Insider’s Tip of the Week: Bob Chezem

tip_december_lights.gifEach week, we feature tips from industry insiders. Have a tip to share with our readers? Let us know.

This week’s tip comes to us from Bob Chezem, President of December Lights:

“If purchasing a new décor package is beyond your means, you might want to consider leasing your decorations instead.
A December Lights, we offer one-year or three-year turnkey leasing programs, which include the installation, takedown and storage of your mall’s decorations. The three-year program also comes with a purchasing option.
Leasing programs are generally set up between January and August to allow us to build the decorations and plan our installation schedule. However, there are always late programs requested and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
Installations begin November 1st and are completed no later than American Thanksgiving Day, or the last week of that month. Removal of the decorations begins January 1st and is completed no later than January 15th.
The best part about leasing your décor is that your expenses could qualify for a tax write-off, just as your company car leasing expenses would. Tax rules may differ from state to state, so be sure to check with your accounting department.”
