With leasing, you are able to customize a program to address your needs & requirements - cash flow, budget, transaction structure, cyclical fluctuations, etc. For example, some leases allow you to miss one or more payments without a penalty, an important feature for seasonal businesses.
Section 179 is a great way to accelerate your tax benefits. Under Section 179, you can expense 100% of the cost of equipment acquired in 2018 up to $1,000,000. Depending on your tax bracket, you can save a portion of that equipment cost in tax savings. To take advantage of Section 179, we can structure your lease with a PUT (Purchase Upon Termination) option at the end of the term, such as $1, or a larger predefined amount such as 10% or 20%. At the end of term, equipment must be purchased or the lease renewed to be eligible for this deduction (equipment cannot be returned).

The IRS does not consider an operating lease to be a purchase, but rather a tax-deductible overhead expense. Therefore, you can deduct the lease payments from your business income. Also, because lease payments are treated as expenses on a company's income statement, equipment does not have to be depreciated over five to seven years.
