Frequently Asked Questions

Why Lease?

Leasing is probably the most popular method of financing new equipment today. Virtually any item of equipment can be leased.


Should I pay cash or lease?

You may be able to afford to buy the equipment outright, but before you make this decision you must consider the following:


Do my payments increase if Inflation or Interest Rates rise?

No. Your monthly payment is fixed at the start of the lease and so are unaffected by interest rate rises. This enables you to budget your cash flow more accurately. As inflation rises, because your payments are fixed the cost of the equipment reduces in real terms.


How do I apply for finance?

Simply add the products you wish to purchase to your online shopping basket and proceed to checkout. The Finance Payment Option will appear when your total basket value is at least £1,000 + VAT. Then all you need to do is select the Finance Payment Option, fill out the application form and submit it. Once your finance has been approved by Kennet Leasing, which usually takes no more 48 hours, we will fulfil your order.


How do I make my payments?

All payments are mainly made by Direct Debit on the same date each month.


Should I go to my bank?

If you use all your cash or any overdraft facilities, you leave yourself in a vulnerable position to react to any unexpected needs of short-term borrowing. By leasing, you don’t need to find the whole invoice amount “upfront”.


Who Leases?

Nearly every market sector- whether large or small – benefits from leasing, from new start business to large established companies.


Is leasing tax efficient?

Yes. Payments can be offset against any tax liabilities you may have. Your accountant will be able to give you more information on this.


How does leasing work in practice?

You normally only pay one monthly payment in advance with a lease agreement*; this enables you to choose the best equipment available with only a small initial cash outlay. You can therefore have the best equipment available with the latest technology with only a small initial outlay, and start to enjoy the extra income this generates before your next lease payment is due.
