The Demands on the Education Sector have changed considerably in the recent years and as budgets tighten leasing has become increasingly important to schools & colleges acquiring equipment they need without a large capital outlay. Schools are under pressure from both parents and educationalists to provide up to date computers but the Nations finances are not in a fit state to provide any longer !
There are rules set by an Act from 2002 that must be complied. The Good news is, we offer compliant Operating Leases with a residual value at the end of the agreement which makes the monthly, quarterly & annual payments lower and can be signed by the school alone- without referring to the LEA.
The lower rentals means less pressure on the budget. An Operating lease can also make regular upgrades and updates more affordable.
As an Example Cost :…….
Capital Value: £100,000 : Annual Operating Lease pricing: £33,332.06 per Annum
Total Cost of Usage over the 3 year period: £99,996.16
The prices are based upon standard PC’s or laptops. If you are looking at Apple equipment to lease for your school then this figure will be nearer £32,000 per annum. This is because Apple Macs have a greater resale value for us at the end of the 3 year lease.
Note that with an Operating Lease (that is ONLY available to educational/government establishments) the equipment is returned at the end of the lease. If you wish to include ownership then a HardSoft Flexi-Lease offers this but at extra cost. Contact us for more details.
