Scaffolding finance in the UK

Erecting scaffolding is a vital part of the job completion process for many construction businesses.

Whether working on residential homes or larger-scale commercial projects, many companies in the construction industry are unable to progress a job without scaffolding.

The cost of scaffolding, however, can be huge – especially if required for a large project, as the cost hinges on the size and duration of the undertaking.

For smaller construction businesses, this can cause difficulties – particularly if you’re still awaiting payment from previous jobs.

Our scaffolding finance arrangements can be a massive help to construction businesses, aiding with timely project completion while supporting your cash flow.

What is scaffolding finance?

According to Checkatrade, the average cost of scaffolding is typically around £22.50 per m2. This cost quickly adds up, even for smaller residential jobs, and can be a huge cost for larger projects.

Scaffolding equipment finance, whereby your business can spread the cost of scaffolding into manageable monthly payments, can therefore be a helpful aid for construction companies. A scaffolding finance arrangement can help you take on a wider range of projects and preserve working capital.

Financing can be particularly beneficial in the construction industry, given the prominence of invoicing. A financing arrangement can ensure that your cash flow remains regular, giving you the opportunity to budget more effectively for the future.

Purchasing scaffolding outright can be beneficial for some businesses. However, for most businesses and sole traders, scaffolding finance can help maintain your cash flow and grow your business comfortably and sustainably.

Scaffolding finance options  

At Anglo Scottish, we offer a range of scaffolding equipment finance options to help support your business growth. Our expert support team will work with you to find out more about your specific situation and requirements and help identify which of these options are best suited to you.

Scaffolding hire purchase

Hire purchase is a type of finance that allows your business to spread the cost of your scaffolding over a set period.

Scaffolding operating lease

An operating lease is an agreement that allows your business to pay to use and operate scaffolding for a fixed period, without actually owning it.

Scaffolding finance lease

A finance lease is similar to an operating lease in that you can use and benefit from scaffolding without owning it. However, unlike an operating lease, a finance lease will appear on the balance sheet of your business.

As well as these traditional forms of asset finance, commercial finance solutions like a business credit card or small business loan can help support your construction business and navigate cash flow problems.

Securing your scaffolding finance

Securing your scaffolding finance at Anglo Scottish has never been easier. Thanks to our varied funding portfolio of over 70 funders, we can connect you with the right funding arrangement for your business.

Simply tell us how much scaffolding you need to finance and how long you need to finance it for. Our expert team can then work with you to identify the best possible lending terms for your situation.

Benefits of scaffolding finance  

Opting to finance your scaffolding with a scaffolding equipment lease, rather than buying outright, can have a range of benefits for a construction business.

The right finance arrangement will preserve your working capital, allowing you flexibility with future projects and the ability to budget more effectively.

Depending on the nature of your business, the consistent payment options offered by a scaffolding equipment finance plan could help you negate seasonal payment patterns.

In many events, the monthly payments on your scaffolding are 100% tax-deductible. This means that you could also enjoy tax benefits as a result of financing scaffolding, instead of buying outright.
