Type of Lease

Do I need a security?
The leased asset is our 'security'.
What is the maximum amount I can get?
We can finance up to 100% of the Ex-VAT cost of the asset depending on your repayment capacity and the risk related to the asset financed.
What are your interest rates?
The interest rate is determined by the asset financed, risk related to the asset, your credit history, stability and ability to service the loan. Once you have submitted your application, we can assess it and provide you before you are committed to proceeding with the loan.
Can I settle the loan early?
Yes. You can repay your loan early.
If you want to settle your loan, you must repay the whole amount due. You must contact us to calculate the exact amount due as you pay interest up to the day you settle your account. There are other charges involved if you wish an early settlement. Consult your lease agreement for further details.
