0% Financing Up To £5000!
Take it away - 18 months!
We have some exciting news that could see you spreading the cost of a musical instrument over 18 months instead of 9 months with a new Take it away interest free loan!
The Arts Council have just added an extension to the Take it away
scheme to cover purchases on higher priced instruments from £800 to
£5,000 and to spread the cost over 18 months, completely interest free. Certain types of instruments can often be much more
expensive than others, even at a beginner’s level, so this has been done in the hope that this
new offer will be able to help many more people get hold of the
instrument of their dreams!
How does it work?
The new 18-month Take it away loan process will work in the same way
as the current 9-month loan, but you will be able to spread the cost
over double the amount of payments on instruments and accessories from
£800 up to £5,000. You'll still need to pay an initial 10% deposit at
the point of sale.
You will need to meet our customer eligibility criteria in order to
apply – so you’ll need to either be over 18 and using the scheme to buy
an instrument for a child under the age of 18, or between 18-25 years of
age and applying in your own right.
To be eligible to apply for a Take it away loan, you must be:
- EITHER an individual over 18 buying an instrument for a child under the age of 18
- OR an individual aged 18-25 years using the scheme to buy an instrument for themselves (or someone else, e.g. as a gift)
All applicants must also:
- Be a permanent UK resident
- Be working at least 16 hours per week
- Hold a bank or building society account capable of handling direct debit payments
Applicants using the scheme to buy an instrument for an under 18 will
be required to complete a customer declaration confirming that the
recipient of the instrument is a child.
Unfortunately we are not able to support applicants aged 26 or over who are not using the scheme to purchase a musical instrument for an under 18.
