What are the commercial benefits of Leasing?

Leasing provides many benefits to your business such as:

  • Improved cash flow with minimal upfront payment and no requirement to pay the VAT upfront.
  • Fixed monthly payments with maintenance which makes it easy to budget for the cost of the vehicle.
  • Optional Maintenance package gives you peace of mind included so there are no increased outgoings when your vehicle needs a service or tyres.
  • Your vehicle is managed by us so tax renewed and CVRT booked (with maintenance).
  • At the end of the contract you simply hand the vehicle back.
  • Once the vehicle is returned in-line with our Fair Wear and Tear guide and within contracted mileage, there is no further payment required. .
