FAQs

Why should I lease if I have the money to pay outright for the van?

By taking out a finance lease agreement you benefit from

  • Bigger discounts on your vehicle
  • All payments including your deposit are 100% tax deductible. This is a more tax efficient way to buy than paying cash or on hire purchase.
  • Improved cash flow for your business as we only require a minimum deposit

What happens at the end of my Lease agreement?

You have 2 options at the end of the lease:

  1. You sell or part exchange to a third party. When doing this you will retain 99% of the sale proceeds
  2. You may continue to hire the van for another year for only £10 + vat

We recommend option 1 as this means you will be able to use your equity as a deposit for a new van.

Do all Leasing agreements have a balloon payment / final Payment?

NO! You can opt for a full payout lease agreement. However this will mean your monthly payments will increase.

Do I have to be VAT registered?

NO! In fact, if you are not vat registered a lease is still the best option. You will not have to put the full vat amount down as deposit andtherefore this willhelp with your cash flow. You will be spreading the vat over the agreement and the rentals are 100% tax deductible.

Am I restricted by mileage?

NO! On finance lease you have no restrictions on the mileage or condition of your vehicle. Only on contract hire do these restrictions apply.

Am I still able to fit accessories / put my sign writing on the vehicle?

YES! We feel that having a van sign written is a very important way to promote your business, we do recommend you use the stickers as they are easy to come off at the end. Also fitting accessories are vital for some trades for example plumbers like to have roof bars to carry pipes. See our accessories page!
