Hire Purchase, your business will benefit by being able to use the equipment straight away, the payments can be spread over the life of the equipment. At the end of the term title of the equipment will be passed on for a nominal fee. (Option to purchase fee) Vat is paid at the outset, and 100% of the net cost (excluding vat) can be funded.
Finance Leasing is a tax efficient way for your business to acquire the equipment it needs without using your cash reserves. The asset is not owned at the end of the primary period, you can sell the equipment at the end of the term and the net sale proceeds are retained by you, or you can continue to use it subject to a minimal secondary rental each year. Vat is payable on the payments. Depending upon the asset type and term, you may be able to offset the rental payments against your taxable profit.
An Operating Lease lets your business benefit from fixed costs and predicted annual use. The equipment remains the property of the Lessor and will need to be returned at the end of the lease term.
Sale & HP/Sale and Lease back
This option enables you to convert a recent purchase (within 90 days of the original purchase from a bona fide supplier) to a finance agreement which releases cash back into your business. The finance company would purchase your asset at an agreed value, and finance it back to you over a fixed period. The lease back option can be written on either a Finance Lease or a Hire Purchase agreement.
This agreement facilitates a sale where the supplier is not an equipment dealer. For example, this could be a local farmer to farmer sale. The seller will need to provide evidence of clear title to the asset and invoice accordingly.
Contract Hire is a type of lease agreement with a maintenance schedule attached to it. It can provide a solution for businesses that want to concentrate on their core business activities, whilst avoiding the financial risk and administrative burden of owning and maintaining any vehicles or equipment that they use.
