Refinance is a finance facility which provides a simple way of releasing equity in unencumbered assets or assets nearing the end of their original finance arrangements. The result is a speedy cash flow boost to a customer’s working capital.
The customer invoices the sale of the assets at current market value (or slightly less) to the new finance company who then incepts a new finance agreement and the customer receives the sale proceeds less any residual finance that may have still been outstanding to the original funder.
It can also be a useful way of restructuring existing finance agreements to result in a lower monthly repayment, whilst continuing to have the use of the assets.
The new finance agreement can be either hire purchase or finance lease, depending on the customer’s particular circumstances, over a fixed period of time, usually a maximum of 5 years

Operating lease

This is a rental agreement which can be used to finance a broad spread of business assets but is particularly effective for financing heavy commercial vehicles. The funder builds in a residual value to reduce the rentals, thus helping cash flow and making ‘off-balance sheet’ funding possible.

Key features and benefits:

Preserves cash flow – offers the obvious cash flow benefits of paying in installments.
Initial deposits – can be as low as one monthly rental down with the vat spread over the term of the agreement.
Competitively priced – the funder or manufacturer takes the risk in the residual value of the equipment and factors this into the rental, bringing down the periodic cost to you.
Fixed maintenance contracts – can also be built in to the monthly rental
Tax efficient – the rentals can normally be offset against taxable profits
Asset normally treated as ‘off-balance sheet’ (subject to your auditors’ approval).
Flexible – at the end of the term, you can return the asset or extend the period. Either way, you do not carry the problem of disposal of the equipment.
