A Quick Guide to Leasing

At various times in a company’s life there is the need to buy new equipment.  You may either buy the equipment outright for cash or there are several different options available to acquiring this equipment and this will depend on your company, what equipment you wish to acquire and whether you wish to own the equipment or are happy to lease it and then sell it or return it to the finance company.   To decide whether it is better to buy or lease or indeed if you would be eligible for leasing you need to be clear on a number of things;  

The Depreciation of Cars

When buying a new car, we usually have a few makes and models in mind.  We all have our favourites.  You should however also consider how long and what you are going to use your car for.  Are you someone who likes to change their car every 3 to 4 years or do you buy a car and then keep it for as long as it doesn’t cost too much to repair, say 10 or more years?  If you are the latter, and use a car until it is very old you do not need to worry about the depreciation of the car as unless it is a classic and in very good condition, the high mileage and age of the vehicle will mean you will you will only get a fraction of what you bought it for.

When you decide to sell your car, the depreciation which has occurred will depend on several different factors and these boil down to the make and model of the car, the mileage, the condition, service history and specification.
