The top 5 benefits of financing your business equipment

Finestream have been helping businesses thrive for the last 10 years. Over this time we have discovered many benefits for businesses who choose to finance their equipment. We have narrowed the list down to the top 5 benefits of financing your business equipment. Let’s get into it!

#1. Stay up to date with the latest tech

In most cases it’s vital that you’re working with the latest tech in order to maximise productivity and your output. However, as we all know, it’s not cheap to buy the latest gear! Equipment financing makes it possible for those businesses that might otherwise not have the capital needed to buy outright. There is also the bonus that leasing can allow you to update to new tech once your leasing term ends with relative ease and at a low cost.

#2. Consistent cash flow

Purchasing equipment for your business upfront can cause drastic fluctuations to your budget and leave you with cashflow issues, among other things! However, when you finance your new equipment you have the beauty of easy budget predictions because you know exactly how much you’re paying each month, this helps you maintain a consistent cashflow.

#3. Maintain working capital

Especially for small and medium-sized businesses, paying for equipment upfront is risky if it leaves you with little capital. It could be devastating if any unexpected expenses hit your business without enough working capital in the bank.
Choosing to finance lets you keep your capital in the bank, giving you confidence that if anything happens, you have the financial means to work through it.

#4. Tax benefits

There are different types of equipment financing that you could choose (we will go into some detail later in the blog), each comes with its own taxation benefits. Most businesses may be able to claim depreciation and interest paid, plus other potential deductions on the repayments themselves. It’s important to discuss with your accountant about what specific claims you could make.

#5. You can get approval quickly

The sooner you’re working with your new equipment, the greater your business output will be. And financing can really help speed up the entire process.

If you’re interested in financing new equipment for your business, there are some things you need to know so we’re able to give you the best financing options catered to you. These include:
  • Is the equipment additional or replacement?
