Merchant West Transport and Logistics Finance

Merchant West’s Asset Finance division has a team of experts who understand the complexities of the transport and logistics industry and can provide finance solutions for trucks, trailers, busses and other related assets. Our Asset Finance solutions include:

Operating Lease –An operating lease is complete off balance sheet funding which allows for zero depreciation to write off. The interest is also calculated on the capital amount excluding VAT. There is no ownership of the asset(s) at the end of the period, businesses therefore pay for the use and not the depreciation. Note that there are also operating lease options available with ownership.

Instalment Sale – An instalment sale is where ownership is automatically transferred to the business once the final instalment has been received. Unlike with an operating lease, this method is treated as on balance sheet funding.

Sale and Leaseback – With a sale and leaseback, businesses can sell the asset(s) back to the relevant transport and logistics finance companies and rent it back over the remaining lifespan. This allows businesses to still have use of the asset while freeing up cash.
