HP Helps Small Businesses Survive and Thrive with Zero Percent Financing Promotions


PALO ALTO, Calif., HP today announced zero percent financing promotions that make it simple and affordable for small businesses to continue investing in the technology that can help them increase efficiency and grow their businesses.

Offered through HP Financial Services, the company’s asset management services and leasing subsidiary, the two promotions provide customers the choice to either lease or own products.

The zero percent 12-month promotion plan allows small businesses to invest in new technology while managing cash flow. At the end of the 12-month term, the equipment can be purchased for one dollar. The zero percent 36-month lease offer provides a fair market value purchase option at the end of the lease term.(1)

Both financing plans allow customers in the United States to finance between $1,500 and $150,000 worth of products from HP’s broad portfolio. Canadian customers can finance from CDN$5,000 to CDN$150,000 worth of products. Available through April 30, 2009, in the United States and Canada, full details for both offers are available at
