The Professionals Choice


What are the different types of funding methods?

For a full explanation of all available funding methods and options please select one of the finance explanation links on our website. These links will take you to a short explanation of the funding option. We would however suggest that you discuss the finance options with your accountant or business advisor prior to making any decisions on the desired funding method.

“Do I have to have a good credit rating?”

All finance methods offered are subject to status and acceptance as part of our finance broker services. We are required to provide the finance provider with information in relation to you, your business, residential address, affordability information, and supporting information, A credit search will be conducted by the finance provider via credit reference agencies and a decision provided. We work with a select panel of finance providers that cover all areas of business and personal finance. We can discuss your requirements as part of your enquiry and access your suitability based on the provided information.

I am not VAT registered so can I have a lease or a contract hire arrangement?

Yes you can. If you are VAT registered (Standard VAT) then you simply claim the VAT back as you are going along. if you are not VAT registered, you are able to not only offset the monthly rental and the VAT element you are paying too against your taxable profits – So good news for all.

However, If the agreement is a personal contract hire, you are unable to reclaim the VAT back against your business. Should you have any questions regarding this we would suggest that you speak with your accountant of business advisor. Contract Hire is only available on new cars and commercial vehicles at this time.

Are there restrictions for the amount of mileage I cover in my lease or contract hire vehicle?

All Lease and Contract Hire agreements can be tailored to your specific requirements or business needs. The same can be said about Personal Contract Hire. The mileage will be discussed as part of the enquiry and quotation process, This would be to ensure that this is set to for-fill your requirements.

Why does the monthly rentals increase when my mileage per annum increases?

The monthly cost of a Lease or Business or Personal Contract Hire vehicle is based on a calculation, taking into account:

  • The cost of the vehicle
  • The amount of Initial Rental paid in advance
  • The term of the contract (Ranging from  2 Years up to 5 Years)
  • The anticipated future value of the vehicle at the end of the agreement (Residual Value)

The higher the mileage that the vehicle covers during the contract has a detrimental effect on the value left in the vehicle at the end of the contract (Residual Value).

The subsequent monthly rental payments are then increased to cover the shortfall.

So in summary:

  • The higher the initial rental payment –  The cheaper the monthly rental payments.
  • The lower the annual mileage – The cheaper the monthly rental payments.

How many years can you lease/contract hire a vehicle?

You can lease or contract hire term any cars and commercial vehicles anything from 2 to 5 years.

There are occasions where shorter term agreements are available.

Can you Lease a Used Van?

Yes, We can offer Finance Lease agreements on used vans. The term of the lease would be dependant on the age and mileage of the vehicle in question. Each vehicle would be specifically quoted based on the term of the agreement, mileage per annum and amount of initial rental required. Unlike New Vehicles, A finance lease on a used vehicle will not include road tax for the first 12 months. The customer would need to tax the used vehicle themselves.

“Do you provide a warranty with Used Vehicles?”

All used commercial vehicles are provided with either the balance of the manufacturers warranty or a AutoProtect Level 3 12 month warranty. As we provide vehicles throughout mainland UK, The warranty provider we have chosen provides mainland UK coverage. Warranty coverage for non-mainland UK can be limited.

What deposit/advanced rental will I pay?

There are several deposit or initial rental options available for you to choose from for a Lease or Business or Personal Contract Hire agreement:

3 monthly rental payments in advance:

  • From 3 monthly rental payments in advance up to 50% of the vehicles value.
  • The higher the amount paid in advance will reduce the amount financed therefore reducing your monthly rental payments.
  • Contract terms are from 2 to 5 years.

One monthly rental payment in advance:

  • Some finance providers offer the option of a single monthly rental payment in advance. The rental payment would be equil to the proceeding monthly rentals for the duration of the contract. 
  • Contract terms are from 2 to 5 years.

Enhanced or Larger Initial Payments:

  • Some of our panel of funders offer the ability to accept a specific or tailored initial rental payment. This would allow you to tailor the agreement to suit your requirements. This can be extremely flexible to cater for part exchange vehicles and higher deposits/initial rental requirements.

Hire Purchase/Lease Purchase/Hire Purchase with Balloon Deposits: 

Hire Purchase/Lease Purchase/Hire Purchase with Balloon and all other types of ownership/purchase agreements require the VAT element of the vehicles cost to be paid in advance by the customer as a minimum deposit.

Some finance providers may request an additional 10 or 20% of the vehicle cost in addition to the full VAT deposit for the vehicle.

Would the vehicles servicing be included?

Adding a maintenance option to a Contract Hire/Personal Contract Hire agreement is simple and can be very cost effective; the additional monthly cost of the maintenance can be simply added to the monthly rental payment for your vehicle within the contract.

At present we are unable to offer Maintenance on Contract Hire or Personal Contract Hire on used vehicles.
