Hire purchase

Flexible buying for business

Through a pre-arranged hire purchase agreement with Clydesdale Bank, you can look for the best asset for your business, knowing the finance is available (subject to status). After agreeing a flexible payment plan to suit your business circumstances, you can buy what you need for your business and the title will pass onto you at the end of the agreement term and after payment of the completion fee.

Benefits of hire purchase:
  • We will work out the best repayment options with you to suit your business and trading patterns
  • Interest charges can be offset against taxable profits and capital allowances can be claimed
Further features
  • Dedicated relationship manager
  • Competitive fixed or variable interest rates
  • Goods are treated as assets on the balance sheet from the start of the agreement
  • Eventual ownership of asset at end of term upon payment of nominal completion fee

Please note that security may be required. Any asset used as security will be at risk if you break the agreement and may be sold to repay your debt.
