Leading workplace consultant, Saracen Interiors has launched a brand new finance solution in a bid to help its clients to fast-track projects without being slowed down by immediate budget constraints. The affordable, tax-efficient, flexible solution incorporates fixed monthly payments, competitive rates and has been designed to help clients in the funding of all their office fit out, refurbishment and furniture requirements.
The company is partnering with office furniture and fit out lease finance specialist, Plus Finance, to ensure that its clients receive the best tailor-made packages from a company that is expert at arranging finance solutions for those looking to improve their working environments. Joint managing director of Saracen Interiors, Michael Page explains: "We want our clients to have the option of getting projects started straight away, when work is needed to be done, rather than having to wait for capital to become available and restricting themselves as a consequence.
"This solution is a smart, tax-efficient way to create a beautiful new workplace without compromising future working capital or using up bank credit lines. By spreading the cost of a project over three or five years, our customers get the right solution for their business environment rather than being restricted by current capital budget and the fixed payments allow for accurate budgeting and forecasting. In addition, where expenditure does qualify, payments are 100 per cent tax allowable making it the most tax-efficient way of financing a project – it's the only method by which a project can be totally offset against taxable profits."
Saracen offers turn key solutions to any of its clients who need it, taking the company beyond design, refurbishment and fit out work and covering services such as overseeing office moves and sourcing furniture and other interior items for their clients. Michael sees the finance offering as the final piece of the puzzle: "We are putting it in the mix as something extra we can help our clients with as we pride ourselves on offering the full-service option. We have always approached our contracts holistically – in our role as consultants, it's our job to help our clients to problem solve."
