The LED rental is catching on, but is it worth it? If for so many years no one had ever thought of inserting light bulbs among the rentable capital goods, there was a reason, and you could tell when they burned out. But then came the LED.
There LED technology changed the cards on the table for two reasons. The first is that it allows high savings on electricity consumption, with a rather short return on investment. The second is that the LED bulbs they last much longer, up to 100,000 hours, reducing maintenance costs associated with lights.
Obviously we are talking about something for companies. Hardly a LED rental may be of interest to a private individual, if he does not have to illuminate a sheikh's villa. A company, on the other hand, can find advantageous arguments in this mode of use, to be compared with some possible disadvantages.
LED rental: arguments in favor
The LED rental it has all the advantages of operating leasing of capital goods on its side: there is no need to commit capital and it does not weigh down the balance sheet; the rent in the income statement remains fully deductible for both IRES and IRAP purposes; there are no minimum durations and at the end of the contract more options are possible; the fee is fixed and includes all risk insurance of the asset, possibly in addition to maintenance, management, remote control and more.
In the case of a LED relamping, the installments can be calculated in default on the real savings in the bill. For example: bill 100, savings 30, installment 20. Thus the company immediately benefits from a 'gain' of resources that can be allocated elsewhere. The duration of the fee usually varies from 24 to 72 months and after the payment of the last installment the lighting system can be purchased still fully functional. Furthermore, with the rental, the risk of investing in the wrong products is avoided because the lessor is responsible for the quality of the leased assets.
LED rental: arguments against
At the end of the rental, the purchase of the asset is expected at an initially agreed price. This price is difficult to calibrate and added to the individual installments can make the investment more burdensome than the purchase. The operating rental formula may be incompatible with access to public tenders or incentives.
In the case of long rentals, the technology may already prove to be obsolete at the end of the contract and make the final maxirate inexpensive. An incomplete or unclear contract on some aspects, for example on the maintenance item, or a contract stipulated with an unreliable supplier, can hide a halter.
Do you want to test the advantages of LED lighting? Start at home with the relamping of some light points. You can also buy LED bulbs online, here for example traditional bulbs with E27 socket:
From traditional teardrop bulbs:
Teardrop LED bulb E27 9.5W = 60W (60W warm white light)
LED drop bulb E27 6W = 40W (40W warm white light)
At spotlight type bulbs:
LED bulb E27 16W = 160W 1550 lumen (160W cold white light)
LED bulb E27 16W = 160W 1550 lumen (160W warm white light)
LED bulb E27 12W = 120W 900 lumen (120W cold white light)
LED bulb E27 12W = 120W 900 lumen (120W warm white light)
