Can you finance equipment from a value of £1,500?

Can you finance equipment from a value of £1500? The short answer is yes, however, there are several factors that can alter this, which are discussed below.

What is the minimum value at which you can lease equipment in the UK?

Throughout the UK different leasing companies all have different policies on whom they lend to. This also includes what kind of assets they provide finance for. This therefore impacts their minimum lease value.

Some have a minimum lease value of either £2,000 or £3,000, however ours can offer finance from a value of £1,500.

Why do companies not like financing equipment under a value of £3,000?

Without complicating the matter, leasing and finance companies have to lend money to stay in business. Their amount of deals would decrease if they leased under £3,000. This is because they would have to write a larger number of deals to reach the same amount of money as they would if the value was bigger.

This is why most leasing companies wish to focus on bigger value deals. Therefore cash flow is steadily maintained, essential for the running of any business.

However, there are always costs involved including for underwriting, managing the deal and processing. Often leasing companies will divide their cost base by the number of deals they write every year, which normally costs around £150-£250. This could counteract the leasing company’s money they make on a deal. They then end up losing money which is why smaller deals are usually less common.

So, why would a leasing company arrange a lease for £1,500 if they are going to lose money?

The importance of customers is what keeps leasing companies agreeing to such small deals. They offer a service to their end user customers, suppliers and partners. They can always make the profit up elsewhere in their business. It also keeps competition out of their accounts, and away from their customers.
