Get your business moving.
Use asset finance to purchase a track.
For SMEs working within the freight and haulage sectors, expanding your fleet of HGVs, trucks and other vehicles is paramount for continued customer growth.
As much as buying a new truck for your business may be seen an essential purchase, there's no getting away from the fact that this sort of expense can be very costly. An outlay of this size can put a big strain on your immediately available capital which is why asset finance has proved to be such a popular option for growing businesses within the transport sector.

What is asset finance?
Asset finance is a fantastic lending option for those looking to purchase a new truck without having to pay the full costs up front. They come in various forms, however as a general rule of thumb they share the same principle of lending you capital which will be repaid over the economic life of the vehicle.
It's often difficult getting accepted for truck finance from a traditional bank or building society whilst the application process can also be long winded and time consuming. Asset finance is structured in such a way that any money lent to you is secured against the asset, giving your lender added security by allowing them to retain ownership of the truck until the balance has been repaid.
Since asset finance is typically issued on an initial lease basis, you can offset your monthly repayments against your tax bill as you would with any other business equipment that you hire.
Banks tend to only issue these types of loans over the short or long term whereas the vast majority of HGV finance companies offer mid-term lending of between one and five years. In our experience, we've found this to be far more preferential for SMEs, particularly if they don't wish to continue repaying the debt long after the truck has ceased being used.

What Types Of Asset Finance Can Be Used To Buy A Truck?
There are a number of asset finance options available to help give SMEs maximum flexibility when it comes to growing their fleet and you can access all of these finance types through the Capitalise comparison platform.
Avoid the burden of a sizeable, up front VAT payment on your new truck by taking out a finance lease. You'll typically pay a fixed monthly fee and, at the end of the agreement, can either choose to continue renting the vehicle or instruct your lender to sell it in order to reclaim a rebate on some of your rental costs.
Make fixed or variable monthly repayments to your lender who will continue to own the truck until the outstanding balance has been repaid. As soon as your final instalment has been made, full ownership of the vehicle will be transferred to you, adding another sizeable asset to your business and its balance sheet.
Keep the initial outlay of your new truck purchase to a minimum by arranging a contract hire agreement with one of our lenders. You can choose to either spread the entire value of the truck over your contract, or reduce your monthly outgoings with a pre-agreed balloon payment made at the end of the term.
