Assets need not be a liability
Asset finance is a type of funding that gives businesses access to assets such as vehicles, equipment or technology, that they need to prosper and grow. It typically involves paying a regular fee to use the asset over an agreed period. The main advantage is that the business avoids paying the full cost of buying the equipment upfront preserving working capital.
Asset finance can also be used to release the ‘cash value’ tied up in the value of assets that the business already owns. This involves selling assets you already own back to a lender. This lender will then give you cash for the assets and charge you a monthly fee to lease them back. This lease gives you the right to continue using the assets as you did previously. While the cash released is then available to be used elsewhere within the company. This type of product is often called asset refinancing or sale & leaseback finance.
Finally, leasing is a tax and cash efficient way of financing all types of equipment for your business. It also keeps the asset ‘off balance sheet’ and offers you a range of benefits:
Some of the benefits of asset finance include:
- You get immediate use of the asset without paying for it all up-front
- Working capital is freed up along with bank loan & overdraft facilities for future business growth
- It is also possible to structure lease contracts to match the length of time you intend to use the asset
- Sale & leaseback allows you to release the ‘hidden’ capital contained in assets you already own
- We can usually provide a solution irrespective of credit history or previous credit problems
- It provides very tax efficient structures for your business
