Why asset finance?
Quite simply, asset finance is an easy way to spread the cost of new business purchases without tying up capital and disrupting cash flow. It is an alternative funding option to an overdraft facility or loan and can be used by any business, whether you are a start-up, SME or a part of a larger corporation.
How does asset finance work?
A business chooses the selected asset they need for their business and the finance provider pays for this equipment outright. In turn the business makes regular payments over an agreed time period, normally between two to five years, to the asset finance provider and at the end of the agreement there is an option to purchase the asset for a small fee. To help with the cashflow fluctuations of seasonal businesses, some lenders are able to offer flexible repayment options – such as Novuna Business Finance’s ‘Smart Funding’ solution for SMEs.
Whilst borrowing isn’t the right method for every business, nor may be paying for an asset in one lump sum. Asset finance can protect working capital which business owners will appreciate is vital to keeping a successful business running.
