Standard Asset Finance

Asset Finance can help you purchase essential equipment to drive your business forward without tying up your cash.

  • Helps you buy new and used assets and spread the cost over their working life. The equipment or asset being purchased acts as security for the facility. When the term ends, you can pay a small ‘transfer of title’ fee and own the asset.

  • Allows you to use the assets and spread the cost over an agreed term. Bank of Scotland can fund up to 100% of the purchase price and VAT is paid on the rental payments, rather than the overall purchase price. At the end of the lease, you have the option to extend the lease or request to sell the asset at fair market value and receive the majority of the sale proceeds.

  • Helping businesses invest through the Clean Growth Financing Initiative in assets that will help lower the environmental impact through discounted lending for green purposes, helping to reduce carbon and greenhouse emissions and move to a more renewable economy.

  • Providing an end-to-end solution for acquiring, importing and funding equipment from abroad.

  • Allows you to initiate new Hire Purchase agreements against assets recently purchased* and paid for in full, giving you greater flexibility when making investment decisions.

    *Assets purchased within six months in England and Wales and three months in Scotland

Specialist Asset Finance for £25m+ turnover customers

Bespoke solutions for larger businesses, requiring asset funding solutions of £250,000 and above. Our own in-house asset management team allows us to take residual value positions on a wide variety of asset classes. 

Operating Lease

Ideal if you’re looking for funding of assets for project or contract work over a defined period of time without the exposure risk of future asset value volatility.

Built in residual (forecast future) value reduces the capital and associated interest charged over the agreed period on the principal amount financed, meaning improved cash flow for your business. At the end of the lease term, you have the option to return the asset to us or to sell the asset on our behalf. 

Structured Loans

For businesses which need more flexibility. Finance assets to be used by an outsourced partner, located overseas, or replaced during the agreement.

The financing solution is matched to the term of the facility, the payment profile and the benefits generated by the underlying asset. The future payments from operational contracts with your customers is sold, or borrowed against, to provide you with a cash sum to fund capital expenditure now.
