IT Finance & Leasing

wikimedia_Dell_PowerEdge_ServersWhen it comes to running an IT business, hardware is the most vital – and often most costly – part of the enterprise.

Investing in new and replacement equipment can be a challenge for IT companies, so let us help take the growth pains out of your business with our dedicated IT leasing package. Don’t just get what your business can afford, get what your business needs!

With over 15 years of IT finance and more and more deals in our ever-growing portfolio, we are uniquely placed in the UK’s IT sector to provide expert advice and comprehensive finance support for any size of business.

Our expertise doesn’t just stop at hardware financing, we also specialise in software finance too.

By using leasing to get your new hardware, you are spreading the cost over a fixed term with a totally transparent and upfront payment schedule. There are no hidden costs involved, and once the finance term is complete the equipment is yours – simple as that.

One of the great advantages of taking on leasing is the ability to modify and upgrade your equipment as time goes on. In the IT industry, as you well know, hardware and software get upgraded all the time, so often having a 2 or 3 year contract doesn’t seem so attractive when it’s the same piece of kit you’re paying for. That’s why we offer the ability to upgrade your IT equipment, even if you’re in the middle of a contract, we simply modify the contract to take that into account, and you get the new kit!

We have worked to source IT equipment leasing to large multi-nationals, small-medium businesses (SMEs), and one-man bands. From just £1,000 upwards, you can lease 100% of your IT requirements in a way that is incredibly tax efficient. Don’t forget you can also include key elements of any acquisition and incorporate any intangibles you may require, such as maintenance, training, installation, and consultancy.

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.
