Guide to Business Car Leasing

How Does Business Car Leasing Work ?

Business Car Leasing (also known as Business Contract Hire) is a great way for your business to get access to a car without the hassle of legally owning it.

To put it simply, it lets you lease a car for a business for a number of months and then returning it to the finance company.

 

What is Business Car Leasing ?

Business Leasing is essentially the same as Personal Car leasing with the key difference being you are leasing the vehicle on the behalf of a business rather than just for your personal use. 

With a business lease, the business will never own the car. They will have sole use of it for the duration of their contract.

Business Leasing can be useful because they reduce all the financial risks that come with owning a car. Additionally you access to the latest, high spec models at the start of their lifespan
 

 

Fixed Price Motoring

When you lease a car you know exactly how much your motoring will cost you every month.  Avoid extra costs, the leasing contract will include road tax, and can also cover servicing, maintenance costs, replacement tyres and roadside breakdown/recovery for a small additional fee – so no surprise bills

Deprecation

The most expensive part of motoring is usually the loss of value that your vehicle experiences over time, otherwise known as depreciation. When you Lease a car you dont need to worry about this at all. 
 

Hassle Free Returns

At the end of your Leasing Contract you dont have to worry about selling the vehicle privately or using it as part-exchange for your next vehicle. Instead you simply hand the car back to the finance company with no costs to pay or start afresh on another contract on a new car. This means you’re not tied down to a long contract and there’s very little long-term commitment involved. 

Is Leasing The Right Option For My Business ?

There are many benefits of leasing vehicles for your business, from VAT benefits to minimal repair bills, however there are also disadvantages. It is important to make sure you are aware of them and how they might affect your business in the future.

Pros

  • VAT benefits. If your company is VAT registered you could claim 100% of the VAT if the vehicle is solely for business use. If you also use it privately then you can still claim up to 50%.
  • Fixed monthly fee. You know how much you will be charged each month which gives you and your business piece of mind.
  • No need to worry about the decrease in vehicle value as you simply hand back your fleet at the end of the contract.
  • Minimal capital expenditure. Low monthly rental bills and low upfront costs keep your business capital expenditure affordable.
  • As the majority of leased vehicles are brand new they will be under the manufacturer’s warranty, so you don’t need to worry about any costly repair bills.

Cons

  • All vehicle leases are covered by a ‘fair wear and tear guide’. If you or your employees are reckless with the vehicles, it could result in your business being hit with a damage bill when you return your vehicles. 
  • If you need to terminate the contract early it can be expensive. You need to be sure that you can afford the monthly payments and that it’s worth the risk for your business.
  • All vehicles leased are supplied with a pre-agreed mileage. If your vehicle goes over this you will get charged for each mile you drive. This can end up being very expensive, so make sure you try to predict your mileage accurately before signing the contract.
 

Finally…

So why not Lease a car through your business, it’s available to financially eligible sole traders, partnerships and limited companies. Business Car leasing means your company can concentrate on its core activities, while avoiding the financial risk and administrative burden of owning your vehicle or fleet.
