With a leasing product, the finance company buys and owns the asset the customer requires. The customer then hires the asset from the finance company paying a rental over a pre-determined period. With a Finance Lease, the rental is structured to the customers' needs and covers the full cost of the equipment. This can also include maintenance if the lessee requires inclusive in the rentals on certain types on equipment.
At the end of your lease agreement the customer has two options, either continue to use the asset by simply paying a nominal rental, or sell it as our agent and benefit from a proportion of the sale proceeds. The rentals on a Finance Lease are 100% allowable against tax in most cases.
Contract Hire agreements typically offer a complete package including delivery, maintenance, service and repairs. This not only offers the lessee a worry-free upkeep of the asset throughout the term of the agreement, it also means they know exactly what the expense for that asset will be, there should not be any surprises. Qualifying agreements are treated as off-balance sheet which means that financial ratios such as gearing and liquidity are not adversely affected. In addition, in most cases, rentals are 100% allowable against tax.
At the end of the primary period of hire, the customer will have paid for the anticipated depreciation of the vehicle and all the interest charged. The vehicle is returned to the finance company and the lessee is not responsible for the sale of the vehicle. If the vehicle has exceeded the agreed mileage then a pence per mile charge plus VAT will apply to each mile over the contracted amount. If the vehicle has not been maintained or serviced according to the manufacturers recommendations, or if the condition is worse than `fair wear and tear`, the finance company is allowed to charge the customer to compensate for the poor condition. These charges are outlined to the customer in the terms and conditions of the agreement.
