What is asset finance?
What is an asset finance broker?
This is a person or company whose role is to assist their clients in the purchase of assets from their selected supplier by finding the right lender to borrow from to suit their needs.
It is best to ensure this is a reputable lender for your requirements. Check their FCA permissions and/or membership to a professional body, such the NACFB (National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers).
How do asset finance companies work?
The finance company will pay the supplier for the equipment, plant, vehicle or machinery and the client will pay a regular sum (monthly or quarterly) to the provider. The item may eventually become the property of the business over time, depending on the sort of asset finance involved.
What business assets can you borrow money for?
However, these assets must meet the DIMS criteria. That is to say that the assets in question are:
This can include vehicles, plant, machinery, IT hardware and software, printers, LED lighting, etc. Even livestock can be purchased on asset finance!
As a rule of thumb, asset finance becomes better value if the asset is over £10,000, but lower value assets can also be financed on asset finance.
