Finance Options
AFL Trucks offers a wide range of purchase and finance options for both new and used equipment and can tailor a financial solution to help you acquire the fork truck you need.

 

Lease Purchase


Lease Purchase payments are made on a monthly or quarterly basis and leaves you as the sole owner of the machine at the end of the lease period. VAT on the capital cost is immediately recoverable and the Lessee can deduct from profits assessed for tax, the writing down allowances and the interest portion of the lease payments. Costs covering a wide range of planned preventative maintenance programmes can be added to the same lease.

 

Finance Lease


Finance Leasing is normally over a 3 to 7 year period. Payments are made on a monthly or quarterly basis and are fully tax deductable. The underlying purchase cost is shown on your balance sheet. At the end of the lease period, the lessee has a choice of options: a rental rebate of at lease 95% of resale proceeds, or a secondary lease period at a token rent. Again costs covering a wide range of planned preventative maintenance programmes can be added to the same lease.

 

Outright Purchase


The equipment is purchased outright and payment is due on delivery. The equipment is shown on the customer’s balance sheet as an asset and customers can offset capital allowances against taxable income.

 

Contract Hire


This form of finance is chosen by a large proportion of users of materials handling equipment.

 

If you require one rental to cover both the finance and maintenance of the equipment, giving fixed budgeting with no unexpected repair bills, you can choose a Contract Hire Agreement. Please see our Contract Hire page.
