2014 might be the best year in recent time to begin expanding if you’re a small business.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 12, 2014
LeaseQ CEO and Founder Vernon Tirey was quoted, that despite present uncertainty, better times are coming, if they haven’t started to arrive already. “Without a doubt, we’re still in a bit of a hangover from the financial crisis of the late 2000’s,” Tirey said. “But the outlook is optimistic in the short term, at least so far in the first four months of 2014.”

In January, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) conducted a survey of small businesses and they found that as a whole, small business owners plan to expand their purchasing for the rest of 2014. Despite these predictions, optimism had only risen in November from the October numbers by 0.9 points to 92.5. At that point in time, small business owners cited concerns about capital outlays and extending themselves too far.
After hitting an all-time low of 45 points in 2012, capital outlays have continued to rise since that point in time, reaching the mid-fifties at the end of 2013. And with credit for small businesses improving, the equipment leasing and financing industry is experiencing some of the most robust growth in its history.
This trend appears to be backed up by a study done by the Wall Street Journal in late 2013. The Journal surveyed 937 small business owners and found that 52% of small businesses were anticipating an improvement in the economy in 2014 with 38% feeling the economy would be even better in 2014 than the previous year. In that same study, 75 percent of those small businesses surveyed expected better sales in 2014 as well.
Tirey’s LeaseQ is experiencing this improvement firsthand in greater demand for leasing and financing services through LeaseQ’s proprietary One Touch Platform. Positive trends in the equipment leasing industry have led the continued growth in LeaseQ’s business but that growth is not solely a result of the rising tide of the equipment leasing industry. Many of the leases that LeaseQ brokers include small business owners looking to either expand or upgrade their current equipment, indicating an optimistic outlook for sales growth for these very same small businesses in the coming year.
Continued Tirey, “2014 might be the best year in recent time to begin expanding if you’re a small business. It could be the best time to get financing to fund expanding operations whether it’s expanding into new office space or upgrading and expanding the equipment needed for continued or growing operations. We’re seeing this optimism firsthand in leasing and financing in the small business sector.”
