- Leasing an office copier can save businesses significant money instead of actually purchasing the copier. Especially with Sec 179 benefits for hardware.
- The money spent on a lease can be spread over a period of time that will reduce the money needed initially for an office copier.
- Generally with a lease, a service agreement is included that provides free service calls and covers the cost of major parts.
