Sale and leaseback: swap buying for leasing
Have you bought your IT equipment and then decided to lease it anyway? That's not a problem. We offer a solution for this eventuality: sale and leaseback. The way it works is simple. You sell us your equipment and then lease it back. This enables you to improve your liquidity, optimise your balance sheet and ensure that in future you are always using the latest computer technology.
We offer you a fair price
The sale and leaseback process starts with the valuation of the equipment being purchased. The price we offer you for your used equipment is based either on its capitalised residual value - which does not affect the income statement - or on its current market value. The price at which the IT equipment is sold is also used to calculate the user fee.
Rolling replacement ensures you always have the latest technology
When we purchase your equipment, it can be classified according to its estimated useful life. This means, for example, that one third of the equipment can be immediately replaced with new machines, while one third can be used for a further year and the final third can be used for a further two years. This strategy constitutes a rolling replacement programme under which one third of the hardware is replaced each year and no equipment is used by the company for more than three years. This enables you to prevent your IT infrastructure from becoming obsolete. On top of this you benefit from significant cost reductions in the procurement, administration and maintenance of your equipment.
Free up liquidity while strengthening your balance sheet and improving your ROI
Sale and leaseback agreements enable you to free up liquidity that was previously tied up in the company. You can then invest this liquidity more profitably in other areas - for example in research & development or in entering new markets. At the same time you improve your equity ratio because the leased equipment may not appear on your balance sheet.
