Rentals - How does it benefit the Client? Cost Saving: By using a rental, the client is retaining his working capital. Additional Facilities: By offering a rental, you are assisting your client by insuring that he does not utilize existing finance facilities, which may be limited. VAT Savings: The VAT on a rental is raised on the monthly payment and not capitalized "up front", as is leasing and instant sale. This results in saving on early settlements/upgrades. The client may deduct the VAT charged on the monthly rental against any output of VAT Due to the Receiver. Tax Advantages: The rentals are fully deductible in the period in which they are incurred. This may enable the client to "accelerate" depreciation on normally "long-term" assets. Off Balance Sheet: The rental is still accepted as an off balance sheet item for accounting purposes. This has a positive effect on balance sheet ratios an end of rental procedures. There is a saving of costly administration as fixed asset registers and depreciation schedules are not affected. Cost in Use: The client pays only for monthly usage of the equipment. This assists with budgeting and cost management. A rental can be structured to suit his needs: start up costs can be kept to a minimum. Ease of Upgrade/Replacement: The rental product caters for the addition of equipment or replacement thereof, on the same agreement. Transaction schedules are all that is needed, in addition, settlements on replaced products are lower as a result of deferred VAT. No CAPEX Budget: Rentals do not require CAPITAL expenditure budgets. The monthly rental can be structured to fall within the client’s monthly budgeted allowance.
