What is car leasing in a nutshell?
As mentioned in many sections of our car leasing forum, car leasing is like hiring a car, the car registration will be in your name, you insure the car like any other car and look after it like as if it was yours to keep. The car technically is not yours to sell, not until you pay it off totally which would be at the end of the lease period.
We call this the balloon payment.
The main difference from hiring and leasing, before the end date is due to return the car
with leasing you
have to buy the car, you have the option to give the car back,
or walk away
and pay nothing more. Most people prefer to give it back and lease another car. This way you always avoid buying the car and paying the balloon payment, but just keep leasing it.
If there is equity in the car you
leased because either you kept it in a fairly good condition, drove less miles
than you stated or it hasn't depreciated as expected, then you will have extra money to put
down as a deposit for your next car lease.

Car Leasing Finance options explained
Personal Contract Hire
Personal Contract Hire (PCH) has been specifically designed for people opting out of a company car scheme or joining a new company that provides a company car allowance, instead of a company car. A PCH contract includes road fund licence and, if required, service and maintenance. Rental periods typically vary between 24 and 48 months, there is no large initial payment to be made as deposits are usually equivalent to 3 or 6 months rental. At the end of a contract the vehicle is returned to the lender at the agreed contract mileage with no final or balloon payment to be made. If the mileage on the vehicle at the end of the contract is higher than the contracted mileage then there will be an excess mileage charge to pay. This is typically 5p - 10p per mile.
Personal Contract Purchase
Purchase Personal contract purchase (PCP) is available to everyone, subject to status. PCP provides a new or used vehicle for a pre-determined period, normally 24 - 48 months. Like contract hire the contract has a low initial payment, usually 3 monthly payments, followed by fixed payments for an agreed period with an agreed mileage. At the end of the contract period there is a guaranteed future value that you have the option of paying to take ownership of the vehicle, or you can hand back the car to the finance company without penalty.
Hire purchase is a simple, straightforward way to spread the cost of buying a new car. It is fixed rate finance - with a fixed monthly payment. The deposit you pay is flexible - from as little as £99. The remaining balance, plus fixed interest, is repaid in equal instalments over an agreed period (12-60 months). There
are also 0% deposit offers
available for certain cars and 0% deposit finance
for most cars, subject to approval.
Lease Purchase is essentially Hire Purchase with a balloon payment at the end of the contract. Lease Purchase offers lower monthly payments than normal hire purchase. Instead, at the end of the agreement, you can make a final lump sum payment (or 'balloon') to own your car.
It's fixed rate finance - but with a lower fixed monthly outlay since you defer repayment of some of the borrowing. At the end of the agreement options include car purchase, refinance, part exchange or resale. The deposit you pay is flexible - from as little as £99. The remaining balance, plus fixed interest, is repaid in equal instalments over an agreed period (12-60 months) plus a final balloon payment.
Contract hire is a vehicle leasing contract for sole traders, partnerships, limited companies and PLCs. The Hirer benefits by paying a single fixed rental each month. This includes road fund licence in most cases and, if required, service and maintenance. Rental periods typically vary between 18 and 48 months, there is no large initial payment to be made as deposits are usually equivalent to 3 or 6 months rental. VAT is payable on rentals but is partially reclaimable by VAT registered businesses. At the end of a contract the vehicle is returned to the lender at the agreed contract mileage with no final or balloon payment to be made. If the mileage on the vehicle at the end of the contract is higher than the contracted mileage then there will be an excess mileage charge to pay. This is typically 5p - 10p per mile. For details of Finance Lease & Contract Purchase please contact this office.
Finance lease is a financing option available to businesses only. It allows payment of the entire cost of the vehicle over the life of the contract with or without a final 'balloon' payment. At the end of the agreed term and after the balloon payment (if applicable) has been paid, you can either, continue to use the vehicle by paying an annual 'peppercorn' rental or, sell the vehicle to a third party and retain 98% of the proceeds of sale. The remaining 2% must be paid to the finance company. This type of finance is often attractive to the building and construction industry as there is no damage re-charge at the end of the contract and no mileage restrictions although a higher mileage will affect the residual
value if the contract incorporates a 'balloon' payment. Contact us for further details.
Non Status/Sub Prime Contracts
These are available for new start companies and businesses or individuals that have experienced credit problems in the past. Initial payments are typically 6 times the monthly rental.
Sale And Leaseback
If your company already has vehicles that have been purchased in the past, we can arrange for a finance company to buy the vehicles off you to give a capital injection to the business. The vehicles would then be leased back to you at competitive rates. This would be subject to age, mileage and value of the vehicles concerned.
