CONTRACT HIRE

We'll agree a plan of fixed monthly rentals lasting from one year to four years. It’s a great way of fixing your monthly vehicle costs without the hassle of owning a car. We can regulate your cash flow further by integrating the cost of servicing, maintenance and tyres into your rental payments - and your business could recover the VAT on these elements.

You’ll need to put down an initial rental - a bit like a deposit - at the beginning of the agreement. At the end of the contract you simply hand the car back, subject to mileage and vehicle condition, and start a new agreement on the latest new ŠKODA.

FINANCE LEASE

Finance Leasing allows you to pay the entire cost of the vehicle (including) interest, or reduce your monthly rental costs by offsetting a balloon payment until the end based on its anticipated future value.

It’s an alternative for businesses for whom Contract Hire isn’t appropriate, and it allows you to list your vehicle(s) on your balance sheet. Your monthly payments are fixed for the duration of the contract, and it requires no large upfront payment.

If you are a VAT-registered business you may be able to reclaim up to 50 percent of the rentals as business expenses, which make it popular with sole traders, self-employed people, limited companies and partnerships. If you’re not VAT-registered, this cost is spread over your monthly payments.

LEASE PURCHASE

Lease Purchase lets you lower your monthly payments, compared to Hire Purchase, by deferring a proportion of the vehicle cost to the end of the agreement. When the agreement is over, you can pay the balance off or part-exchange against a new vehicle.

Lease Purchase is great for small businesses that want to keep control of their cash flow, meaning they have the option to change vehicles more frequently.
