About Nissan Forklift Financial Solutions

Nissan Forklift Financial Solutions is funded through BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions and has worked in partnership with Nissan Forklift GB since 1993.

Nissan Forklift Financial Solutions offers finance options to the following end user customers:

  • Contract Hire (links through to page with information on contract hire, as below)
  • Lease Purchase (link through to page with information on lease purchase, as below)

Contract Hire

Contract Hire agreements typically offer a complete package including delivery, maintenance, service and repairs. This not only offers you worry-free upkeep of the asset throughout the term of the agreement, it also means you know exactly what the expense for that asset will be, without any hidden surprises.

Qualifying agreements are treated as off-balance sheet, which means that financial ratios such as gearing and liquidity are not adversely affected. In most cases, rentals are 100% allowable against tax.


  • Easy budgeting
  • Complete package
  • Off-balance sheet funding
  • Tax-efficient

Lease Purchase

Lease Purchase agreements offer you the option to purchase the product at the end of the lease. The lease company has a retail value of the product and can work out its estimated future value at the end of the contractual period based on its depreciation. This is known as the residual value.

You can place a lump sum/down payment on the product up front and then make monthly payments on the difference between the retail value and the residual value.

At the end of the lease period, the customer must make a final balloon payment. This may be done through a cash payment or with additional finance or part-exchange. The agreement can be settled at any point during the lease.
