Leasing

We offer many flexible leasing methods to finance your new printing and document workflow solution. It is a prudent way of spreading the cost over a period of time, which allows you to preserve your working capital for the operation and growth of your business.

The benefits of leasing are:

  • Budgeting
    Payments made throughout a lease arrangement are not affected by changes in interest rates. You can accurately plan for lease payments in advance.
  • Future credit line
    When leasing equipment your existing credit lines, such as arrangements with the bank, remain intact.
  • Upgrade options
    The original installation can be altered, either during or at the end of the lease, to accommodate unforeseen changes.
  • Tax efficient
    If you pay corporation tax, leasing payments may be deducted from taxable profits, which reduces the net cost of leasing the equipment.
  • 100% financing
    A deposit need not be a prerequisite to the finance arrangement.
  • Regular payments
    Leasing helps spread the cost of the equipment over a pre-agreed period by making quaterley or monthly payments instead of a large capital outlay.
