Does your business need a printer? A printer lease is a perfect solution and an easy way to enjoy all the benefits of a brand new, feature-packed printer without the associated upfront costs of buying a printer or fleet of printers outright.
Why lease a printer
No initial investment
Not every business has the available funds to buy a fleet of printers outright, multifunction office printers can cost as much as cars.
Printer leasing removes the burden of a hefty initial outlay while still delivering that top-spec printer your business needs.
Cash flow is king. Whether you’ve been in business for many years or just starting out, you know that business life is unpredictable and maintaining a healthy cashflow is essential. A printer lease allows you to maintain your cashflow with a small predictable monthly payment, instead of a large expense.
All printer lease payments can be deducted as a regular business expense, meaning your monthly lease payments are 100% tax-deductible.
Compare this to buying your printers outright where you can only claim 40% of the purchase price in the first year and 25% of the remaining balance after that. This makes a printer lease a very tax-efficient model of acquiring or upgrading expensive printing equipment for your business.
Just add paper
All printer leasing provided by Print Logic has the option of a Managed Print Service contract for the length of the lease term. This means that all consumables such as toners for a laser printer or ink for an inkjet printer are sent out to you to be replaced when required.
Our printers are installed with monitoring software that alerts us when you’re low on toner or ink, so we’ll know before you do that your printer requires some attention.
Length of the lease
It’s important to be confident your business will need a printer for the length of the lease term which is typically 3 to 5 years.
There is some flexibility on the length of term when the lease is agreed but it’s important to remember the shorter the term the more likely the fixed payments will be higher.
Considerations of a printer lease
Print speed is usually measured in pages per minute (ppm). We find print speeds of 20ppm or below are only suitable for smaller offices, while 25ppm and above is most common for medium-sized and growing offices.
Industries with large print volumes or enterprise businesses often require much higher printing speeds and the top machines on the market can achieve 100ppm.
Most people have wireless printers at home, but for a business environment, a wired connection is much more secure and provides the stability of a consistent connection.
Depending on your needs this could impact the placement of the printer in your office environment. Many office printers are also compatible with mobile printing technologies such as Apple Airprint, PaperCut Mobility Print, Sharpdesk Mobile and Lexmark Mobile Print.
Which printer features will allow your business to operate efficiently? Do you need additional paper trays or advance finishing options such as stapling, booklet making or hole punching?
Do you want to be able to monitor your business printing or print from mobile devices or even USB? Print Logic will discuss your requirements with you and recommend a machine that’s most suitable for your business.
