Asset Finance what and why

Bringing Asset Finance within the Reach of Every UK Business

For a business, of every kind and size, healthy growth rate is one of the most important health metrics. Many experts argue that a business is only as good as the rate at which it evolves – making the rate of growth a vital sign to judge the performance of a business by. But this growth doesn’t come easy. From the pure spirit of enterprise to the constant struggle to keep up with the times, a number of factors need to be looked after to keep a business growing. Continual investment and reinvestment are the foremost among these. Most businesses, however, do not have the luxury of liquidity that they can direct towards growth. Asset Finance aims to solve this very problem of cash shortfall.

Every sort of investment, from a business point of view, comes at an immediate cost, the returns on which are usually witnessed in the future. This cost can vary widely depending on the nature of the business itself and the type of investment. Investments in machinery or equipment can yield immediate results, while investments in stock shares or commercial properties may take years to manifest. Regardless of this, if you think that it is very important for you to invest in a commercial asset, our Asset Finance solutions are here to help.

What is Asset Finance?

Asset Finance is an external financing tool that helps businesses – especially small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) – invest in the latest, more profitable assets.

As you may well know, a prominent reason for a business to decline is the lack of efforts in keeping up with the times, the competition and the economy. Therefore, most businesses, if not all, feel the need to implement newer strategies to sustain and expand their operations. None of these strategies is, however, without its costs. Asset Finance helps businesses avoid having to bear these costs upfront, thus immensely easing up the purchase or incorporation of assets into their business operations. Such finance packages are particularly useful in situations when businesses cannot afford to dedicate a significant share of their cashflow to purchase expensive assets.


Let’s consider the example of a medium sized plastic recycling business. The business has been trading for over five years. The growth rate, while not meteoric, has been steady and consistent. A new environmental law, however, has now forced the business to significantly alter their recycling processes. Failure to abide by this law may well see the business processes being deemed illegal. So, it’s imperative for the business to change their processes in order to stay compliant. This, however, will mean that a hefty investment will need to be made into buying newer equipment, technology and even staff. The business cannot afford to pay for all these costs upfront.

To overcome this problem, the business owner decides to turn to Asset Finance. A suitable Lender, who also brings expertise in the same industry on board, agrees to lend credit to the business for the purchase of new technology. As an add-on, the Lender also decides to fund the lease of heavy-duty, expensive equipment. With everything in place, the business resumes operations and soon breaks even with all the investments at no significant interest cost.

Why Asset Finance?

Asset Finance, it wouldn’t be wrong to say, is one of the most important factors that have recently fuelled the growth of SMEs in the UK. As per the statistics released by the Finance & Leasing Association in 2016, Asset Finance has contributed to more than 30% of all commercial investments in the UK. So, it’s abundantly clear that thousands of businesses regularly depend of Asset Finance to fund their asset investments.

But why should your business choose Asset Finance?

The first, and the foremost, reason is the importance of assets. Investing in assets is more often than not expensive. If your business doesn’t have the luxury of cashflow liquidity, you will always find it difficult to invest in assets that you know are important. This has a sort of runaway effect on the entire business. Your competitors may well invest in the latest technology or equipment, thus leaving your business behind in the competition. Asset Finance helps you avoid delaying such investments, thereby ensuring that your efforts to stay ahead of the competition are fruitful.

In addition, Asset Finance allows businesses to choose the most profitable way of using assets . These ways, from outright purchasing of an asset to leasing it for a few weeks, can further be tweaked in agreement with the lender to produce the most effective results. Asset Finance solutions that we broker are robust, flexible and built around your requirements.

The reasons to choose Asset Finance are summed up below.

  • Improving business relevance
  • Preserving cashflow
  • Reducing the risks of ownership
  • Bypassing asset depreciation
  • Shortening sales cycles
  • Convenient incorporation of assets
  • Affordable, month-to-month repayments
  • Available despite bad credit
  • Tax benefits
