If you are just starting up, HardSoft are still able to help you with your leasing and finance. It is unusual for a company to be so supportive to those just starting out but HardSoft make a special effort to help new businesses get up and running. We will offer the same terms and conditions if you are an established company or you started trading last week. We will also not discriminate between sole traders and limited companies. HardSoft are willing to commit between £1000-£15000 of lease finance which can be used on hardware or software.
Getting you started! It is so hard for a new business to establish a credit history and often you will have to incur a guarantee against your home. A HardSoft lease will require your private address to trace your credit history and some recent bank statements- for your business or personal ones. We just need to prove that you can make the monthly lease payments. If it is difficult to assess then we could require 3 months payment up front. If you have set up a new limited company, a Limited Directors indemnity may be required. The first payment will be one month’s payment equivalent. Sometimes we will set the term at 24 rather than 36 months also. We have helped many successful start- up businesses lease with new computers…..
