How will my overhead change if I lease equipment?
Looking at leased equipment as adding another “employee” is a different way to look at your production costs. While doing that, you need to factor in the monthly expense of it, and how much more you will have to produce to pay the rent on that piece of equipment. If the volume is there, you can keep lease costs down to single-digit percentages. If you must stretch every month to pay off that new auto, think again.
