Dental finance agreement types

Our range of Leasing, Hire Purchase and Loan products allow for fixed monthly repayments enabling you to budget with confidence whilst enhancing your cash flow.

    Hire Purchase allows outright ownership of the asset and enables you to spread the cost over a term that suits you.

    • Expenditure may be allowable against taxable profit within your Annual Investment Allowance in the year of purchase to the sum of £1,000,000
    • Easier cash flow budgeting as repayments are fixed
    • Capital preservation - existing funds can be used elsewhere
    • Interest charges can be offset against profits for taxation
    • Outright ownership on completion of the agreement

    If you want to maximise the use of your equipment without the responsibility of owning it, leasing will give you the freedom and flexibility you need.

    • Easier cash flow budgeting as repayments are fixed
    • Capital preservation - existing funds can be used elsewhere
    • No upfront deposits required
    • Protection of existing credit lines, making any further borrowing easier

            Consultant Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, University Dental Practice

            I have been qualified about 25 years and have always bought things outright, against the advice of my accountant!
            However, for a recent renovation/major refurbishment at one of my practices I heeded my accountant's advice and looked at finance options. Many of my colleagues had used Braemar Finance in the past and were delighted. So I approached them and was very impressed - they were efficient, quick and offered a fabulous tailor-made finance option for my refurb. They also did this seamlessly. I would recommend using Braemar Finance for all your financing needs.
