This comparison table will help you determine which asset finance solutions are for you.

Finance lease

Allows you to share in the rewards of ownership.


Hire purchase

Purchase an asset without a large capital outlay.


Operating lease

Use an asset without the risk of future value losses.


Contract hire

For cars and vans, vehicles are provided at a fixed rental. 



It's also worth considering the following:

  • Would you rather tie up capital in fixed assets or have the flexibility of leasing? 
  • What would best suit your cash flow and working capital?    
  • What tax and VAT requirements would apply to your preferred finance facility?   

Finance can't be arranged on demand and you might be asked to provide additional security.
