Personal Contract Hire *
Personal Contract Hire, as its name suggests, is essentially the same as Contract Hire but for private individuals. If you want fixed cost motoring, or have opted out of a company car scheme then Personal Contract Hire could provide you with hassle free motoring without the residual value risks associated with traditional ownership.
VAT is not reclaimable by private individuals. Maintenance packages are usually available at an additional cost so that you can have totally fixed costs for your motoring.
Contract Hire *
- Lower risk for your business - The vehicle is returned at the end of the contract, avoiding any depreciation or disposal risks.
- Improved cash flow control - Rentals are fixed, therefore you are protected from fluctuations in interest rates.
- Better balance sheet - You don't own the vehicle, therefore your balance sheet ratios may be improved and the VAT is reflected in lower rental costs. Your business will benefit from writing down allowances/lower rentals.
- Reclaim VAT - If it is for private use the VAT recovery on the finance element is restricted to 50% (although a proportion may be charged to Profit and Loss). VAT recovery on the service element remains 100% regardless.
- Protect your capital budgets - Contract Hire rentals are treated as a revenue item, leaving your capital budgets unaffected.
- Rentals chargeable against taxable profits - Rentals are chargeable against your taxable profits so it may be possible to reduce your tax liability, (restrictions apply).
- Replacement vehicles - Peace of mind, in the event of accident or breakdown replacement vehicles are possible.
Lease purchase *
Similar to hire purchase, lease purchase offers greater flexibility, with repayments structured around your business's cash flow situation.
After the initial deposit, repayments are made monthly and a percentage of the original cost of the car can be deferred to the end of the agreement, as a 'balloon' payment. A 'balloon' payment is a final lump sum, which is based on the car's estimated future value. You can make the balloon payment and keep the car - or part exchange it, using any surplus amount after making the final repayment, towards a deposit on your next vehicle.
