
Applicants for a lease can be Companies, Individuals, Trusts, Partnerships, or Independent Traders.
You must have home equity and produce tax returns for the last two years for your business to be eligible.
