You would like to lease a security system to put your money to better use than tying it up in a security system.

Basically a good idea!

You will receive 2 offers upon your request, one from Tolle-Warensicherung-GmbH and one from Eastek Systems.

Tolle Warensicherungs GmbH offers you a term of 36 months

Eastek offers you a term of 54 months.

60 months are too long, too much interest goes to the leasing bank and the order goes to Tolle-Warensicherung- GmbH...Congratulations!

You now record the installment as an expense every month and reduce the company's income and, in parallel with the reduction in theft, you also save taxes, so item security is fun!


After 5 years the nice tax officer registers for the audit and cancels your tax savings on leasing for 36 months...oh no, How could that be?

Many companies on the Internet are happy about a leasing contract because the money is available immediately from the leasing bank, often plus commission, what happens later doesn't matter to the seller at first.

It is important to us that we continue to serve you as a satisfied customer in 10 years, which is why we expressly point out the general conditions:

Full amortization leasing

The leasing contract must be concluded for a certain period of time and can be used during this period if both parties fulfill the contract properly cannot
be terminated (no right of termination).

This is the so-called basic rental period.

During this basic rental period, the lessee's leasing installments must at least cover the acquisition/production costs as well as additional costs including the lessor's financing costs

According to these two leasing decrees, the decisive criterion for the tax attribution of the leasing object is the length of the basic rental period:

Is it between 40% and 90% of the normal useful life of the leasing object to be calculated according to AfA , it is attributed to the lessor.

The lessee can then deduct the leasing installments as operating expenses.

AFA for article surveillance 12 years = 144 months x 40% = 57.6 months minimum term if the tax advantage is to be used.

Short explanation in my words:

There are depreciation periods for all goods (AfA=deduction for wear and tear), For the article surveillance system, the tax office specifies

a useful life of 12 years, the depreciation would have to run over this period.

When leasing, 40-90% of this period must be fulfilled:

12 years = 144 months x 40% = 57.6 months minimum term

12 years = 144 months x 90% = 129.6 months maximum term

Our advice does not replace legal or tax advice, but it still helps us to ask!

Kind regards
