Lease vs. Buy analysis for IT, fleet, and equipment

Easy for non-financial users

Do you have visibility into all the leasing decisions being made in your organization? At many large companies, thousands, if not tens of thousands, of people might be empowered to initiate a lease. How do you know that they are making the best economic decisions for your company?

We can help you institute a standardized Lease vs. Buy process for all your employees around the world. We will give the stakeholders in each country and business unit our Asset Request Form. It is an easy-to-use tool that they can use to submit a Lease vs. Buy analysis request. And it doesn’t require an MBA in corporate finance to use.

Stop using outdated spreadsheets

Calculate using the latest market rates

Are your employees using the latest market data and corporate financial ratios to evaluate leasing decisions? At many companies, decision makers are working off spreadsheets on their desktops populated with interest rates from 24 months ago.

With our automated Lease vs. Buy tool, your treasury organization can centrally control all corporate financial variables. Incremental borrowing rate, debt rate, equity rate, fiscal year, tax calendar, and federal and state tax rates can all be centrally managed. The employee requesting the equipment only needs to provide information they know – such as the make, model, serial number, quantity, and unit price.

All the data needed to justify Lease vs. Buy

Accounting classification, tax, and cash flow analysis

We will not only tell you whether to lease or buy the equipment, but also provide all the supporting documentation and analysis. You will get an indicative lease accounting classification for both the new (FASB ASU 2016-02, IFRS 16) and old standards (FASB ASC 842, IAS 17). You will also get a break-even analysis, tax deduction summaries, and annual and monthly cash flow schedules for both the lease and buy scenarios.
