Benefits of using an asset finance broker

Any business wishing to purchase plant and machinery will know that the banks at the moment are not the most accommodating when it comes to asset finance. During the credit crunch any independence the bank owned leasing companies had will have been pulled back in under the umbrella of the main bank. What this means is that  now there very little difference in applying for a commercial bank loan or a hire purchase or leasing facility. Indeed you will find that your application for either will probably go to the same underwriter for approval. Never has it been truer that the banks will take into consideration you overall exposure when approving any type of borrow including any outstanding finance lease facilities.

Although credit is hard to come by never has the benefits of an asset finance broker been more important. There are still one or two independent leasing companies in the market that can compete with the big banks. So long as there is not a massive difference in the cost of borrowing why use potential valuable credit lines for purchasing assets and equipment. In deed certain banks will not provide finance lease or hire purchase facilities under £100k preferring to provide loan facilities. Whilst you may think this is the easy option commercial loans do not have the same tax advantages of leasing. For the sake of taking a little effort now it will possibly give you massive benefits in the future.
