The Benefits of Financing with Guard Tech Limited:Guard Tech Leasing Quote

Have you ever wondered why all FTSE 100 companies lease? Its simple, due to the tax efficient nature of leasing it can actually cost you less to lease the equipment than to buy outright or finance with a normal loan.

Guard Tech Limited has partnered with finance provider Tower Leasing Ltd to provide you with the option of a more affordable solution to suit your business needs.

By choosing to finance our products, you will be able to enjoy some fantastic benefits:

  • Keep cash flow within the business.
  • Get the equipment you want when you need it, not just when budgets allow.
  • Enjoy 100% tax relief rentals payable.

  • Keep up with the latest technology by upgrading the equipment at any time throughout the lease period.
  • Structure your lease payments to suit your budgetary needs and allowances.
  • Protect your existing credit lines by using leasing as an alternative funding facility.
