We have a wide range of flexible finance products available within this market sector:

Contract Hire:
Operating Lease:
Hire purchase:
Finance lease:
Sale and Lease Back:
Stocking Finance:

Best suited for businesses where the equipment needs to be managed and maintained within one lease contract. The asset cost along with a repair and maintenance contract can be combined into a single payment due at regular intervals. The future value of the equipment will be recognised, thus reducing payments.

Ideal for business customers looking to acquire equipment on a relatively short-term basis.

Ideal for business customers wanting to own the asset at the end of the finance period. VAT is payable in full up-front.

Best suited for business customers not wanting to own the asset but needing to have the ‘use’ of it for a fixed period of time. VAT is payable on each rental payment.    

Available for businesses wanting to inject cash back into their business from recently bought assets.

Allowing you to finance your new stock, demonstration equipment and any used equipment you take back as part of a trade-in.
