Public Sector Finance

pixabay_medic-563423With public sector austerity still in effect, and with signs of it continuing for years to come, it’s been even more important to move the requirement for new equipment out of stringent capital expenditure and into more flexible revenue budgets.

We work with all kinds of public sector bodies, from nurseries to universities, leisure centres to government agencies. Each of them can see new and exciting potential in developing their growth with equipment leasing, which is much more managable and tax efficient than traditonal forms of bank lending.

Here are just some of the public sector groups we are able to work with:

  • Education
  • Health care
  • Central and local government
  • Housing associations
  • Prisons
  • And many more

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.
