OK, so you’re sold on the idea of using asset finance. Excellent. That’s the hard bit taken care of. Now it is time to decide what type of finance is best for you. At this point, financing can get very serious and very stressful: if you let it. Our job is to make sure that it doesn’t.

At Azule we will work hard to understand your business and your financial position and tailor our funding solutions so that they work for you. We will be very happy to advise you on the most appropriate deal.

However, we also know that this is your money and that you need to know what is going to happen next and over the coming months. So here is our Pocket Guide To Asset Finance.

You don’t own the asset but… you can continue to pay for its use after the end of the agreement

You pay VAT on each monthly instalment

You will, generally, have lower repayments
