When considering the cost of running a small business, one major expense is the equipment needed to make the business profitable. The average office needs a desk, chairs and a computer at the least.
For a business with multiple employees, these fundamentals need to be purchased for them as well. If any machinery or specific tools are needed for the company, the equipment costs can skyrocket. Once the equipment is purchased, in order to keep a business profitable, the equipment needs to be upgraded as it becomes obsolete or breaks down.
Equipment is a major ongoing cost for any small business but it is necessary for a company to stay competitive and profitable.
It’s difficult to secure funding to support a businesses need for equipment or even meet the needs of maintenance and upgrading that equipment.
