How does business car leasing work?

Whether you’re an SME, a sole trader, a partnership or a limited company, business leasing is a long-term vehicle rental solution ideal for companies of all sizes.

If you’re looking for car leasing for your business, for a fixed monthly rental and low initial outlay, you can drive away in a brand-new vehicle with minimal capital expenditure. At the end of the contract, you simply return the vehicle without worrying about depreciation or disposal – it’s a choice that can have several long-term benefits.

What’s more, business car leasing offers significant tax advantages and removes the financial risk and administrative burden of owning your vehicle or fleet.

What is business contract hire?

Business contract hire (BCH) is our most popular rental agreement for businesses, suited for sole traders, partnerships and limited companies.

With business contract hire, VAT registered companies can claim back up to 100% VAT for the supply of the vehicle. Contract hire also removes depreciating assets from your company’s balance sheet, and the associated risks of owning vehicles, such as vehicle disposal.

What is a finance lease agreement?

Finance lease is a great lease solution for when business contract hire isn’t a viable option. It offers flexibility and positive tax implications, making it ideal for companies who require vehicles but don’t have the funds to pay for them upfront.

With finance lease, you can opt to pay for lower monthly rentals and then a final payment based on the expected resale value of the vehicle (balloon payment).

What type of company are you?

How many years have you been trading for?

How many years have you been trading for?

Businesses trading for under two years may find it difficult to obtain vehicle finance. This is because it is difficult for the finance provider to objectively gain insight into the business and the potential lending risks involved. New businesses may be required to submit 3 months business bank statements, management accounts (if available) and a director's guarantee (ltd companies only) to support your finance application. In some cases, a larger initial rental may also be required.
