Contract Hire

WHAT IS CONTRACT HIRE?

Also known as car leasing, contract hire is a form of finance agreement whereby the customer hires a vehicle in return for regular monthly payments. This allows you the customer to hire a car or van for a set period and pre-determined mileage at fixed monthly rentals.

Ownership of the vehicle remains with the leasing company, as does all the administration, vehicle tax, insurance, and maintenance. 

Contract hire terms typically range from 24-60 months, although short-term car finance can be arranged. At the end of the agreement here is no option to purchase the vehicle and it is returned to the leasing company. Although, some funders may offer the option for the driver to acquire the vehicle at market value.

FIXED COSTS

Business contract hire agreements provide your business with known, fixed costs, which helps improve cash flow with just one monthly payment to budget for. For small to medium-sized businesses contract hire can be a great way to free up company capital that might otherwise have been spent on purchasing cars or vans outright.

REGULAR REPLACEMENT

One of the benefits of contract hire is the added advantage of regular replacement schedules. If you are a VAT-registered business, the benefits of contract hire are even greater, as you can claim back 50% of the VAT paid on the finance element and 100% of the VAT on maintenance.

ADDITIONAL SERVICES

Adding a vehicle servicing contract to the agreement eliminates the stress and responsibility of vehicle maintenance. Agreements can also include access to courtesy vehicles, ensuring that your workforce is always mobile. These services can be included in the contract or paid for as and when needed.
