Keeping up with the latest fitness or beauty equipment can be an expensive challenge for established gyms, spas, hair salons and health clubs. For new leisure businesses starting out, the initial out lay on equipment and fitting out the venue, not to mention advertising and staff costs, can be almost overwhelming. However, leasing gym and beauty salon equipment provides the perfect solution for new and established businesses of all sizes.
More and more businesses in the health and beauty industries are turning to leasing as an alternative to buying, and with very good reason. By leasing assets you can improve your cash flow by keeping your working capital free. This leaves you with funds available for more pressing requirements such as staff salaries, promotional materials or new business opportunities.
No one wants to work out in a gym with outdated equipment or visit a beauty salon that doesn’t offer the latest treatments. With leasing, equipment can be added or upgraded at any time during the lease period without having to repurchase, so you will always have the most up-to-date equipment to ensure your business stays ahead of the game. This means you will never be left with obsolete equipment in a way that would not be possible with an outright purchase.
Choosing a leasing scheme also gives you a greater degree of flexibility as lease agreements can be tailored to your exact needs. Agreements can be over an agreed period, for example two years, and repayments can be made monthly, quarterly or annually, by direct debit or invoice, whichever is most convenient. Lease payments can also be set against profit, thereby potentially reducing your tax bill.
