You can use corporate leasing to acquire movable capital assets

Leasing means a long-term lease of capital assets. Many know the term leasing from the world of vehicles, but your company can use leasing in various ways to finance different capital asset acquirements. In addition to vehicles, you can lease IT equipment, production and working machines, office and shop furniture, different industrial devices, energy efficiency procurement for a property, and even business premises.  

Leasing makes it possible for you to rent products in the long term. Just as with hire purchase agreements, your company pays a monthly fee with leasing. The difference is that the device does not automatically change owners at the end of the agreement, although, in many cases, your company may want to redeem the machine, device or vehicle at the end of the lease period. 

Your company will buy a product acquired through hire purchase instalments, or investment financing, to own. The ownership is transferred once the last product instalment has been paid. 

How can your company benefit from leasing?

The idea of leasing is to distribute the expenses of the procurement for the duration of its usage and to use the leased object as collateral at the same time. Leasing provides your company with an effective and easy way of financing equipment and other acquisitions. You can access finance that is just the right size for you, quickly and effortlessly. Because the leased object is collateral for the financing, you do not usually need other collateral. Leasing does not tie down your company’s assets in the same way as owning. The expenses spread evenly for the duration of its use, making it easier to forecast and manage expenses. You can easily add the monthly charges of your selected additional services and insurance policies to the lease payment invoice.

Our limit solutions bring flexibility to financing your company’s regular purchases. If necessary, the leasing limit enables you to make withdrawals, while the paid lease instalments free some of the credit limit. Facilitates procurement and invoice approval for larger businesses with several functions are made easier by means of boundary conditions and processes agreed in advance.

In OP's online financing service, you can review your leasing agreements and invoices and download information for further use if you need them.
