Buy or Rent? Making the Right Move for Your Business Equipment.

PRESS RELEASE • 7 June 2023 

At Digicape, we understand the importance of staying ahead in the fast-paced world of business, and that's why we're here to help you explore the best options for upgrading your tech. Whether you're a growing enterprise or a well-established business, the decision to buy or rent your equipment is a crucial one, and we're here to guide you through the process. 

In today's business landscape, technology plays a pivotal role in achieving success, but we also recognise that it comes with significant expenses. When it comes to acquiring business equipment, the question of whether to buy or rent often arises. Let's delve into the benefits of each option to help you make an informed choice. 

Should you rent or own your business equipment?  

It's a common dilemma, considering that equipment depreciates over time and can quickly become obsolete. Managing owned asset inventory can be time-consuming, and the costs associated with disposal can be a financial challenge. 

Buying offers ownership and long-term investment, but the upfront costs can strain cash flow. That's where Digicape's tailored financing options come in, with solutions designed for businesses of all sizes and industries. 

Renting business equipment through Digicape offers flexibility, reduced financial strain, and regular equipment upgrades. This keeps your business ahead of the curve while freeing up working capital for other critical areas. Compared to ownership, renting provides several advantages: 

  • Access to the latest tech and supporting software without a hefty price tag. 
  • No large capital outlay or deposits are required. 
  • Flexible monthly or quarterly instalments over 12-36 months. 
  • Rentals are fully tax-deductible as off-balance sheet items. 
  • No worrying about depreciating old assets. 
  • The choice to upgrade, rent-to-buy, or extend during the rental period. 
  • Flexibility, affordability, and staying technologically current are priorities, making renting the best way to support your team as they close those deals. 

With rentals, you can regularly upgrade your equipment without the hassle of selling or disposing of outdated assets. Another benefit is the potential tax advantages, as rental payments can often be fully deductible as a business expense, providing potential tax savings.
