What are the different types of funding methods?

For a full explaination of all available funding methods and options please select one of the links on the right hand side menu of the website.

These links will take you to a short explaination 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.

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

Yes you can. If you are VAT registered 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 but 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. Whould you have any questions regarding this we would suggest that you speak with your accountant of business advisor.

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 forfill your requirments.

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 inital 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 occassions where shorter term agreements are available.

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 amount paid in advance will reduce the amount financed therfore 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 requirments. This can be extremly flexible to cater for part exchange vehicles and higher deposits/initial rental requirments.

Hire Purchase/Lease Purchase Deposits: 

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