It’s Easy Being Green…with Xerox!

At Xerox, we have set a goal to REDUCE to ZERO the waste generated by Xerox products. We do it by designing with the environment in mind. An example of this is our Solid Ink products (ColorQube). We also do it by utilizing extended life components, and then by reusing components via remanufacturing. If components cannot be reused, our last alternative is to recycle the used components.

And if you need to ship Xerox toner bottles, waste toner containers or drum cartridges back to Xerox, you can download prepaid shipping labels here: http://www.xerox.com/perl-bin/product.pl?mode=recycling&XOGlang=en_US&referer=xrx (www.xerox.com/gwa).

Over the last 20 years, our recycling programs at Xerox have kept more than 145 million pounds of waste out of landfills. Thank you for helping us continue our legacy of recycling.

Uncle Sam wants you to know about tax savings available to businesses.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment / Small Business Job Act was renewed for 2010 with big advantages: it can dramatically increase depreciation, immediate expensing — or both — on any capital value of equipment acquired for your business this year.

We can help you solve not only your color and digital technology needs, but can also bring you flexible payment options that can meet your cash flow requirements.

These factors may be just one more incentive toward the value and timing of a Xerox solution for your company. We can help your business, whether expanding a large organization, or the growth you need for your small business.

There are two key provisions in the federal business tax code that are available to expense capital investments under this expanded federal package:

  1. Significantly increases Section 179 expensing;
  2. 50% bonus + normal depreciation.

We offer compelling payment plans and options that can give you access to these benefits and leading-edge solutions — to align your expense outlay with your business model.

In this day and age, it is critical that your business has the technology resources required to stay competitive. The accelerated depreciation tax incentives are only available for solutions implemented by the end of 2010: a short term window that in the long run can help us to help you make your business stronger.

EXAMPLE of Section 179 Expensing:
$10,000   Capital Expense
   -3,500   Tax Cash Savings 2010 (at 35% rate)
$  6,500   Net Lower Cost w/Tax Savings

Don’t have money available for capital purchases? We have Fixed Purchase Option financing available (Lease to Own) that qualifies for the Section 179 deduction. You have $0 down and then monthly payments until you own the machine PLUS you can take the full value of the Xerox equipment as a deduction in 2010.

NOTE: These are only guidelines and any calculations are for illustrative purposes only. You should consult your own tax and financial advisors to review and assess the factors that may apply to your business and tax situation.
