Waiting until 2014 for your digital display could be a costly mistake

Don’t let a limited budget keep you from adding digital signage this year.

With the Section 179 Deduction and the help of a capital lease, getting a display before the end of 2013 could be more affordable than ever.

Giant corporations aren’t the only ones who can benefit from digital signage; from the local theater owner to the niche retail store, adding an LED display can give you the space you need for better ad revenue, brand messaging, advertising, and more. That being said, LED displays can’t always find space in your budget, and you find yourself in the constant cycle of “maybe next year we can do it.” Instead of “maybe next year,” it’s time to try out a new maybe: “Maybe a capital lease is right for my company.”

Small companies can use a capital lease to distribute the expense of an LED display over time, giving them more flexibility in their budget and better peace of mind. For larger companies, a capital lease may still be helpful, as it allows you better management of your cash-flow.

How does the Section 179 deduction really help?

The main benefit of a non-tax capital lease is that you can still take full advantage of the Section 179 Deduction, yet make smaller payments. With a non-tax capital lease you can acquire and write-off up to $500,000 worth of equipment this year, without actually spending $500,000 this year. A small business that is managing cash flow can leverage a non-tax capital lease to minimize out-of-pocket cash and still take the full Section 179 Deduction.
