Asset Finance Leasing cont

High street finance companies are what we would balance sheet lenders. They are more interested in the strength of the business in terms of how long it has been trading, how profitable it is , the size of the net worth and the affordability of the new project or capital investment. If your business ticks all the boxes than they will offer a hire purchase or finance lease facility. High street finance companies take less notice of the actual piece of equipment or machinery you are purchasing however tend to categorise different types of equipment offering differnt levels of security.

Asset lenders are less interested in the balance sheet but more in the actual value of the equipment. Asset lenders will obtain a valuation of the equipment or machinery to be financed or refinanced and Will lend a percentage of its perceived forced sale or trade value. Therefore it is quite possible that a business might buy a piece of kit costing £100k and an asset lender will put a forced sale value on it of £60k however might only lend £48k needing the customer to find a substantial deposit.

Therefore if you are struggling to obtain a traditional finance lease or hie purchase facility with a high street laender or balance sheet lender it is possible you might find yourself caught between a arock and a hard stone. Your company isnt strong enough on paper for the high street lenders but the value of the equipment isnt enouugh to make the project work because you dont have enough deposit. Unfortunately there is very little inbetween at the moment as their are fw finance compnaies left in the middle ground.
