Lease Purchase is suitable for all types of assets and is of particular benefit if the equipment being purchase has a life expectancy greater than the term of the asset. You select the supplier and the equipment you want. We agree with you a repayment plan for the equipment – usually between 1 and 5 years (and for certain long life assets, up to 7 years, upon request). The supplier delivers the equipment to you and we pay the supplier. You have direct and immediate ownership of the equipment including all the VAT applicable to the cost price. At the end of the repayment period, upon receipt of an option to purchase fee, the equipment is yours. Lease Purchase helps by spreading the cost of expensive items over an extended time period. All interest costs are off set against tax as they are paid and you claim Tax Write Down allowances.
