Business Contract Hire is commonly referred to as vehicle lease and allows businesses a fixed payment method for the use of a vehicle for a term of normally between 12-48 months. The payments attract VAT of which for cars 50% and for commercial vehicles 100% of the finance element is reclaimable, 100% of the VAT for any maintenance payment is reclaimable. The rental payments are also classed as a true business expense so can be wholly offset against corporation tax. The benefits are fixed monthly payments with no disposal risk but reasonable care has to be taken of the vehicle and also there is an obligation to remain under the stated mileage at the contract inception or the finance company will levy a charge for loss of value.
A Business Contract Hire agreement is a long term arrangement which allows a business to lease a car of their choice. Whether that be Alfa Romeo, Mercedes or one of our other manufacturers. The standard time span for one of these contacts is usually anywhere between 24 to 60 months. After the contract is finished, the car just needs to be returned to the leasing company that you bought it from.
Business Contract Hire agreements are all calculated with a fixed monthly rental cost that is static over an agreed period of time, as well as an annual mileage limit. We try to be as accommodating as possible, which is why we allow you to customise both the agreement duration and mileage.
One of the things we focus on at New Car Deal is making sure that the agreement is accommodating to your needs. We make sure that you're happy with your agreement and strive to give you the best customer service possible. If you find that you have agreed to a mileage limit, but you require an extension, then this is not a problem. You can change your agreement so that it works to your new required mileage figure.
Tax benefits - If you are leasing a car through a VAT registered company, you can claim 50% VAT back on the monthly payments and 100% of the VAT of the maintenance agreement.
It frees up cash - If you lease a car instead of buying, you won’t have your cash tied up in a depreciating asset.
Something that attracts a lot of people to take out a Business Contract Hire agreement is the low initial rental. Compared to how much you could pay for buying a car, the difference is staggering.
When working within a business, costings related to vehicles can often be a worry. If you choose a Business Contract Hire agreement, it will have fixed costs which includes the actual leasing service, maintenance, servicing and even the road tax. Being able to plan how much you use a vehicle is crucial within a business, and fixed costings makes it so much easier. Any costings can be worked out well in advance before you even start using the car, so you will always be prepared. By saving money through car leasing, you use the money to invest in other parts of your business, allowing you to grow more and expand.
When you start a Business Contract Hire agreement, you agree on a predicted level of depreciation. Any depreciation that may occur will not compromise your contract. By not owning the vehicle, you do not have to worry about selling it on after your contract has ended. You can simply return it. Furthermore, in the same day as returning the vehicle, you can create another contract on a new vehicle.
