Leasing Scales & Weighing Equipment

Investing in weighing equipment for your site is an important task. Whether you need to monitor incoming and ongoing goods to maximise revenue, or have a legal requirement to weigh in order to keep your business running, weighing equipment can have a huge impact on your bottom line.

While many sites/businesses choose to invest in equipment outright, the current financial environment has seen a shift towards leasing plans. Whether this is because it allows for easier budget management, equipment flexibility or tax efficiency, many of our customers are seeing the benefits of leasing weighing equipment versus hire or purchase.

The benefits of scale leasing from Avery Weigh-Tronix include:

Controlling costs

Leasing conserves working capital and gives your business a fixed monthly cost. This can help with effective budgeting while keeping cash flow available for other expenditures. In addition, leasing your weighing equipment provides financing for 100% of the costs. The scale itself plus any peripherals, such as weight indicators, that might be required.

Self-financing equipment 

While there’s a commitment to making lease payments on a monthly basis, the money to cover these payments will come from future cash flow rather than an upfront payment. This allows your newly leased weighing equipment to pay for itself from the enhanced revenue that your company earns from the investment in new technology.

Faster budgetary approvals

We recognise that assets such as new weighbridges are a significant capital expenditure for any business. Approval for such projects can be a slow process. Because scale leasing requires no up-front cash investment, it offers an alternative way to get the equipment in place fast.

Tax implications of leasing 

Depending on the type of lease agreement, monthly lease payments can be classed as an ongoing business expense rather than a long-term debt, resulting in a more attractive balance sheet as well as offering additional tax benefits.

Who provides the funding?

We partner with a reputable leasing company to provide competitive finance solutions. This can then help you to afford the equipment you want in a way that suits your business finances.
