Durham is the county town of County Durham. The city sits on the River Wear to the south of Newcastle upon Tyne and the north of Darlington. Durham is well known for its Norman cathederal and 11th century castle.
As the economy starts to pick up, more and more companies in Durham and throughout the county of Durham are investing in capital equipment with the help of flexible leasing solutions from local asset finance companies.
One of the fastest growing and most popular ways for businesses to finance their investment in equipment and technology is through a lease agreement. Leasing allows all sorts of retailers, manufacturers, laboratories, opticians, health clubs, restaurants and construction companies in Durham to easily upgrade technology and avoid equipment obsolescence.
As well as the ability to frequently update specialist equipment without tying up available cash, a leasing scheme can offer considerable tax benefits. With an operating lease, lease ‘rental’ payments are an allowable business expense that can be set against profit – thereby potentially reducing your tax bill.
From IT equipment or medical technology to an entire office refurbishment, a wide range of specialist equipment can be leased locally as well as entire projects. Some of the most popular types of equipment leased in Durham are:
- IT equipment (e.g. computers, tablets, printers)
- IT Software
- Engineering equipment
- Office furniture
- Scientific and medical technology
- Catering equipment
- Industrial machinery
- Hairdressing and beauty equipment
