Finance Guide: Finding the right finance agreement for you

Introduction

We want to help you to find a suitable asset finance product that meets your needs. This sheet explains factors that you should consider.

Our role

We are authorised and regulated by the FCA as a credit broker FRN 629574, Anglo Scottish Asset Finance Ltd

We are a Credit Broker and not a Lender. We can introduce you to a limited number of lenders and their finance products. We are not an independent financial advisor; we will provide details of products available, but no advice or recommendation will be made. You must decide whether the finance product is right for you.

Do I need asset finance?

The main options for financing newly acquired assets are:

Purchase outright for cash

Bank facility

Raise new capital

Rent for a short period (typically less than one year)

Take out a finance agreement. A lender will purchase the equipment from the supplier you have selected, at the price you have negotiated. You will then hire or lease the equipment from the lender.

In deciding which option to select, relevant factors may include:

Whether you have the cash to buy outright

How long you need the asset for

Costs of the different options

For more help in deciding whether to select finance, see the British Business Bank’s Business Finance Guide (http://british-business-bank.co.uk/advice/)

What types of finance are there?

Most finance arrangements involve paying a deposit and then monthly payments. The key difference between products is what happens at the end of the agreement and who gets title to the equipment.

Hire Purchase:
At the end of the agreement there is an option to purchase the asset. If the option is not taken up, the equipment needs to be returned to the lender.

Conditional Sale:
At the end of the agreement you automatically take ownership of the equipment.

Lease:
At the end of the agreement, there is no option to purchase. The agreement can usually be extended, you may be offered the option to sell the asset on behalf of the lender, or the equipment can be returned to the lender. You do not get title.

PCP

At the end of the agreement there are 3 options. Pay the Final lump sum payment, Refinance the lump sum amount or hand the vehicle back to the finance house. You need to note there may be a charge for this if the vehicle has done more than the agreed mileage or any damage is present on the vehicle other than general wear and tear.

There are some other options also available but these will be discussed with you to see if they are more suitable.

In deciding which option to select, relevant factors may include:

How long you expect to use the asset for

The income or corporation tax, VAT and accounting treatment of the product

For more details of these factors, see the Government’s Leasing and Asset Finance advice (https://www.gov.uk/business-finance-explained/leasing-and-asset-finance)

Suitability of asset finance

Asset finance may not be suitable in certain circumstances. You should be aware:

You will have to continue to pay for the equipment for the agreed period even if you no longer need the equipment or it cannot be used.

If you change the equipment during the agreed minimum rental period, this could lead to higher charges.

Asset finance is unlikely to be suitable if you are not sure if you will need the equipment for the minimum contract period.

Asset finance is unlikely to be suitable if you are not sure the equipment will be maintained and kept in a useable condition for the minimum contract period.

For more details of factors affecting suitability, see the Guidance published by the Institute of Credit Management, Managing cash when it’s time to invest (http://www.icm.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Resources_CFG_fla.pdf)

Contact information

We will use the contact information you provide to us to obtain quotations from lenders. We may also use the information to tell you about our services in the future by letter, telephone, email. Please use the options to select if you would like to opt in to this service.

Complaints procedures

If you have a complaint about our service, please contact us at sales@sterlingmotorcars.co.uk or call us on 01342 322 466. We will acknowledge your complaint within five working days. We aim to resolve complaints within two weeks and to provide a final response to all complaints within four weeks.

If your agreement is regulated under the Consumer Credit Act and if after making a complaint you are still unhappy and feel the matter has not been resolved to your satisfaction please contact the Financial Ombudsman Service (http://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/)

Insurance

A condition of taking out a finance agreement is that you insure the Asset.

Remuneration

We do not charge a fee for our services. Whichever lender we introduce you to, we will typically receive a commission from them (either a fixed fee or a fixed percentage of the amount you borrow).

For your reassurance, all of the lenders we work with could pay commission at different rates, but the commission we receive does not influence the interest rate you will pay. Our aim is to secure finance for you at the lowest interest rate you are eligible for from our panel of lenders.
