Finance Lease

Ideal for commercial vehicles with higher than normal wear and tear

Summary:

 

With Finance Lease, the vehicle is hired to you for a set period of time but there are no restrictions on how the vehicle is used or the number of miles driven.

Key benefits:

  • Tax efficient, with up to 50% of the VAT being reclaimed (for most VAT registered companies)
  • Flexible payment options, with lower monthly payments and a higher balloon or visa versa
  • On balance sheet accounting of the asset, with remaining payments appearing as a liability
  • No usage restrictions or wear and tear surcharges

How it works:

 

Finance Lease could be described as a hybrid of vehicle leasing and Hire Purchase. Although you rent the vehicle from a leasing company, unlike Business or Personal Contract Hire, there are no restrictions to the number of miles driven, or the way in which the vehicle is used.

At the end of the contract you can choose to pay a pre-agreed secondary rental, a one-off balloon payment, or sell the vehicle a third party. And, if the vehicle sells for a higher than anticipated amount then you could receive a percentage of the profits.
