Purchasing business assets.

Speaker: Westpac's Davidson Institute

Growing businesses will generally need more assets but a common dilemma for many business owners is “When is the right time to buy these assets?”  Under-utilisation of equipment is costly, but so is losing customers because we can’t fulfil their needs due to a lack of the right equipment.  This dilemma can be reduced somewhat by understanding what drives the need for assets, how they will support the business in generating income or efficiencies, and what are the key considerations when buying and funding your business assets.
