Frequently asked questions
Should I pay cash or lease?
Do my lease payments increase if inflation or intrest rates rise?
NO. Your monthly payments are fixed at the start of the lease and so are unaffected by intrest rate rises. This enables you to budget your cash flow more accurately.
Are there any tax benifits assosiated with leasing?
Yes. A bussiness wishing to aquire capital equipment has to seek the most tax efficient way when doing this. All lease payments are treated as an allowable business expense and therefore attracts tax relief for the full duration of the lease agreement. Your accountant will be able to cofirm this.
How do I make my monthly payments?
All payments are made by direct debit to the finance company on the same date each month.
Should I go to the bank for money?
Using your bank for all of your business funding is not always good practice. If you use all of your overdraft facility you leave yourself in a vunerable position to react to any unexpected needs of short term borrowing.
Your bank can change the intrest rate mid way through your loan or reduce your overdraft facility, which can dramaticlly affect the cash flow of your business. Sometimes banks will limit the amount they will lend you without further security, for example taking charge of you home.
