Project Management

Swift believe that you cannot execute a successful project without good management practices. Which is why we act as a liason between all trades associated with our works.

We will ensure that all works are factored in at the logical time and in the correct sequence, thereby eliminating confusion and crossover. We adhere to the best working practices and operate within the guidelines of our Industry regulations.

All staff are suitably qualified, and all certification is held at our offices and updated as required. Swift are accredited with the following professional bodies CHAS, Constructionline and Safe Contractor.

Design

Our Design services are simple and straightforward. We commit to designing your project and pre-agree a design package of 10 hours work for a set fee.

After we have designed your project and you have authorised its suitability for your business, we transfer the design into your ownership. This means you can then shop around for the best prices to deliver your project.

Of course, we want to have the opportunity to quote you for supply and Installation and if we win the project, we refund the design fee. We are confident that if we have designed correctly for you, we will be successful and win the project based upon our quality equipment and excellent pricing policy.

We design in AutoCad 2D and if required 3D fully rendered so you can visualise your project right at the planning phase. Innovation, speed of response and continual improvement are key to Swift in our design practices.

Installation

Our installation packages are comprehensive and easy to understand. We will agree a fee, tell you exactly what’s included and carry out the installation. We include for delivery to site of all components and we install to within 1 meter of suitably isolated services.

All work is guaranteed and undertaken by fully qualified engineers who will issue any relevant certification upon completion. Of course, we understand that sometimes there are unexpected circumstances which require going that extra mile and at Swift we will endeavour to accommodate all reasonable requests.

We will also provide equipment specification sheets for other trades to work from and provide services. All our staff are dressed appropriately and are always polite  and always act in a manner that befits the Swift brand.

After Sales Support

All products and services come with warranty and we will specify the length and time of the warranty ahead of any purchasing. We try only to use manufacturers who have a policy of stocking spares even after they delist a product.

Even though the manufacturers maintain the warranty we will still support you and give aid to get any issues rectified as soon as possible to minimise your inconvenience. We can offer extended warranties and service packages upon request.

Leasing

Tax breaks mean leasing is not expensive!

Many people believe leasing is an expensive option. This simply is not the case. Therefore even large ‘cash rich’ companies are choosing to lease.

Unlike many high street bank facilities or overdrafts that are subject to the change in market conditions, a lease facility with its protected payment and fixed interest rates allows for effective future budgeting.

100% allowable against pre-tax profits!

Because finance lease rentals are 100% allowable against pre-tax profits, the total cost of your purchase, capital and interest can be offset during the lease period, with your payments deducted as a trading expense. Contrary to popular belief leasing is not expensive, in fact the real cost of your lease can be significantly lower than the payments you make!

A cash purchase will allow tax relief only on the capital allowances on the equipment. This is currently 40% of the cost in the first year and only 25% in subsequent years based on a reducing balance each year.

Types of Lease

Through our finance partners, the Swift Group can offer leasing arrangements regardless of the type of equipment purchased or value. Leasing equipment through Pico makes financial sense in the times of austerity, please see below for a breakdown of the types of lease we offer. You’ll find there is a lease plan to suit every business.

Hire Purchase / Lease Purchase

After an initial deposit regular payments are made over a defined period of time. Ownership passes over at the end of the contract upon payment of an option to purchase fee. Payments can be fixed, or variable rate interest and repayments can be monthly, quarterly or seasonal. Capital allowances are claimed against the purchase with the interest offset against taxable profits.

Finance Lease

Similar in structure to Hire Purchase, however, ownership remains with the finance company throughout the agreement. The rentals attract VAT and can be offset against taxable profits as a trading expense. At the end of the agreement you can retain the use of the equipment by payment of a ‘secondary period rental’ or alternatively it can be sold and a percentage of the sales proceeds will be due to you from the finance company.

Operating Lease

An operating lease offers the same taxable benefits as a finance lease but differs in that it can be considered an off-balance sheet facility and typically runs for less than the economic life of the asset. At the end of the term the goods are normally returned to the originating supplier or manufacturer.

*Please note that under operating leases the equipment will be subject to ‘return conditions’ and you should always seek the advice of your accountant or tax advisor before entering into this type of agreement.

Sale and Leaseback/Hire Purchase Back

An effective way of releasing capital tied up in fixed assets unencumbered by existing finance agreements. If you would like to discuss any of these types of leases, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
