There’s an age-old equipment leasing challenge: lease vs. buy. While the formula hasn’t changed, new rates and rules – part and parcel of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act – is substantially altering prior results. As tax rates fall so does the benefit of tax deductions. Similarly, the benefits of accelerated depreciation and limits on interest expense deductions can offset one another, upsetting traditional financing decisions.

When generalizing, the new rules can now favor lease financing more than ever before. But to make the right decisions, executives need to have the right information. To improve confidence in equipment financing choices, join Forbes Insights’ Bill Millar who will be moderating a webinar featuring Michael Valenti, VP, Pricing & Economics, Keybank Equipment Finance and Peter K. Bullen, Senior Vice President, Key Equipment Finance. During the discussion, we’ll address questions like:

• In general, how does the Tax Cuts and Job Act impact equipment financing?
• What are the key variables to consider, and how do they change under the new rules?
• How does accelerated depreciation for new or used equipment enter into the equation?
• At what point do companies need to consider the new rules for limiting interest deductions?
• How do expected increases in interest rates impact today’s financing decisions?
• How is the industry responding and how are leading businesses adjusting their equipment financing programs?
