Why asset finance is crucial when setting up your healthcare business

The healthcare sector encompasses optical, dentistry and health and beauty/aesthetics. If you are looking to grow your business, or acquire much needed equipment, cash flow doesn’t have to be a blocker to growth. With funding for your healthcare business you can finance a range of equipment and assets and allow your business to grow.

But what exactly is asset finance, and how can it help your healthcare business?

What is asset finance?

Asset finance is a finance option which allows businesses to acquire much needed equipment without having to pay upfront. Instead of buying the asset straight out, you will pay a regular amount to use the asset over an agreed period, avoiding the full cost of buying outright.

Waiting until you’ve got enough cash upfront to purchase an asset can slow down your business growth, which is why asset finance can be so valuable to a business: it allows you to obtain the assets you need for your business without having to wait.

What can healthcare businesses use asset finance for?

You might be surprised by the range of assets that can be financed for the healthcare sector. We’ve given some examples of assets that can be finances for opticians, dentists, and aesthetics companies. These are not an exhaustive list though, and if you’re looking to finance a particular asset a business finance broker who specialises in funding for the healthcare sector should be able to help.
