According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, over 2.6 million new cars were sold within the UK in 2015. More than 980,000 of these, – worth £16.2 billion, were purchased through finance and leasing alone.
But it’s not just leasing in the automotive industry that is booming. Customers and businesses are used to leasing everyday items from washing machines to office space, enabling them to get what they need, when they need it. So, it comes as no surprise that this concept is also hugely popular in the smartphone market.
According to the statistics portal Statista, shipments for smartphones are expected to reach almost 1.9 billion by 2018, a tenfold increase from the 2009 figure. This means that over a third of the world’s population is likely to own a smartphone by next year.
Imagine today’s world without smart mobile devices. We certainly can’t. With mobile devices such as iPads, iPhones and Android tablets powering today’s business activities, the need to keep up to date with constantly-evolving technology is crucial. But considering the average new device costs more than £500, that’s when the price of the latest tech gizmos starts to skyrocket.
This is when leasing becomes the most sensible and cost-effective answer, allowing businesses to get hold of the most up-to-date devices, which make their employees’ lives better. And the obvious spread-out cost isn’t the only benefit. With leasing, businesses can enjoy up to a 100% tax relief and fixed payment structures to suit budgetary needs.
