|Capital outlay upfront
|Improves ‘equity ratio’ ‘current ratio’ and ‘return on assets ratio’ on financial ratio analysis.
|Has to be capitalised
|Software, installation, and control cards can be included in the rental.
|The option to upgrade equipment is available free of additional V.A.T. on original equipment and if the same supplier is used for new equipment, a preferential discounted figure is given – effectively this is a higher “trade-in” amount.
|Extraordinarily little to no value is attached to trade-in or 2nd hand equipment after a period of +/- 3 years and therefore capital would effectively be lost when new equipment is purchased. No return on capital would be recognised.
