Advantages of sale and leaseback

At WestWon, we have written hundreds of sale and leaseback leasing agreements on numerous asset types. If you are looking to carry out a sale and leaseback agreement, please contact us! However, to learn more about the benefits, please read below. Here we take a look at the advantages of sale and leaseback on equipment:

A quick and simple way to raise finance

The process is simple and the timescale can be anything from 48 hours to one week before your receive the cash.

Sensible interest rates

With a sale and leaseback of equipment, we take our security in the asset. This is less risk than offering an unsecured loan, hence the interest rates are normally cheaper.

Does not use up existing lines of credit

No need for you to speak to your Bank. A sale and leaseback does not affect any invoice discounting / factoring arrangements you already have in place.

It’s a lease, not a bank funding line

Some companies have banking covenants where they cannot take out other third-party loans. We will lease the equipment back to you, hence it does not fall foul to any restrictions like this that you might have.

You still have full use of the asset

You will still have full use of the equipment and will be matching the benefit you derive to the repayment you make each month. On smaller deals (under £500k) we will not look to take a debenture or a second charge.

What can we use the money for and do you (WestWon) need to know why?

Working capital, management buyouts, deposits, new buildings… the list goes on. If it’s a management buyout or acquisition, you can read more in our article on “Raising funds for a management buyout or acquisition by a sale and leaseback (coming soon).”

We really do need to know the reason why you are looking to undertake a sale and lease back. We often do see companies looking to do a sale and leaseback to raise money as a last resort. Leasing companies do not like to lend in these situations.

How does the money come to you?

The leasing company / finance company will pay you directly by bank transfer.

What assets can you do a sale and leaseback on?

  • Plant and machinery
  • Company cars, lorries, vehicles are a popular asset choice
  • General equipment
  • Warehouse racking, forklift trucks

The list goes on…
