  • Afford the best quality — Get the very latest equipment, don't cut corners, tomorrows technology today
  • Pay as you use — You can pay for the equipment as its used and spread the cost through its working life, i.e. over three to five years
  • Tax allowable — Rentals are fully tax deductible, so why not take advantage of this?
  • Upgrade equipment — Get the benefit of new equipment by simply upgrading the equipment or extending its current usage
  • Plan your budgets — FD's love to know repayments are fixed
  • Simple direct debit — One rental can include all equipment and ancillary costs i.e. consultancy, installation, training and maintenance

What are the tax benefits of using leasing?

One of the great things about using leasing for your catering equipment is the tax-efficient way in which you can borrow the equipment. Simply offset the cost of leasing against your tax bill, and at the end of the fixed term you own 100% of the equipment! Due to the nature of leasing, your fixed repayments will mean you can spend your precious cash on other areas of your business.
