What is Asset Finance?

Having access to the right equipment and machinery, in order to deliver quality products and services to their customers, is vital to many businesses; however, purchasing them outright can be difficult when you have to rely on your existing cash flow.

Asset finance solutions are designed specifically to help businesses overcome the challenges of raising the necessary capital to purchase new assets. This provides a more targeted option than securing an overdraft or bank loan, and allows companies to spread their payments over a longer timeframe to ease the cash flow impact.

It is also possible to release cash which is tied up in existing assets for a cash flow boost, depending on your requirements.

Asset finance solutions

When it comes to purchasing new assets, businesses typically have two alternatives to paying for them outright: hire purchase and finance leases.

The difference between the two is that, through hire purchase, you will own the asset at the end of the agreement; whereas finance leases give businesses the option of essentially borrowing the asset for a set period.

Through asset refinance, asset finance companies can also unlock funding against the value of existing assets to provide a cash flow boost.
