Red Tape, Business Loans, Business Insurance

Sources of Red Tape Plaguing UK Small Businesses

6th August 2003

The results of our recent business poll where we asked you which organisations generate the most annoying red tape threw up some interesting results: -

  • Nearly a quarter of small businesses quote Central Government as the primary source of red tape.
  • Banks are almost twice as likely to be cited as the major cause of red tape woes by small businesses in Scotland, than elsewhere in the UK.
  • Small businesses in the Midlands and the North are three times more likely than their London counterparts to view the European Union as generating the biggest bureaucratic burden.

Advantages of Leasing for Equipment Purchases

If you are looking for finance to purchase equipment for your business rather than buying the equipment outright, leasing is an attractive alternative which could work for you.

Some advantages of equipment leasing are: -

  • Allows you to spread the cost of equipment over 3 to 5 years minimising drain on your working capital.
  • All rental payments are tax-deductible.
  • Most leases have a fixed-interest rate which will let you lock into today's attractive interest environment and fix your budget for the coming years.
  • Leasing enables you to stay at the forefront of technological developments. When your lease expires, simply return the old equipment and lease new up-to-date equipment.

The Marketplace can help you find out more about Equipment Leasing and assess if it is the right solution for you.
