From Crawley to Worthing, businesses across West Sussex are increasingly recognising the benefits of local equipment leasing to finance capital investments in equipment and machinery. Leasing is after all a proven way of funding new and upgraded equipment without relying on bank loans, enabling organisations in West Sussex to drive growth and increase productivity at a faster pace.
The county of West Sussex is home to over 800,000 residents and around 31,000 businesses. The county has strong links to London to the north, and is adjacent to Brighton and Portsmouth to the East and West respectively. It also has good road links to surrounding areas of Kent, Surrey and Hampshire.
In the north east of the county, Gatwick Airport is a core economic asset, employing over 2,500 people, while Crawley is home to a number of manufacturing, engineering, logistics and services firms, including Nestle, Tui Travel, Thales Defence Electronics and Virgin Holidays. Surrounding Crawley are a number of smaller towns including Horsham, Haywards Heath, East Grinstead and Burgess Hill. Due to their transport links, these towns have a strong commuting element to their economies.
Local leasing deals in West Sussex not only allow businesses in a variety of sectors to improve performance by acquiring the latest technology without tying up capital or existing lines of credit, but they also protect against future obsolescence – a major issue for IT and computing equipment. Plus, leasing payments offer considerable tax benefits, and can even be tailored to match the seasonal cash flow of a business.
A wide range of equipment, from IT hardware and software to packaging machines and medical technology, can be leased from your local leasing company. Other leasing options include general office equipment such as furniture and photocopiers. In fact, almost any type of tangible equipment can be considered for leasing as well as office fit outs and project costs for updating most types of commercial premises.
