Kelway Leasing is a specialist business unit operating under the Kelway brand, focused on the development and implementation of innovative IT leasing solutions for both Corporate and the Public Sector customers. Our flexible funding options can be further customised to suit your business requirements.
Information technology is essential to every organisation. However, with growing quantities of data, increasingly large networks, more stringent security requirements and regular software upgrades, businesses can only stay ahead of the game if they constantly invest in new technology. The innovation cycles in IT are becoming shorter and costly equipment depreciates over time so that the use of the asset, rather than the ownership, becomes more important. Consequently, the question of how to finance IT investment is a constant concern, especially in challenging economic times.
Organisations use many different financial mechanisms to meet their capital and investment requirements. In broad terms, itís the balance of cash-in-hand vs capital-locked-into-assets. Today, cash retention provides the flexibility to take advantage of new opportunities as they arise and meet unexpected financial demands. Equally, itís not just a case of moving from a CAPEX to OPEX model Ė the latter is not the answer to everything and needs robust, clear mechanisms to deliver real value to the business.
Kelway Leasing is a partnership between Kelway (UK) Ltd and CHG-MERIDIAN (CHG), a leading global IT leasing and portfolio management company. Kelway is an independent company that delivers innovative IT services and solutions and exceptional customer service through proven technology, processes and people. We are passionate about delivering service that is focused on ensuring technology can support organisations to cut costs, remove complexity and drive the business forward. Kelway Leasing is independent of manufacturers, suppliers and banks and acts as an impartial adviser and provider. We have a dedicated team of specialists who can design the right financial solution for each organisationís IT lifecycle requirements.
From our UK base, we offer a global service and deliver structured leasing arrangements for clients across Europe, AsiaPac and North America. For organisations operating in multiple countries, we have a centralised framework that enables a standardised approach to simplify the process and maximise the benefits of utilising leasing. Within the framework we offer two structures that are proven to deliver real benefits Ė we can either develop one contract that caters for individual entities (supporting internal cross-charging) or split the arrangement into multiple contracts on a per entity basis. Documentation can be completed in country.
Leasing the equipment means that you have the benefit of the latest technology whilst Kelway Finance takes the risk of the asset losing its value or becoming obsolete. As you only pay for the use of the equipment in small periodic sums, your cash flow is improved without the burden of large capital expenditure and we can customise the term to suit your requirements. Ambitious projects can become reality with the aid of Kelway Leasing, enhancing your organisation and its competitiveness.
Leasing IT from Kelway allows you to select the period of the agreement, usually matched to your life expectancy for the product. We provide you with the equipment and charge you a periodic rental. Alongside our rentals we have the facility to bill and collect insurance, hardware maintenance and software support. Kelway Leasing can be flexible and offer a highly cost effective technology refresh to the latest equipment either at the end or at any time during the lease term.
Our range of leasing options:
- Operating Lease
Customers can lease assets from Kelway over an agreed period. An Operating Lease offers lower rentals than other forms of borrowing because Kelway take a residual value in the equipment which brings cash-flow benefits to your organisation.
A Masterlease accommodates implementation of new systems in larger establishments with the specific terms agreed at the outset. The funding level is agreed at the beginning and the client then calls off delivery of the equipment as it is required with rentals only paid on the items that have been delivered.
- Software Lease
Designed for projects where little or no hardware is involved such as web development.
- Lease Rental
Leasing arrangement for assets that have a longer lifespan enabling the customer to retain the equipment at the end of the period through extended rental options.
- Technology Refresh
Designed for educational establishments to upgrade high proportions of their original equipment to the latest specification.
- Flexi Lease
Kelway provides customers with the complete flexibility to tailor payments to meet complex or unusual requirements.
- Lease Purchase
A straightforward repayment facility where the customer ultimately owns the assets.
- Operating Lease
A Kelway finance solution will benefit different businesses in different ways. If your business pays Corporation Tax Lease payments are considered operating expenses and are fully tax-deductible, qualifying for an allowance of up to 23% per annum. If you are funded by external sources or grants then periodic payment plans can be tailored to suit your incoming funding. A Kelway lease will allow you a large degree of flexibility to upgrade or add to your existing IT solution.
Whatever your circumstances it is always better to finance assets out of future income rather than surrendering your hard earned capital today.
