Should I lease or buy my phone equipment?

Leasing can be reasonable, cost-efficient alternative to purchasing equipment.  Many times, tied in with the savings we can find in your telecommunications line service, we can offset the cost of a lease and provide you with a new telephone system for little to no additional expense over what you are currently paying per month for your existing telecommunications.

There are some tax advantages to leasing, which you will have to discuss with your accountant.  STC offers Dollar-Buyout leases, where you own your equipment at the end of the lease after buying it for a dollar.

In addition to that, whether you buy or lease, the government currently has a policy in effect that will allow you to write off the entire cost of your telecommunications system this year.  That can have the effect of reducing the cost of your system by up to 35% in real dollars.
