Financial Impact of renting

Renting is an operating expense of an organisation. It is a cost of the assets, owned by someone else, used by the organisation. It is the cheapest option to utilise assets whether for a short term or long term. Usually such kind of renting agreements are being entered into by the organisations to reduce their capital expenditure. This helps them to reduce their cash outflow and there is usually flexibility to use such assets over a period of time lesser than the life of the asset. This theory fits true for all assets, be it a car or laptops and computers.

IT Resources Renting

Financially, renting is an ideal way to reduce your IT assets cost. The operating cash flows of the company could be saved on a greater extent if the organisation wishes to opt for rented IT resources than purchasing the assets.

IT resources that encompass laptops, computers, servers, tablets, apple products, SAP HANA servers, etc. If you purchase these products for your organisation, it will cost you the following-

  1. Cost of the IT asset
  2. Insurance charges

An IT asset that you purchase would cost you a bomb, whereas the rental charge for the similar asset would be a reasonable amount that you may have to pay as per the agreed terms. The amount saved by not purchasing the asset is a kind of interest free loan which you could use it in your business and make profits from it.

This will have 2 basic implication-

  1. The organization will not have to borrow capital from outside, hence you save upon your finance cost or interest cost. This is a kind of indirect income for the organization adopting the rental IT resource model.
  2. The lesser you take loans, the better is your credit score which will help you to avail loans at a reduced rate of interest in future. And expansion of your business would come at a quicker pace than earlier projected.
