Holiday Hours: Closing 6pm New Year’s Eve

Connecting Point will remain open until 6pm today (December 31st). This includes both sales and service departments. If you’re a business owner, that means you still have time to take advantage of the IRSSection 179 deduction.

Businesses may deduct the full amount for equipment purchases under Section 179What is Section 179, anyway?

When your business buys certain types of equipment, it usually writes them off a bit at a time through depreciation. In other words, if your company spends $50,000 on a machine, it gets to write off (say) $10,000 a year for five years (these numbers are for illustrative purposes only).

Now, while it’s true that this is better than no write off at all, most business owners would prefer to write off the entire equipment purchase price for the year they buy it.

That’s the purpose behind Section 179: To stimulate the American economy (and your business) to move in a positive direction. For most small businesses, the entire cost can be written off on their 2013 tax return.

So don’t miss out – talk to your financial advisor right away. If it makes sense, pick up the computer systems and peripherals your business needs to remain strong and competitive in the coming year. And Connecting Point will remain open until 6 pm on New Year’s Eve to help make that possible. We can even offer up to 18 months interest-deferred financing for qualified applicants.

Deal of the Week | Dec. 27, 2013: Two Remote-Controlled Switch Sockets for $12.99

Remote controlled switched sockets for $12.99Getting up from a comfortable seat, moving to a location, and manually flicking a switch? Man, that is so 20th century.

We live in an age of remotes, of wireless magic, of click-here-and-it-gets-done-there wizardry. What if you could randomly pick a couple of lamps or appliances or tools to set up as remotely-activated devices? What if doing so was not only dead simple, but ridiculously affordable?

Think of the possibilities: Early morning, your alarm clock comes on. You slap it off, as usual – except now, because you went to Connecting Point this week, you can also slap on  the coffeemaker – without getting out of bed. By the time you stagger downstairs to the kitchen, steaming hot java awaits.

Paradise. Better still, paradise for less than 13 bucks.
