Overview

Over 3,200 companies use the Lease vs. Buy Analyzer. A complete lease vs. buy analysis would take over four hours without a computer, but with the Lease vs. Buy Analyzer it can take less than two minutes. Those firms believe in the program and so do I. If you don't think the program has paid for itself in its very first use, you can send it back for a full refund.

Your client is thinking, "Why are so many sales people trying to get me to lease?" Maybe it's not a good deal for your client, but it's a great deal for the sales person. Is the sales person making a killing with the residual value when the lease is up? Or, is the sales person so eager to make a sale that the lease is a great deal. Your client needs your help to make the correct decision.

You will find that the Lease Vs Buy Calculator is good for all types of equipment, particularly vehicles. The program has the most current depreciation limits and lease inclusion amounts for vehicles. All currently allowed personal property depreciation methods are included with this program.

You can view and print detailed and summary schedules. The Summary Schedule is excellent for presentation to clients. The detailed schedules comprehensively support the summary schedules. Numerous depreciation methods are available for the purchase scenario. The program can also generate depreciation lapsing and loan amortization schedules if needed. The program analyzes the lease and buy scenarios from both the net cashflow and net present value basis.

Use for business or personal assets.

The Lease Vs Buy Analyzer can be a big money saver, particularly when doing a lease vs purchase analysis for high priced assets like tractor - trailers, earthmoving machines, forklifts, etc.

For comprehensive information, download the program's manual.
