Tower Leasing

Why lease?

It is often assumed that while leasing allows you to buy what you need right away, it will cost more in the long run. If you’re a business then that’s not necessarily true. Tax relief means that leasing could actually save you money!

  • Keep cash within your business
  • Get the equipment you need now and not when budgets allow
  • Great tax advantages
  • Chance to upgrade and keep up with the latest technologies
  • Structured lease payments to suit your needs
  • Protect your existing credit lines
