You may be basking in the warm summer air now, but the holidays will be here before you know it. One of the many questions you’re probably asking yourself right now is “how can I get ahead of the rush and prepare my business for the holidays?” Don’t worry, AP Lazer has tips on how to get started making money with a laser cutter.
Did you Know?
According to the National Retail Federation, 20 to 40 percent of yearly sales for small and mid-sized retailers take place within the last two months of the year. Mind = blown.
As a small business owner, what does that mean for you? Well, the answer is simple – purchase your AP Lazer now to ensure you have ample time for delivery, training, and perfecting a variety of high-value, (and even higher-profit!) products in time for the holiday season. You’ve done the research and know that now is the time to invest in a laser engraving machine from AP Lazer. Commit to acting now for you, your business, and your future. Doing so will prepare you for success during the busiest time of the year!
As an added incentive, the success of the holiday rush may even help you pay off your laser machine.
Purchasing your AP Lazer now will ensure that you have:
- Ample time for delivery and set up
- AP Lazer training under your belt
- Time to learn the machine and perfect your product line-up
- An opportunity to start marketing your business and get the word out about your new offerings
- The opportunity to write off your machine purchase on your 2021 taxes with Section 179 (more on that below!)
Section 179 Tax Write Off
While we understand taxes are a necessary evil, after surely we can all agree no one likes to deal with the hassle that comes with having to fill out all the paperwork and file them. BUT what if we told you there was a way to exponentially increase your profits this quarter, and every quarter to follow, as well as legally get out of paying a large portion of taxes for your business?
Of course, you would take advantage! What’s the best part though? Glad you asked. Section 179 can be used in combination with our finance to own programs. You get the laser machine in your hands, start making money with it, and you’ll get a majority, if not all of the deduction this year. This means that you’ll end up deducting more than you even pay in 1 year for your AP Lazer machine!
What is Section 179?
To sum it up, Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. As the official Section 179 site states, “It’s an incentive created by the U.S. government to encourage businesses to buy equipment and invest in themselves.” You can learn about all of the Section 179 details at Section179.org.
Not only will you be able to hit some BIG revenue goals, but when you receive your AP Lazer by the end of the year, but you’ll also be eligible for the Section 179 tax deduction! (aka – you can write your machine purchase off on your taxes!)
Since we’re not tax experts, you’ll want to talk to your accountant for more details.
