Shredder Leasing

ABT Office Supplies Ltd


Photocopier Leasing Agreements

Our leasing agreements are through a number of leasing companies that are registered members of the Finance and Leasing Association, including Siemens Financial Services (previously known as Shroeder Leasing), an international financial services company, part of the Siemens AG Group, with an international presence in more than 30 countries. Terms and conditions are written in plain English and full details on total costs payable over the period are crystal clear before the agreement commences. All agreements are for a fixed amount for a fixed period (any period up to 5 years maximum).

  • Fixed rentals - to allow you to budget.
  • Flexible repayments - to meet your required needs.
  • Flexibility to upgrade - you can benefit from the latest technology at all times.
  • No initial capital outlay - the first payment only needs to be for one quarter rather than the total value of the equipment.
  • Existing borrowings remain unaffected - other credit lines will not be affected.
  • Rentals are 100% tax deductable - all rentals can be offset against taxable profits, therefore making it attractive from a cash flow perspective.

Cash vs Lease

With a simple calculation we can show you the comparison between a hire agreement and a cash purchase. With a hire agreement, tax relief is available on all rentals at the highest tax rate you pay.

A cash purchase will only allow tax relief only on the capital allowances on the equipment. This is currently 40% of the cost in the first year and only 25% in subsequent years based on a reducing balance each year.

This is a model showing the difference in tax relief available.
