It's often hard for the business owner to justify spending the upfront capital needed to get the right office equipment. But don't forget that you also have the choice of leasing office equipment. That's why leasing computer equipment is one of the best ways to keep money in the business and stay current in the always changing world of technology.

· Telephones: This should be the first purchase your office will need, for both the present and the future. This means you will need to do some research and if using a telephone plays a major role in your everyday work then you will need to find one that can grow with you as your business grows.
· Computers: When buying your computers try shopping around ask questions. Which one will work for my type of business? Do they last a long time? You want to make sure you buy smartly so that you dont have to constantly be buying computers

But take in mind if one of the components goes bad then the rest are bad also because you wont be able to use the other components cause its being repaired
· Digital camera: Many businesses today are finding that a digital camera can be beneficial for product marketing, promotion, and other business needs. For this reason, purchasing a simple point-and-shoot model is a good idea.
