Leasing a copier can be good sense for many companies. Los Angeles Copier Sales offers an extensive selection of brand–name refurbished and new copiers for sale or lease.
Leasing involves a contract, which needs to be carefully reviewed for clauses such as those allowing for annual price increases, or those spelling out when and how the copier should be returned. Automatic renewal terms may be buried in the fine print.
So–called free early upgrades are not really free, as the balance of the lease payments due on the old copier is simply added to the cost of the upgraded unit.
Leases are not required for obtaining service or supply plans. Those plans may be purchased separately if the company already owns a copier and doesn’t wish to lease a replacement.
The financial aspects of leasing versus buying need to be reviewed by the company’s accountants, as well as by the person responsible for preparing the income tax returns. Lease payments may be deducted as operating expenses. Purchased equipment must be depreciated over time, which may or may not be advantageous to the company.
