Northern Leasing in New York Reaches Out to Remind Businesses of Leasing Benefits
(1888PressRelease) Northern Leasing wants to remind business owners of the option to lease point of sale equipment
and the many benefits associated with leasing as opposed to buying outright.
(1888PressRelease) New York, NY - Northern Leasing, a market leader in micro-ticket leasing, is reaching
out in an effort to educate business owners on the benefits associated with point of sale equipment leasing,
especially given the state of the current economy.
In today's business environment, it is essential that businesses do everything they can to effectively
compete and, most notably, increase profits. Point of Sale equipment has become a vital resource for those
businesses looking to stay ahead of the game, especially now that competition is heavy among on-line
It is widely known that technology is constantly updated and older equipment quickly becomes obsolete.
Leasing technological equipment, unlike purchasing, allows businesses the flexibility to upgrade to a
newer enhanced model during the lease term. "This is essential to a business effectively competing in
today's marketplace," explains Northern Leasing, "access to the latest technology in the market ensures a
business's maximum performance."
For those businesses with a limited budget, equipment leasing is an ideal option as lessors do not require a
significant down payment and, if there is a down payment, the amount required is small compared to the
large upfront cost of buying equipment, according to Northern Leasing. In addition, the monthly lease or
rent is affordable even for start-up businesses looking to increase profits with POS equipment.
Leasing equipment for a business allows the business to utilize its financial resources in more ways and to
save business credit for future projects and expenses. When a business opts to lease equipment, it
eliminates the large upfront expenditure associated with purchasing and its credit remains healthy and
isn't negatively affected by "maxed-out" credit limits.
Another benefit of leasing business equipment is the tax advantages offered thereby, notes Northern
Leasing. Purchases automatically incur sales tax as opposed to leased assets which incur use taxes as each
periodic payment is made. Since the equipment remains the property of the lessor, the rental payments to
the lessor for the use of the leased equipment can be deducted as rental expense for tax purposes. Northern
Leasing recommends that businesses talk to a finance professional with regard to the tax privileges
associated with leasing.
Leasing allows businesses access to equipment that they may otherwise be unable to afford. Given the state
of our current economy and limited access to lending, leasing is a viable option for those businesses
looking to stay competitive and reserve their resources.
