Typically, asset finance is secured on assets or equipment, and provides you with the added flexibility of being able to replace or upgrade at the end of your agreement. What’s more your equipment could start paying for itself from day one.
If you are looking to generate working capital your existing equipment could be key. Refinance can be considered on a range of plant and machinery assets, from vehicles, trailers, and agricultural or engineering equipment to yellow plant, to name just a few.
With finance terms available from 12 months to 5 years (depending on equipment), it can help you spread the cost of the useful life of the equipment, without interrupting its day to day use.
Recurring expenses such as VAT or Corporation Tax can often happen at the most inopportune time for many smaller businesses. Spreading the cost of these expenses with a short-term loan can help you protect your cash flow and allow you to invest in other areas to help your business grow.
Longer term loans can also help you invest in marketing and advertising, rennovations or key training for your staff.
