Hire Purchase

Hire purchase is a finance agreement that is secured on the asset being funded. Payments can be tailored to suit your customers’ requirements and they have the opportunity to own the asset at the end of the finance period.

Finance Lease

A finance lease allows your customer to use the asset during the lease period, without owning it. The monthly rentals are normally 100% allowable against tax. At the end of the lease, they can either continue with nominal annual rentals or sell the asset as our agent and benefit from a proportion of the sale proceeds.

We can finance the following assets:

  • Prestige Cars
  • Classic cars and left hand drive cars
  • Light commercial vehicles
  • Heavy commercial vehicles
  • Bus and Coach
  • Trailers
  • Municipal vehicles
  • Construction equipment
  • Agricultural equipment
  • Waste recycling equipment
  • CNC and engineering machinery
  • Injection Moulding machines
  • Media equipment

 

Criteria

  • Deposits and finance terms are dependent on the age and type of asset, and are subject to the borrower’s status.
  • Repayment terms are typically from one to five years.
  • Non-regulated loans only.
  • Deal sizes usually range from £10,000 to £750,000, although we will consider larger transactions for strong covenants.
  • We offer a competitive broker commission structure and quick, efficient service from proposal stage through to drawdown.
