Rent, lease, buy or bundle
Renting – Pros / Cons
Pro’s – good for cash flow, get what you need now without having to wait. 100% Tax deductable, upgrade at the end of the term to the latest equipment.
Con’s – You never own the equipment
Leasing – Pros / Cons
Pro’s – Like renting good for cash flow, get what you need now without having to wait. 100% Tax deductable, owner ship od equipment at term.
Con’s – Ballon payment
Pro’s – Not a lot of pros here, due to the speed at which technology moves we recommend either renting or bundling new business equipment
Con’s – Cash Flow and poor resale business dollars could be better spent
Bundle but be carful
Very popular method of obtaing office equipment. Bundling is here you place the telephone system on your existing telephone account. There are some good and some very bad. Basic rule of thumb is beware when the system is offered for FREE. We all know that nobody get something for nothing.
We use and recommended Telstra TBS as the most cost effective bundle solution, it works like this.
You need a new telephone system and let’s say the lease / rent amount it is $145.00 per month
The customer receives up to 14% rebate calculated on the existing Telstra account let’s say that’s $1,500 per month therefore 14% of $1,000.00 = $140 rebate
OK. we have $145.00 outgoing cost and a $140.00 incoming cost making the net effective system cost only $5.00 per month.
