Finance Your 3D Printer

As many SME’s will attest to, any investment in a new business asset can be a potential worry. Irrespective of the equipment’s anticipated efficiencies and benefits, the cost of acquisition is quite often significant and imminent. With that in mind, Solid Print3D can offer a variety of different Asset Finance solutions via our authorised partner Hensley Stephens.

Their facilities can help to not only alleviate the upfront cost of your purchase; but preserve cash flow by spreading the cost over a pre-determined period. All the while allowing you to make the most of the improved productivity and opportunities that the new equipment can provide.

Finance Lease:

  • Solid Print 3D are paid directly by the funder; for both asset and VAT.
  • VAT is therefore payable on the rentals – instead of up front as per a Hire Purchase or Loan.
  • The finance company owns the asset and rent it to you over an agreed period.
  • They claim the writing down allowances on the asset and you can normally offset 100% of the rentals against taxable profits.

Hire Purchase:

  • Solid Print 3D are paid directly by the funder for the asset; with you paying the VAT.
  • The asset goes on your balance sheet and you can usually claim Writing Down Allowances, along with tax relief on the interest element of your payments.
  • At the end of the agreement, there is a small “option to purchase” fee.

Examples

Typically, the large build volume Raise 3D Pro 2 could cost from as little as £105+VAT per month, with the feature rich Ultimaker S5 at £169+VAT. Please feel free to contact either Solid Print 3D or Hensley Stephens if you have any further questions.
