Use your existing Capital 

One major benefit of using your existing capital to pay for a new Asset, is your all paid up with no commitments to make future payments.  However using up cash resource could mean increased dependency on overdrafts which could come with additional interest and annual facility fees.   And what if that cash was needed for a rainy day?

Apply for a Bank Loan

Due to the number of Banks out there you can shop around for the loan terms that best suit you and compare rates from lender to lender to make the deal as sweet as possible.   However this can take up valuable time and you may not get approval.

Asset Finance

  • Finance anything from 1k upwards with flexible payment periods of up to 5 years.
  • Opens additional lines of credit: asset finance compliments cash resource that you already have as well as other bank facility’s such as overdrafts and loans.
  • Include maintenance, delivery and installation costs in the agreement.
  • Upgrade, make additions or settle the finance agreement at any point.
  • Make seasonal payments. Where appropriate payments can be matched to your cashflow cycle.
  • Most equipment asset finance is secured on the equipment being funded unlike overdrafts or loans which may need additional security such as charges over assets, book debts, property or guarantees.
  • Certainty of repayment: the vast majority of asset finance agreements are fixed in terms of interest rates. Why invest cash resources in a rapidly depreciating asset when you can pay for its use over its economic life? Using up cash resource could mean increased dependency on an overdraft along with additional interest and annual facility fees
