Why Consider Leasing?   |   Why Lease with Brentwood?

Why Consider Leasing?

  • Conserve Capital

Leasing allows you to pay for your equipment incrementally while you receive revenues for its use.  This allows you to have additional cash which can be re-invested into your company.

  • Off-Balance Sheet

Operating leases allow for payments to be used as an operating expense rather than being put on the balance sheet as a depreciable asset.  This allows you to pay for equipment using pre-tax dollars and keeps balance sheet ratios high.

  • Maximize Cash Flow

Leasing improves cash flow by providing a payment which is lower than other means of financing.  Most leases are structured as less than 100% payouts, which allows your payments to be reduced.

  • Protection from Technical Obsolescence

Leasing prevents you from owning equipment that depreciates rapidly and becomes obsolete.  This also enables you to keep up with technology by replacing equipment that no longer meets your needs.

  • Preserve your existing Credit Lines

By allowing is to provide financing for your equipment, you free-up your additional financing sources. This will ensure that you are using the most competitive resources available.
