Software Finance

page-software-financeSoftware finance has an image problem: more traditional asset finance companies don’t like to fund it because of the lack of residual value once it has been purchased.

Here at Johnson Reed, we look at it a bit dfferently. We are known for sourcing finance for almost every kind of asset imaginable, hence why our deals are often called “Quirky Kit Finance”. Whether it’s software licenses, the IT hardware to run them, the cost of installation, training, or ongoing maintenance, we will help find you a finance deal that suits your business.

We have helped finance off-the-shelf boxed software, such as Sage and Goldmine CRM, but software can be used for a variety of reasons, including bespoke commercial software.

We have helped companies get software finance for many different applications, including:

  • CAD
  • CRM
  • Accounts
  • Workflow
  • Tracking
  • Stock control
  • Legal
  • Print management

Give us a call and see if we can help you get the software your business needs, without having to fork out your hard-earned cash upfront, and instead use the tax-deductable operational expenditure. We think you’ll find our leasing finance deals much easier to manage!

  • Help your cash flow — Have the equipment you need now without affecting your companies cash reserves
  • 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
  • Keep your credit lines intact — Leasing does not affect any of your existing credit lines

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.
