What is Business Hire Purchase?

Business Hire Purchase is a flexible and cash flow-friendly way to fund expensive items like equipment or vehicles without paying in full upfront.

You ‘hire’ the asset you need by making regular monthly payments over an agreed period of time. At the end of your hire purchase agreement, you have the option to ‘purchase’ the asset to own it.

Frequently asked questions

  • Hire Purchase, or HP, is one form of asset finance that helps you fund a new asset and ends with you owning it outright. In simple terms HP works like this:

    You find the asset you want, pay us a 10% deposit, we then buy the asset on your behalf and “hire” it to you over an agreed term, usually between 12 and 60 months, and charge you monthly “rentals” that cover the remaining cost and the interest on the amount borrowed.

    When you have settled the total outstanding payment you pay a small “option to purchase” fee and we transfer the asset to your ownership.

    So, you hire it first and purchase it at the end, hence the name Hire Purchase.

  • Yes, you can but you may need to pay early repayment charges. You can speak to one of our specialists to find out more.

  • As shown above, you can cancel your agreement but early repayment charges may apply. You can speak to one of our specialists to find out more.
