This type of agreement is suitable for both business and private users who wish to acquire ownership once all the payments have been made. It is a pure funding method of spreading the vehicle purchase value over a pre-determined period. Part of the capitol cost of the vehicle may be deferred into a "balloon" payment at the end of the agreement based on the anticipated value of the vehicle resulting in lower monthly payments.
Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)
Designed for the consumer, PCP utilises the future value of a vehicle to reduce monthly payments. The value is then guaranteed based upon an agreed pre-determined annual mileage and period and allows for an option for the customer to either purchase the vehicle for this price or simply return it to the funder with no extra cost (subject to mileage and/ or condition). Service and maintenance facilities can also be included where required. At the end of the contract period, you have three options:
Hand back the vehicle to the finance company. (An excess mileage charge may be incurred if exceed the stated mileage).
Personal Contract Hire
Personal Contract Hire is designed to provide private individuals with many of the advantages previously only available to businesses. Again, service and maintenance facilities can be included in the monthly payment.
At the end of the contract, provided that the contract mileage has not been exceeded and the vehicle is free from damage, you simply return the car to the finance company with no depreciation or vehicle disposal risks and minimum hassle.
With Contract Hire, you can hire company vehicles for a pre-determined period at a fixed monthly rate with or without maintenance and servicing.
Contract Hire is a simple yet very effective solution and is a very popular choice with VAT registered companies who do not want the financial risks or administration and maintenance costs associated with purchasing and running their own company vehicles. It is also off balance sheet funding and up to 100% of VAT can be reclaimed on the rental provided that there is no element of personal use. If personal use of the vehicle is required then 50% of VAT can be reclaimed against your VAT liability. 100% of the VAT is recoverable on the maintenance element of the contract.
The monthly rental for Contract Hire, fixed for the lifetime of the contract covers the cost of the vehicle, depreciation and maintenance, recovery and replacement car (where included in the contract). It even covers the cost of road fund licence for the contract period too. All you have to do is insure it and put fuel in it and at the end of the agreement, provided that the contract mileage has not been exceeded and the vehicle is free from any damage, the hirer simply returns the vehicle to the finance company with no depreciation or disposal risks and minimum hassle.
Finance Lease works in a similar way to Contract Hire and again is a popular choice for VAT registered businesses that want to handle the administration and maintenance of their vehicles and have the asset shown on their balance sheet. You can run one vehicle or an entire fleet without any capital outlay.
A Finance Lease is a contract based upon a pre-determined period and simply finances the acquisition of a vehicle. A VAT beneficial finance option were the hirer can choose to pay the entire cost over the period of the lease period or pay lower monthly payments for the life time of the lease contract period with a final payment based on the anticipated resale value of the vehicle determined by the anticipated annual mileage. Finance Leases can be terminated early and offer greater flexibility although the hirer assumes responsibility for selling the vehicle to an independent third party at the end of the contract and provides the opportunity for you to benefit from any equity available.
