Purchasing Devices

Invest in the future of your safety

When considering investing in new safety devices and technology, you need to decide between Capital Expenditures (CapEx) or Operational Expenses (OpEx). There are advantages to using CapEx funds that allow you to procure fixed assets such as new equipment and software for benefits beyond the current tax year.

Since the upfront cost can be substantial, budgeting for CapEx involves setting money aside. It usually also means that a more stringent process is required to be followed to get approvals on these purchases.

CapEx purchase benefits:

  • Some funding, grant and loan programs are applicable for CapEx only.
  • The one-time purchases of devices can be expensed using depreciation over multiple years.
  • Can result in a higher value of assets on a company’s balance sheet – more value for investors.
  • Purchasing outright today ensures you are immune to future price increases.
  • Your company is the equipment’s sole owner – no looming regular payments over the coming years.
  • Easy to split costs with other departments or initiatives (e.g. ESG)
  • Costs may be able to be passed on to end users (e.g rate riders)
