Our simple sale and leaseback process gives your business cash for your existing IT, Industrial and Healthcare assets and immediately provides you with strong budget and refresh information.

Benefit from switching to a structured leasing model

We can offer a sale and leaseback of your assets, which allows you to raise capital by selling your existing IT, industrial or healthcare assets to CHG-MERIDIAN. How can this solution benefit your business exactly? Well, this programme presents your organisation with an influx of cash while you retain all the benefits of usage, yet transfer the risk of ownership and disposal of the assets to us. There is zero disruption to you, no need to retrain staff on new equipment all while providing you with additional capital budget.

If your assets are less than 4 months old, we promise to pay you the original purchase price, if they are older than 4 months, we promise to pay the equivalent net book value of the assets.
