- If your business needs will stay the same over the next 3 - 5 years, leasing is a great option that can help you reduce your monthly costs. There are 2 types of leases, FMV Fair Market Value, that you return the equipment at the end of your lease (also have a buy-out option at the end). Or a $ 1.00 buy-out option. This way you can own the equipment without having to put all of the cash up front.
