Why did you decide to purchase a Vertical Panel Saw?

We had an existing panel saw that was many years old and spent longer been broke than operational. It was taking up far too much space room within the workshop an we wanted a compact wall saw to meet out sheet cutting needs, an the Sagetech Koolkut wall saw looked like it would do! We needed to replace the machine so we didn’t lose production time to keep up with our high demand

The guys at Sagetech helped us alot! From the initial phone call to the office the guys  helped us choose the correct wall saw for our needs that would allow us to cut our standard and also thicker materials – the Koolkut vertical panel saw seemed like the perfect fit. The machine was delivered and swiftly installed with no problems! Hands down to Rob, one of the engineers he provided excellent training on the wall saw for the team!

After a couple of weeks we noticed that our production time had improved from the old saw – as well as not having any down time meant we were really on top of our production and orders. The new machine has allowed us to fulfil orders quicker and without issue, helping us bounce back in style!

Super Deduction 130% Capital Allowance

Budget 202 Superdeduction

> Under the super-deduction, for every pound a company invests, their taxes are cut by up to 25p.

>This change makes the UK’s capital allowance regime more internationally competitivelifting the net present value of our plant and machinery allowances from 30th in the OECD to 1st.

What is plant and machinery?

Most tangible capital assets used in the course of a business are considered plant and machinery for the purposes of claiming capital allowances.

There is not an exhaustive list of plant and machinery assets. The kinds of assets which may qualify for either the super-deduction or the 50% FYA include, but are not limited to:

· Solar panels

· Computer equipment and servers

· Tractors, lorries, vans

· Ladders, drills, cranes

· Office chairs and desks,

· Electric vehicle charge points

· Refrigeration units

· Compressors

· Foundry equipment

A new 130% first-year capital allowance for qualifying plant and machinery assets; and a 50% first-year allowance for qualifying special rate assets.
From 1 April 2021 until 31 March 2023, companies investing in qualifying new plant and machinery assets will be able to claim:

> a 130% super-deduction capital allowance on qualifying plant and machinery investments a 50% first-year allowance for qualifying special rate assets

The super-deduction will allow companies to cut their tax bill by up to 25p for every £1 they invest, ensuring the UK capital allowances regime is amongst the world’s most competitive.

The government has offered unprecedented support for businesses during Covid. Even so, pandemic-related economic shocks and the accompanying uncertainty have chilled business investment. This super-deduction will encourage firms to invest in productivity-enhancing plant and machinery assets that will help them grow, and to make those investments now.

After recent changes from the UK Government withregard to Covid19, we are pleased to announce that after a number of months of being closed and being in lockdown, we are beginning the staged process of returning to work.  We have amended our working pattern and opening hours, however we are available on email at [email protected] or to call on 01916913044.

We have spent some time, putting new policies and procedures in place, in line with Coronavirus guidelines to ensure that our staff and customers remain safe at all times and that we can carry out contact free delivery, installation, training and servicing. Our main priority has always and will continue to be the safety of our staff and our customers.

Our staff are instructed to work from home where possible and will only enter the office to prepare our machines for delivery. New measures have been put in place for when staff are working out of the office to ensure that full social distancingis in place and that hygiene guidelines are followed.
We have also made it a company requirement for staff to wear PPE when attending a customer’s premises for delivery, installation, training or servicing. We request that upon delivery of a machine, the customer opens any relevant doors/shutters/unit and ensures they are as a minimum 2m away from our delivery team, or go inside until they are finished. Our delivery team will be wearing PPE, face masks and gloves to deliver.

The safety of our staff and customers is our number one priority and while we have implemented our own measures, we will also endeavor to support our customers with any procedures and policies they have in place.

Why Vertical Panel Saw’s are vital for small businesses post Covid19.

Why Vertical Panel Saw’s are vital for small businesses post Covid19.

From March 23rd 2020, the business world changed forever. Business owners were thrust into a situation that until it happened, could never have been predicted or prepared for. They were forced to close their doors, some not knowing whether they would ever open them again, while others tried to work within their measures, with limited staff.

Since returning to work, we have seen many businesses struggle with closed or delayed supply chains. These businesses have made a decision to bring their supply chain in house by purchasing a Vertical Panel Saw. This gives them more control, reliability and security over their supply chain and ensures they can have their materials cut on demand when their suppliers are closed or working at reduced capacity.

Purchasing a Vertical Panel Saw ensures your business has a reliable piece of machinery that can cut various types of material on one machine. An all encompassed machine will see you through the coming months and ensures your supply chain is reliable, when you now need it the most and will support you in moving your business forward. The most relevant benefit of our Vertical Panel Saw is that they only require one person to operate the machine, meaning that whether you work on your own, or need to furlough staff, you only need one person available to continue working.

Since lockdown measures have been eased, we have delivered machines to the NHS and seen returning customers upgrading their previous Vertical Panel Saws for more up to date equipment, after being so impressed by their first and second machines from us.

If you have been thinking of a vertical panel saw, get in touch with the team to see which new and approved used machines we have available to ensure you can hit the ground running and reduce limitations, Post Covid19.

Bounceback Loans launched to support Corona affected Businesses to grow after lockdown.

Bounceback Loans launched to support Corona affected Businesses to grow after lockdown.

Covid19 has caused interruption to many business’s over the last 4 months. Since returning to work, we have found multiple businesses’s using this down time to reflect on their business, plan for the future and in turn re-investing in the machinery that is required to re-open and hit the ground running with one less limitation.

On the 27th of April, Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak announced the Bounceback Loan schemes to help small business survive during this period of uncertainty. In comparison to a standard loan often used to finance machinery prior to Covid19, a bounce back loan offers a 2.5% interest rate against an average of 7.9% from a high street bank.

The versatility of a BBL, allows for a cash injection to ensure security and investment in the wake of this global pandemic. Unlike finance agreements, taking a BBL gives the flexibility to the business. With business’s able to borrow up to £50,000, the funds can be used for a multitude of investment such as growth, staff, product development and research, training, diversification and machinery.

With a low interest rate of only 2.5% and nothing to pay for the first 12 months, Sagetech Machinery Vertical Panel Saw would have paid off its initial cost, before the first payment leaves your bank.

During lockdown, we have heard many stories of our customers having the demand to remain open and profitable but have had to turn work down due to closures and blockages in their supply chain. The unreliability of a supply chain in this situation means that it is more important than ever to bring as many elements of your supply chain in house, allowing full control of your work schedule.

Purchasing a Sagetech Machinery Vertical Panel Saw will allow you to bring your sheet cutting inhouse whilst adding a depreciable asset to your business, reducing your corporation tax and giving you reassurance and security to bounce your business back after the pandemic.
