What are the main benefits of renting equipment?ASG IT financing

  • Firstly, renting equipment offers customers the possibility to better budget their rental payment plans, according to their current cash-flow. The equipment being rented will always be top-notch and the best technology, thus keeping you ahead of the competition.
     
  • Avoid lengthy administration processes, such as updating your fixed asset register, depreciation schedules and so on.
     
  • IT Financing and Rentals shows up as an operating expense on your income statement, rather than showing up on your balance sheet as an asset. In return, this improves your companies gearing and credit health.
     
  • Renting also allows businesses to claim the VAT back from the government on rental payments.
     
  • CAPEX investment purchases can also be done, regardless of whether there is no CAPEX budget available.
     

Some of the other advantages and features of renting equipment include:

  • Rental payments can easily be structured to suit budget restrictions and any form of financial constraints, thus leading to more capital freedom.
     
  • Large budgets are not needed for better equipment, as you’re renting rather than buying.
     

Tax and VAT benefits associated with renting.

  • VAT will not be capitalized at the beginning of the renting period, but rather paid on a monthly basis, thus reducing the initial costs. VAT can also be claimed back in some cases.
     

Credit and deposit benefits

  • It's worth pointing out that no early deposits are required, thus helping reduce the capital outlay. Additionally, using renting rather than other forms of funding methods will not affect your businesses available credit facilities with the banks.
     

Upgrading and rental options

  • Perhaps one of the biggest benefits associated with renting equipment is the fact that equipment can constantly be upgraded, without having to spend large sums of money whenever the technology being used needs a boost.
     
  • Rental options from our company are carefully structured judging by the budget of each company. Based on this, numerous escalation options of 0%, 12%, 15% and even more annually are being offered. The rental terms range from 24, 36, and go up until 60 months.

Benefits of Renting

  • The administration processes also completely disappear, as the funds will simply be extracted from the company’s account on a monthly basis, hence no money needs to be sent separately.
  • Judging by everything that has been outlined so far, by renting IT equipment, customers can enjoy their full use while paying a considerably lower price, while also getting access to the top equipment available on the market.
  • Not only this, but if the equipment is used correctly, and business goes well, then chances are that it will quickly pay the renting cost all by itself, thus granting customers access to virtually free IT equipment.
  • We are probably the best choice from all computer support companies in South Africa, and offer operations in numerous cities, including Johannesburg, Sandton, Pretoria, Midrand, Cape Town, PE and Durban.

  • Apart from us, most IT companies in Gauteng don’t offer services of such a high-quality either.
