“Grooveshark has been working with NFS Leasing for close to 3 years. We started looking for lease financing at a very early stage in our company’s history, and although we were a small young company, NFS took the time to listen to our story and provided much needed IT leasing at the time. NFS played an integral part in our initial growth phase, and much of the equipment we leased from NFS formed the backbone for what today is a music streaming service with 30 million users.”

What is an equipment lease?

An equipment lease is a finance rental arrangement between an equipment owner (the lessor) and a business owner (the lessee). The lessee gets to use the equipment by paying the lessor monthly lease payments over a mutually agreed upon term length.

Why businesses Lease vs. Buy?

The principal motive for leasing equipment is cash flow ”the ability to get equipment now without a major one-time expenditure of cash.” This enables the business to better match expenses with revenue and protect against obsolescence.

Other businesses may prefer to lease because their tax situation is such that it cannot benefit from the depreciation. It may also wish to maintain a debt-equity ratio that will attract new investment more easily, and leasing (rather than investment) will accomplish that.

And, those companies engaged in rapidly evolving technological market, use leased equipment under short-term leases permitting it the opportunity to exchange new and better equipment more rapidly than would with ownership of a capital lease.
