D - Deposit

05 June 2006

Deposit - A deposit is often needed to secure a finance deal - for example, 0% finance may be on offer, but only after you've paid a 30% deposit up front.

A deposit can also be paid to secure the future purchase of a new or used car, or to join the queue for a future model which is likely to be in strong demand and short supply.
