Client has been renting some equipent for a fixed term under what looks like a finance lease. The finance company have said that the client can buy the goods at the end of the agreement for £100 plus vat.
However, the Finace company will only sell the goods and issue an invoice to a third party and not my client the hirer. They have suggested she use either a solicitor or accountant (i.e. me) and that that third party should sell the goods to her and invoice her for the same amounty. She can then actually pay the Finance company direct herself.
This seems a strange arrangement. has anyone come across anything similar?
The Finance company say that they cannot invoice the Hirer direct to sell the goods at the end of the terms.
