As we enter a new financial year, businesses across the UK are taking stock of the previous 12 months and attempting to predict what the coming year might bring.
While Brexit negotiations and turbulent world events are undoubtedly contributing to a sense of economic uncertainty, the outlook is far from gloomy.
A report by PwC forecasts modest UK growth of 1.5% in 2018 and 1.6% in 2019. And in the long-term, it’s clear there are massive opportunities for growth in various sectors such as service industries, construction, and AI and robotics.
Here at System Rentals we’ve been helping businesses to grow since 1987, offering affordable finance options that enable companies to lease a whole range of equipment from the latest hi tech products to children’s play equipment. We like to think that our own success story is due to our consistently fair and transparent approach – an approach that will never change whatever the prevailing economic climate.
Leasing – why it makes sense for 2018
Updating company equipment to keep in line with the latest innovations has never been more important in today’s fast-moving technological landscape. Whether it’s a powerful computer server, a labour-saving catering device or cost saving renewable energy solutions, new equipment can help move your company forward and give the edge on competitors.
But in uncertain times, businesses large and small are understandably nervous about sinking capital into expensive upgrades. Leasing offers the perfect solution, preserving cash flow and allowing you to spread the cost of payments with an affordable monthly plan. It can also be more tax efficient, so your company stands to benefit on a number of levels.
Our friendly, expert team can negotiate the most competitive rates and will handle all paperwork, freeing up your time to concentrate on your own areas of business expertise.
SMEs need easy access to finance to take advantage of new opportunities to help stimulate growth – and that’s just what System Rentals is ready to provide. We can organise finance for equipment across multiple industries and sectors and can literally finance any equipment. So whatever area you work in – from technology, education or business to catering, retail and manufacturing – get in touch to see how we can help.
Invest in your future
While growth is the ultimate goal for any business, over-exuberance is definitely not the buzzword for 2018. It’s wise to temper optimism with a healthy dose of realism, factoring in likely interest rate rises from the Bank of England over the coming months.
All the more important, then, to draw up a financial plan that includes plenty of elements you can predict, such as an affordable leasing agreement that will spread fixed payments over a specified term, usually between two and five years.
