Commercial Contract hire - Things you should know
Commercial vehicle leasing for a van lease, or even a fleet of lease vans, can offer your business a number of advantages over ownership. In a nutshell, commercial vehicle leasing can save you time, hassle, and best of all van leasing can save you money. When you lease vans with a commercial contract hire agreement you benefit from the reliability of new vehicles without the pitfalls of ownership. There has never been a better time to consider a van lease through commercial vehicle leasing.
Van Leasing with commercial contract hire
Van leasing (sometimes called commercial contract hire) is a great way to get vehicles for your business without being burdened with the hassles of ownership. In principle, commercial vehicle leasing is the same as renting a car when you are on holiday. With van leasing, you pay for the use of a vehicle for a specific time period. The different between van renting and van leasing is the amount of time you agree to use the vehicle with a van lease or commercial contract hire agreement. The time period for a van lease with a commercial contract hire company can be months or years. During this time you never own the vehicle - you simply have a van lease commercial contract hire agreement. There is also a small deposit required when you lease vans with commercial vehicle leasing.
How commercial vehicle leasing works
Let's have a quick look at how van leasing works. With car and van leasing the value of a vehicle is determined by its 'residual value', not its purchase price. The residual value is an estimate of the lease vans value at the end of the van lease period and takes into account any depreciation in the lease vans value. With commercial vehicle leasing the monthly payments for your commercial contract hire agreement are based on the difference between the retail price and the residual value. This means that you pay less than the full asking price of the vehicles when you lease vans. Instead, you are paying just the amount that the lease van depreciates during the length of the van lease. This is why the monthly payments for a van lease are so much less than with hire purchase. If you lease vans and cars instead of owning them you should be able to save money with commercial contract hire.
By using a commercial contract hire for your van leasing you are paying just for what you use - not for owning the whole vehicle. True, the company doesn't own anything when the commercial contract hire agreement for the van lease ends, but at least it's not paying for the van's depreciation.
Trade-in or buy when your van lease commercial contract hire agreement ends
When the commercial contract hire agreement for your van lease comes to an end you simply return the vehicle to the commercial vehicle leasing company. If you want to re- new your commercial contract hire vehicle you can opt for another van lease from the commercial contract hire company. The good news is that you won't have the hassle of trying to sell or part-exchange the lease vans, in order to get new lease vans - you just opt for a new van lease from your commercial vehicle leasing company. Commercial vehicle leasing makes using a car or van for your business easier with a simple van lease.
If you decide you want to buy the lease vans, some commercial contract hire agreements give you the option to purchase the vehicles from the commercial vehicle leasing company. At least you will know how the lease vans were used and serviced while they were used as commercial contract hire or lease vans and the commercial vehicle leasing company will usually give you a fair price for ex lease vans.
Van leasing saves you money with commercial vehicle leasing
There is no doubt that commercial vehicle leasing can save you money with every van lease. By opting to lease vans, rather than own them, you can take advantage of the cost efficiency of commercial vehicle leasing. With a van lease you will have lower monthly commercial vehicle leasing payments. With van leasing, your monthly payments are just for the commercial vehicle leasing which is usually less than the monthly payments for vehicle ownership, so van leasing makes financial sense.
Don't get hit by depreciation - lease vans with commercial contract hire
A new van depreciates as soon as it is driven away from the showroom. But with van leasing you don't get hit by the depreciation, as you only van lease. With van leasing, you get all the advantages of running a brand new van, but you are not exposed the depreciation in its value when you lease vans.
If you usually replace your van every three years, commercial vehicle leasing and van lease really makes sense. Why own and pay for vans, when you can just pay for what you use when you lease vans?
With a van lease and commercial contract hire you can recoup some of the VAT
The tax structure in the UK tends to favours commercial contract hire as a mechanism for companies to use business vehicles. For example, if you lease vans for purely business purposes then you can claim up to 100% of the VAT on your monthly van leasing payments. Even if you use a commercial contract hire company to lease vans which are sometimes used for private purposes you can still reclaim 50% of the VAT on the van leasing payments. And, you can claim 100% of the VAT on the costs of any maintenance packages you have as part of your van leasing agreement.
Other ways to reduce your tax bill with a van lease
In some cases, you may be able to deduct your company's monthly commercial contract hire payments for the van leasing from the business' taxable income. Usually, commercial contract hire payments are deducted in full during the tax year in which they are incurred. So, for example, a higher rate taxpayer (40%) who is a sole-trader or a limited company can claim back 40% of his commercial contract hires payments from his tax bill. Van leasing can be the quickest way to get tax relief on a business vehicle, and is why so many accountants recommend commercial contract hire for companies as van leasing can be cost effective.
The cash flow benefits of commercial vehicle leasing
Van leasing can help businesses improve their cash flow by reducing and dispersing their VAT liability. If you buy a van (either with cash or by hire purchase) the VAT is due on the vehicle straightaway and the more expensive the van, the more you need to pay in VAT. However, when you lease vans you only pay VAT on the initial deposit of your van lease. At Freedom Commercial the deposits with our commercial contract hire agreements for a car or van leasing are a small % of the vehicle's value or monthly payments. Obviously, you will still need to pay VAT on the monthly commercial contract hire agreement payments, but if you are registered for VAT this can be reclaimed in the normal way when you lease vans. Even if you are not registered for VAT, commercial vehicle leasing can be of benefit because of the cost efficiency of van leasing vs ownership.
