Advantages of Buying or Hiring Fridges in Brisbane


There are many types of businesses that require commercial refrigeration equipment to preserve their merchandise or products. Restaurants and grocery stores need heavy duty fridges to keep their perishable food supplies from spoiling. Florists always use refrigerators to help prolong the life of floral arrangements so they don't wilt before customers receive their deliveries.

If you are looking to replace broken refrigerators or if you need to get equipment for your new business, you have the options of buying or renting fridges. There are advantages and you need to carefully consider them before signing your name on a purchase or renting contract.

Advantages of Buying Equipment


There are several advantages when buying it outright whether it is a copier or commercial refrigeration. One is they belong to your business after you buy them. Since you have constant, long-term refrigeration needs and the technology for this type of equipment is rarely outdated, it is to your advantage not to pay monthly fee for years.

Buying your commercial refrigeration equipment comes with tax incentives as well. Each tax period, you can claim the depreciation on your taxes to help lower your tax burden. However, before doing so, you need to speak to a tax expert to help you figure out the amount of your depreciation as it will change as your equipment ages.

Your business can potentially save money for buying fridges if you purchase used or refurbished equipment. Rather than buying brand new refrigeration equipment, buying used equipment can save you thousands of dollars. Since most pre-owned equipment usually isn't eligible for long-term rentals, this is the best way to save money when you need newer refrigerators.

Advantages of Hiring Equipment


If you are opening a new business that requires refrigeration, renting or hiring the equipment may be a good option for your budget. New refrigeration equipment would require an outlay of several thousand dollars, money that your business may not be able to afford to spend.

With rent a fridge, you can keep your capital for other business necessities. By paying a monthly fridges rental fee, you still get what you need at a price you can afford. There are also several tax advantages for renting or hiring equipment as well. For instance, the business doesn't own the equipment for tax purposes and with rent fridges, you don't have to pay GST as you would when buying the equipment outright.

Usually, at the end of the hire term, you have the option to buy the equipment or hire newer equipment. Since it is already in place, you can get a greater price on the equipment you already have and keep it for your company. Before deciding if you want to buy, hire or rent a refrigeration equipment, consult your accountant for the best financial option for your business.
