Sale & HP Back
Sale & HP back is a way in which you can refinance equipment that has been purchased by a business in the last 90 days into a finance agreement which in turn releases cash back into the business.
You will agree with the lender a value for them to purchase your asset, and use a HP agreement to finance the asset back to you over an agreed period of time.
If you are in need of accessing some cash, you can use existing assets already owned by your business as a type of security in a refinancing agreement. In basic terms, finance is secured against a physical asset of value, already owned by your business (or nearing the end of a finance agreement), to give the lender reassurance and confidence in the business and releasing funds to you.
Businesses often use this to release equity for other projects. Alternatively, it can be used as a way to reduce monthly outgoings if refinancing occurs part way through an already established agreement.
