COMMENT FI NANCI NG YOU R CAM ER A ... Why it is better to use specialised brokers rather than high street banks when you think to finance your camera. Peter Savage Chief executive of Azule Finance. Kit Plus IBC - MStor - Relax - IBC 010816.indd 1 One of the biggest challenges for new entrepreneurs is getting access to funds. It is especially difficult for the young photographers, cameramen or lighting artists, who often get rejected by high street banks. So what shall they do? There are small broker companies that specialise on particular industries. For example, Azule Finance offers asset finance from £1000 up wards for everyone from a one-man band to established companies who are looking to expand. Specialist brokers work with a wide range of banks, and know each bank’s requirements, so using them can save you a lot of time when you are looking for an asset finance provider. On top of that they often can “put a word” for you and the bank will look at your business more favourably. Asset finance... available not only to tangible assets but software projects as well When thinking about asset finance, one often assumes tangible assets: cameras, lenses, lighting, and speakers. Few know that it is also applicable to software. Indeed, why should there be a difference? Business asset finance is available to anyone who uses the kit to earn their living. In a lot of industries such as post- production, animation, architecture, specific software is the main tool to deliver services to its customers, and there is no reason why it cannot be financed. So next time you are struggling to pay for CAD or Adobe license for the new team, why not look into finance. The solution can be simpler and closer to you than you think. 01/08/2016 12:21:05 KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 116 AUGUST 2016 | 33
