THE SIZWE FINANCE OPTION

The rapid speed of changing technological developments, converging technologies and the requirement to access and provide more information faster, can make it difficult for some companies to optimise and align with requirements due to the financial implications. Purchasing equipment outright requires a substantial outlay of highly valuable cash reserves which could be invested in assets that generate income or appreciate. Traditional finance lease and asset purchase facilities are recorded in the balance sheet as financial debt, which may unnecessarily affect existing credit limits and tie up security that may be better utilised for other business purposes.  Lease/Rental Solutions payments, on the other hand, can be positioned as an operating expense, allowing for minimised predicted cash outflow. We offer a Lease/ Rental solution to our clients’ benefit by using our offerings without the inherent costs and risks associated with ownership.
