CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL: ITS Ltd
"Robotics is clearly going to be a big area in the future for our clients – it will be a no brainer in regards to what it can do for them. Leasing was similar, it fitted our post-covid investment plans and speeded up the implementation of cobots within our business."
- Paul Ripley, Finance Manager, ITS Ltd.

You've ASKED. WE've ANSWERED.
What are the advantages of leasing over a traditional purchase?
Leasing allows you to spread the cost over a 36-month period and benefit from automation even before you have to make your first payment. You don't pay your staff's salaries a year in advance but as they contribute to production. So, why should it be any different with production equipment?
How do I know if I will qualify for a rental agreement?
There are many circumstances in which a business qualifies for a rental (or leasing) contract. Our leases are best suited to companies with a good credit history that have been in business for at least two years.
Does equipment leasing offer tax advantages to my business?
Leasing does offer financial flexibility and tax advantages. Consult your financial advisor for the specific situation in your country.
How do I know if leasing is the right choice for my business?
If any of the below apply to your situation, consider a leasing option that matches your company’s budget requirements:
- The equipment that your business needs to be competitive will be obsolete in a few years
- You would like to find a more efficient way to manage your cash flow
- You wish to take advantage of off-balance sheet financing (in OPEX) and possible tax advantages
- You want to cover costs at 100% (including incidental costs)
What costs can be included in a leasing contract?
Anything you buy through your Universal Robots partner (robots, tools, installation, services, etc.) can be added to the contract.
OUR FINANCING SOLUTIONS:
UR Solution Finance proposes two kinds of rental agreements. They relate to the use of one or several pieces of specific equipment over a period ranging from 24 to 72 months, in exchange for fixed monthly payments that are agreed in advance.
Our financing offers adapt to the needs of your company. In just a few days, you can have access to an automated solution that is immediately operational and compatible with your needs, no matter how specific. At the end of the rental period, you can choose to:
- buy the equipment at a reduced price,
- upgrade to more recent technology,
- renew the financing agreement,
- or simply return the equipment that you have been renting!
With an equipment lease, your company can acquire a cobot at a reduced price by renting it and using it in your company to increase your production capacity. The option to buy allows you to reserve the option to buy the cobot at a reduced price at the end of the agreement period. This solution offers you the opportunity to upgrade your industrial equipment more frequently, and to invest in new means of industrial production while retaining control over your budget.
A financial lease is another form of rental agreement that consists of a periodic payment in exchange for a collaborative robotics solution over a long period of time. It is the perfect solution for companies that need to renew their equipment on a regular basis, in order to keep up with the latest technological developments. In contrast to an equipment lease, a financial lease does not offer the option of purchasing the equipment. At the end of the finance agreement period, you return the equipment. You can then go on to finance the renewal of your industrial equipment.
