Escrow Lease / Commercial Hire Purchase


Make progress payments by way of interim finance on equipment being constructed or installed over a period of months.


  • The Lessee/Hirer enters into an Escrow agreement with the finance company for the construction period.
  • The lender will make progress payments for the goods upon receipt of authorisation from the Lessee/Hirer (you).
  • At completion and satisfactory handover to the Lessee or Hirer, your business enters into a standard Lease or Hire Purchase Agreement with the lender for a new term.

Tax deductible

There may be tax benefits of claiming the rental payment. You need to discuss this with your accountant.

Financing Tip

“Escrow is a performance contract. You need to make sure the costs have all been allowed for and lock in a contract with the manufacturer / builder, so there are no surprises at the end. CPI Finance can work with you to look at other buffer solutions if needed”.
