Should I pay cash or lease?
You may be able to afford to buy the equipment outright, but before you make this decision you must consider the following:
Do my payments increase if Inflation or Interest Rates rise?
No. Your monthly payment is fixed at the start of the lease and so are unaffected by interest rate rises. This enables you to budget your cash flow more accurately. As inflation rises, because your payments are fixed the cost of the equipment reduces in real terms.
How do I make my payments?
All payments are mainly made by Direct Debit on the same date each month.
Should I go to my bank?
If you use all your cash, or any overdraft facilities, you leave yourself in a vulnerable position to react to any unexpected needs of short-term borrowing. By leasing you don’t need to find the whole invoice amount “up front”.

Is leasing tax efficient?
Yes. Payments can be offset against your tax liabilities. Your accountant will be able to give you more information on this.
