1 good reason leasing may not be the best option

asset finance success

Established in 1994 Focus Leasing is not unfamiliar to the effects of events such as “The B Word” can have on the corporate world, but realistically everything can’t just stop – life in the business world must go on.  

So Focus have chosen this time to re-brand and make sure that people have one place they can discuss their finance requirements – a one stop shop if you like. 

Goodbye “Focus Leasing”

and hello “Focus Finance”.

Why now? 

Over 25 years ago the focus of finance companies was on leasing as this was the best way to preserve your cash flow and get optimum tax relief but despite the marketing information put out by many others in our industry, this is now not often the case. 

With the government making a push to encourage companies to invest, the Annual Investment Allowance increased to £1m as of January 2019, and as a result the majority of SMEs are probably eligible for this. Therefore it is down to each individual business whether hire purchase or lease will be best for them from a tax perspective and we don’t want to mislead before we’ve even spoken to you with something as simple as our name! 

We have always been asked what can we fund, and we have often found that an easier question is what we can’t fund. However the word leasing conjures up thoughts of photocopier and car sales. 

Simply speaking we can fund anything that the business may need from coffee machines and IT equipment to fit out of office spaces or plasma cutting equipment – I would say the list is fairly endless. 

So our aim in 2020 is to eradicate any misconceptions such as “leasing is best” and “leasing is just for cars”, and focus on providing all funding requirements for our customers from invoice finance to loans and everything in between.

are you calling about a direct debit you don't recognise?

We have published this message as the payment that has been collected from you has nothing to do with our company. We are an asset finance company in Hampshire, we do not collect direct debits from any customers and only deal with businesses.

We receive many calls about this, as we have a similar name to the company that is collecting these direct debits. The company responsible is Focus Finance and Marketing Limited. Their website is below, however they do not answer their phone or respond:


Our understanding is that bank details are being obtained from people unknowingly, or on the pretence of providing a loan, and this is a fraudulent company.

We would therefore request you contact your bank to report this and ask them to escalate to their fraud team and stop further payments from being taken.

Please also report Focus Finance & Marketing Limited to:

Financial Conduct Authority
Information Commissioners Office

We are now at a point where this is impacting our business, so we are also doing everything we can to get them shut down so your help would be appreciated.

Please feel free to copy the above message to provide to your bank.
