Welcome to Oaklease Blog

The OakLease blog is both the longest established equipment leasing blog on the web, and by far, the most read. It will cover both equipment leasing and equipment finance in the UK as well as in Europe. We do endeavour to avoid any financial jargon, and we hope that it is as if we are chatting to each other, over a drink in the bar. We are just like you, real people in the real world!
