Artwork Leasing

Leasing Terms | Art Leasing FAQ | Price Calculator

Need your office space a facelift? Why not lease some new artwork.

Leasing artwork can be the perfect solution to the décor decisions you have to make in your office or home space.

Lease Rental is 100% Tax Deductible

The main reason that the majority of companies lease rather than purchase art is that they use leasing as a method of reducing their tax bills. This is because lease rental is 100% tax deductible, meaning that all payments you make for your artwork are written off against your tax bill. For any profit-making business, this means a substantial saving in the real cost of acquiring art by lease rental. This could save you 20% on your lease payments, based on UK corporation tax rates.

Leasing is often referred to as ‘off balance sheet’ financing – a tremendous advantage to both large and small businesses.

When you sign up for a leasing contract you can pay upfront for the full leasing period or choose a monthly payment plan. A nonrefundable security deposit including the first three months’ payment is needed when signing up for a monthly leasing contract. There is a minimum volume requirement of 3 artwork for leasing.

How it works (Example)

Choose your favourite artworks and send me a request using my contact form. Remember that you have to select a minimum of 3 artwork. When you have selected all the artwork you like to lease just fill out the form and send it. I will come back to you with a leasing plan within 24h.

You have two ways of paying when leasing: Up Front (*) or on a monthly basis. The example is based on a 6 months leasing plan for 10 medium sized pigment prints (list price $450.00/each):

  1. Upfront payment for 6 months leasing of 10 medium sized artwork is $263.25/each – Total Cost: $2632.50 + Shipping
  2. Monthly payment total: Initial cost (**) of $1450.00 + $491.67/month in 3 months. Total Cost: $2925.00 + Shipping.

In the example over you will save $292.50 if the whole leasing period is paid upfront. The Buyout price after the end of the leasing period, if you like to keep the artwork, is $2025.00 for all 10. This price is based on buyout of all 10 giving you a volume discount of 20%. You can keep all, a few or none, but then the buyout discount will change depending of the volume.

(**) All initial cost for monthly leasing includes the first 3 months.

(*) Up Front means that you pay the whole leasing cost when ordering, giving you a discount (10%).

At the end of your lease

During the lease period (6 or 12 months), you are renting the art and for that reason, you are gaining your 100% tax relief. At the end of the period, therefore, the art is not your property, which means you should return it to Erik Brede Photography, however, in practice no one does this. Erik Brede Photography will offer you the art for the buyout price specified in the contract, which of course is still 100% tax deductible. If you choose to buy out the artwork, the CoA document, a signed label and the security tamper will be mailed to you – read more about CoA here.

The total cost of leasing + buyout is approx. 10% higher than the list price.

If you don’t like to keep the artwork after the end of the period you can return it to Erik Brede Photography. All shipping cost and taxes have to be paid by sender.

Reflection

I wasn’t sure about the BUTLERFINISH Look, I ordered this and one other piece and they look amazing on the brushed aluminium. Everyone that sees say they have never seen anything like them. I have received nothing but compliments and I personally love them.

Is There Anybody Out There I purchased this unique print before moving into my apartment. I liked it so much I changed all my living room furniture from oak wood and cream to all black and white – And I absolutely love it! I definitely plan on buying more of Erik Brede’s art. The title itself is mystical in it’s own unique way.

The Disappearance of the Elephant

Wow, what an amazing picture! I love the way the print on the brushed aluminium brings an extraordinary lively look. The Elephant is virtual 3D like when you move around the picture and the light changes and brings new elements to the picture. I am so pleased I invested in this! Great picture, fantastic combination, and a true and sad reminder of the disappearance of the Elephant …
