Respectfully, maybe you need to talk to your CPA about this.privatebydesign said:Businesses want monthly bills rather than a one off fee. It is 100% deductible and helps cash flow, it is a massive accounting benefit.ashmadux said:Talk about naive.mclaren777 said:You're the first person I've seen who actually agrees with me on this.privatebydesign said:I don't. I want Adobe to go 100% subscription and revert to their early business model of working for professional image makers and creatives. I am fed up of the noisy tail wagging the dog, they should free themselves of the noisy minority (of revenue streams) and focus on actual professionals, if that prices them out of the amateur market so be it, there are plenty of alternatives for those that don't see the value in the products and options Adobe give.
Revert to earlier biz model, support pros...
RIIIIIIIIGHT. That's some good stuff you guys are drinkin'.
People so easily fool themselves...all that sweet revenue thats coming in is not being invested in products...its just to fatten the shareholders. Thier job is to make money for shareholders, not get you the best possible products for your money. And fat chance with your dreams of supporting professionals...like when they tied raw and lens profile updates to app updates...what a great help! Camera raw is still using 2012 process versions..even though its going on 2018. Please tell us how much better adobe raw versions have gotten since they went subscription only?
Continue to cut your nose to spite your faces. What kind of lunatics would want another monthly bill...wtf.
If I buy a $700 lens/software/capital expense it takes me three years for my business to offset that cost, effectively I loan my business money. If I lease that $700 lens/software/capital expense then my monthly payment is 100% deductible that year, I don't have to find the $700 and I don't have to effectively loan myself anything.
From a business standpoint monthly 'lease' payments are very important.
I am able and have been able with my S-Corp, to write off those expenses you mentioned in FULL in the same year purchased. <P>
I've bought the canon 11-24 lens, a pretty pricey one at about $2300 for refurb. I wrote that entire amount in that same year of purchase. No problems.
I wish Adobe could manage to support dual abilities (CC and full license purchase)....seems they could get all the potential revenue streams that way....?<P>
But no, you should not just want leased software to write it off, you can fully write it and most other business expenditures off in full.....consult how you have incorporated yourself with your CPA, but I assure you it can be done quite legally.
