Funding for Education

Do you need new technology to replace existing ageing equipment but there aren’t the funds available? Have you ever considered or know anything about finance funding?

We understand that leasing hasn’t had a good presence within schools in the past, mainly due to bad business offered by photocopy and office equipment companies, this has now changed with the laws and regulations laid down by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Leasing will help you relieve the strain and pressures of rolling out much needed costly upgrades and enables you to have a pay back structure that’s convenient to you.

Why do schools rent equipment?

There is a myth that only people who can’t afford to purchase outright actually choose to rent equipment. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Many people tend to overlook the fact that with any capital equipment, they are actually paying for what the equipment does and not what it is! Now, no organisation would dream of paying an employee’s salary 3 years in advance, they pay for the benefit as they derive it on a monthly basis. A flexible rental plan enables schools to apply exactly the same concept to their equipment. They pay for it as they receive the benefit from it.

Leasing enables you to have the equipment you need, when you need it – If you have a capital budget of £50,000 per year for three years, it is only possible to purchase £50,000 of equipment on day one. By using Leasing, you can get £140,000 of equipment right now. We can assist you in acquiring the technology you need now and arrange a “bespoke” rental plan to reflect your budgetary needs. Your school can start realising the benefits right away.

All programs are totally flexible so you can add more equipment to them whenever it is required. Leasing is the cost efficient way to acquire equipment.
