Siemens Financial Services (Siemens) has launched a 360° IT finance solution which provides an advancement to leasing driven IT investment for UK businesses. The 360° IT finance solution allows businesses to use leasing to finance IT solutions where the software, and any associated soft-costs, constitute a significant part of the total cost. According to Siemens, this allows them to take advantage of the benefits of leasing for the entire installation, such as offsetting payments against taxable profits, fixed payments and the inherent flexibility of the leasing arrangements, which caters for upgrade and add-on requirements as needs change over time.
