Leasing is simply a means of financing a significant purchase. It is an alternative to undertaking a bank loan, or spending your cash on hand. It allows you to acquire the equipment that your business needs immediately but spread out the cost of the equipment while it is generating income.
It is almost always financially beneficial to lease equipment which depreciates.
In order to be considered for a lease, you must be a Canadian business (either corporation or proprietorship) looking to finance equipment with a minimum cost of $2000. The size of the business doesn’t matter; and both established businesses and start-ups can benefit.
