What New Tax Laws Mean for Imaging Equipment Deductions

Tax-Deductions-2018.jpg

With new tax laws having just gone into effect, the tax landscape for organizations considering capital equipment purchases has changed in a significant way. Now, a buyer can take an immediate 100% depreciation on the purchase of a piece of used equipment; even equipment that has been fully depreciated by the previous owner. This has caused a stir in several industries (most notably aircraft sales) where the Wall Street Journal predicts, "It could mean a shuffling of assets by companies purely for tax reasons and mergers and acquisitions that exploit new tax edges."1 

We don't expect to see assets shuffling wildly in the medical imaging field, given the logistics of relocating the big metal modalities, but we do expect to see some facilities that have been biding their time on upgrades jumping into the market this year to take advantage of their new option for depreciation and deduction. Take a look at the examples below to see the difference.

Which Systems Would You Put in Your Imaging Facility?

OEM leading modality.jpg

Having spent thirteen years of my career with a major medical imaging OEM, in diverse roles, I've had the opportunity to build a thorough and integrated vantage point on the separate strengths of many equipment manufacturers serving the imaging field. When my background comes up in conversations, buyers often ask me my opinion on various OEMs/providers and the overall value proposition of their equipment; essentially, "Whose systems would you buy?" This happens often enough that I want to take the next few paragraphs to put those opinions and observations down more permanently. 

Keep in mind, when I choose to speak positively about a given OEM in a particular area, I do not mean to imply anything negative about another OEM. My goal is to share with you which manufacturers are shining in each of the major imaging modalities, right now.
