An operating lease lets you benefit from an asset whilst we take the risk of it losing its value or becoming obsolete. You get full use of the asset for as long as you need it.

  • Rental and return conditions are fixed at the outset
  • We take the risk in the resale value of the asset for you
  • Improved cashflow and tax-efficient payments

How does an operating lease work?

If you need a new piece of equipment or plant to fulfil a particular order, an operating lease could give you the finance you need. Operating leases improve your cashflow immediately and streamline your finances by matching rental payments to your income.

You use the asset for as long as you need it. Then, at the end of the operating lease, we keep the asset or you can extend the agreement if you need to. An operating lease can have significant tax and financial advantages compared with alternatives such as hire purchase or a business loan.

Is an operating lease right for you?

An operating lease is ideal for any type of business that needs to use a piece of machinery, plant or equipment for a specific length of time.

Finance leasing is a flexible, tax-efficient way for your business to acquire the assets it needs without depleting cash reserves, and you may realise some value at the end of the term.

  • Financing for up to 100% of the purchase price (excluding VAT)
  • Offers the option to carry on renting the asset for a nominal sum OR to sell it and retain most of the cash proceeds when the term ends.
  • VAT is payable on the rentals, not the purchase of the asset helping to improve your cashflow
  • Payment structures range from 2 to 7 years
  • Rental payments are 100% tax deductible

How a finance lease works.

We retain ownership of the assets purchased. At the end of the lease term you can carry on renting the asset for a nominal annual sum or sell it and keep most of the cash proceeds. You can use finance leasing for a wide range of business assets, from information technology and communications hardware to manufacturing plant and machinery, and fixtures/fittings.

With a finance lease you enjoy fixed rate funding as well as a payment structure that can be matched to your cashflow to ease budgeting. The funding is on balance sheet.

Is finance leasing right for you?

A finance lease can be suitable for businesses of all sizes, and all types of assets. Finance leasing allows you to acquire the essential goods that you need to run your business efficiently without reducing your cash reserves. You benefit because the asset is generating income as you pay for it.

Hire purchase can give you the best of both worlds. You get the asset straight away but you can spread the payments over the life of the asset, and you can keep it at the end of the term for a nominal fee.

  • With hire purchase we can finance up to 100% of the purchase price.
  • Payment structure is agreed at the outset for easy budgeting.
  • With hire purchase you can buy the asset for a nominal fee at the end of the term.
  • Repayments can be matched to your cashflow and the depreciation of the asset.
  • You can claim immediate capital allowances on the equipment.
  • The interest element of the payments is tax deductible.
  • VAT is immediately recoverable on the whole purchase price.

How does hire purchase work?

Hire purchase is a way to buy the assets you need without depleting your cash reserves. It is flexible and tax efficient and can be used to buy anything from IT to plant and machinery. Hire purchase also gives you ownership title, making it suitable if you want to purchase something you want to keep or eventually sell.

Hire purchase is a tax-efficient way to buy assets as the interest on the payments is tax deductible and capital allowances on the equipment can be claimed immediately.

Is hire purchase right for you?

Hire purchase is suitable for businesses of all sizes. Funding is on balance sheet.

Sale and leaseback is a flexible, tax-efficient way for your business to unlock the capital already invested in equipment, machinery, commercial vehicles and property. You can also use the fresh injection of working capital to fund expansion plans and stimulate further growth and development. Cash advances range from £20,000 to £7m with repayment terms of 3 months up to 7 years.

  • Financing for up to 100% of the value (excluding VAT)
  • Offers the option for you to carry on renting the asset for a nominal sum OR to sell it and retain most of the cash proceeds when the term ends.
  • VAT payable on the rentals, not the asset.
  • There is normally no need for additional security as the finance is usually secured on the asset.

How does sale and leaseback work?

We purchase the assets from you and settle your invoice to us for the full value. We retain ownership of the assets, but you can sell them on our behalf at the end of the term and keep most of the proceeds.

With sale and leaseback you can have fixed rate funding as well as a payment structure that can be matched to your cash flow patterns to ease budgeting. The funding is on balance sheet.

Is sale and leaseback right for you?

Sale and leaseback can be suitable for businesses of all sizes, and all types of assets. Releasing cash locked in your depreciating assets helps the stability of your business. For example, you can use the funds to ensure swift recovery from bad debt or financing balloon payments on existing loans. The capital released can be used to repay bank overdrafts or reduce monthly payments on existing hire purchase or lease agreements.
