That said, you also need to consider your budget. If your finances are tight, you should definitely consider leasing.
The way leasing works is that you don’t actually acquire the machine outright. In this respect, it is identical to renting. Instead, you pay a monthly fee for a certain period agreed upon in our contract. This not only has tax benefits. It will also positively affect your balance sheet, since it raises your equity ratio.
At the end of the contractual term, you can then make a final balloon payment to fully acquire the vending machine – which isn’t possible when renting a machine. If you intend to use a vending machine for a longer period of time, it may be more affordable to lease instead of renting it.
