What advantages does renting offer your company ?

When you purchase IT equipment outright, it has a typical depreciation period of five years. Renting removes the effective tax-related life cycle, allowing you to keep your technology fresh. By allowing you to introduce new systems at an earlier stage, renting makes you more responsive to ever-changing market imperatives. This translates into far greater flexibility, not only in terms of technology but more importantly in terms of your finances.

What’s more, if you rent, you avoid tying up valuable capital. This is especially important for companies that need to maintain relatively high liquidity. Whereas previously you may have felt forced to continue to use the equipment for longer than really desirable, when you rent you are no longer tied to lengthy depreciation periods.

Another major advantage is that renting is as good as cash when it comes to discounts, such as for early payment. This is why many companies choose to rent even when there are no tax advantages, as it enables them to negotiate with suppliers as though they are paying cash.

We offer IT Equipment, software and IT services rental based on for 2,3,4 or 5 years depending on the type of equipment required.
