Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
Argh! The high cost of buying all that office and computer equipment for your small business! It's enough to drive you to . . . leasing. That's right. Many start-ups are taking advantage of equipment leasing, and for good reason.
"Leasing offers people the opportunity to do things they couldn't afford to do otherwise," says Cynthia Walker, president of CW Leasing in Marina Del Rey, California. "Anything you purchase can be acquired through lease financing, including computer systems, office furniture, light industrial equipment, even installed phone and security systems."
Leasing also gives you flexibility that purchasing can't. Many small companies, especially start-ups, have unusual cash flow patterns and irregular streams of income.
