Get Equipped to Master Your Equipment Leases

As businesses navigate the complexities of the post-pandemic landscape, the question of whether to lease or buy equipment is more pertinent than ever. The global health crisis, followed by economic fluctuations, has significantly impacted the equipment leasing market, prompting organizations to reevaluate their leasing strategies and financial planning.

The Significance of Lease vs. Purchase Analysis

A thorough lease versus purchase analysis is at the core of any equipment financing decision. This fundamental strategy supports organizations in determining the most cost-effective method for acquiring equipment, considering the net present value of after-tax cash flows, correcting residual assumptions, and setting appropriate discount rates. This analysis is crucial for boardroom-level decision support and auditing, ensuring businesses make informed decisions aligning with their financial goals.

The Impact of the Pandemic on Equipment Leasing

Despite the challenges posed by the labor market, supply chain issues, and inflationary pressures, we’ve seen record years for equipment financing. The Equipment Lease Financing Association projects the market to grow from $1.1 trillion in 2020 to $2.5 trillion by 2030. This surge underscores the shifting preference towards leasing as a strategy for cash preservation and financial flexibility.

Navigating Lease Accounting Standards

The relatively recent accounting standard (ASC 842, IFRS 16, & GASB 87) updates have spotlighted lease execution, contract terms, and management. These standards necessitate heightened transparency and control over leasing contracts, pushing organizations to adopt best practices for managing the life cycle of leases. Consequently, there’s an increasing demand for sophisticated lease accounting and advisory services to navigate these complexities and optimize contract savings.
