What is Business Car Leasing?

Business car leasing, also known as business Contract Hire (BCH) is a type of car leasing agreement that is becoming increasingly popular among businesses. With BCH, a business leases a vehicle from for a set period, typically between two to four years, and pays a fixed monthly fee for the vehicle's use.

BCH is attractive to businesses because it provides a cost-effective way to acquire and maintain vehicles without having to purchase them outright or finance them. The fixed monthly payments of a BCH agreement are often lower than the costs associated with ownership, which allows businesses to manage their cash flow more effectively.

Additionally, BCH agreements typically include road tax, and breakdown cover, which helps businesses reduce the costs and risks associated with managing a vehicle fleet.

Businesses can also opt into a maintenance package that will cover all routine servicing and MOT. Optional maintenance packages typically also include replacement tyres, as well as perishable items such as light bulbs and wiper blades. Your sales representative will be able to confirm exactly what is included in your agreement as it depends on which finance provider your agreement is with.

Business Leasing Limitations

It is important for businesses to carefully consider the terms of the BCH agreement before entering a lease. For example, businesses will be charged for any excess mileage or excessive damage, outside of fair wear and tear, to the vehicle when it is returned at the end of the lease period. Additionally, businesses will need to commit to the lease period, which means that they may be charged a fee if they want to end the agreement early.

In summary, Business Contract Hire (BCH) is an attractive option for businesses looking to manage their vehicle fleets in a cost-effective and flexible manner. BCH provides a way to acquire and maintain vehicles without tying up capital and enables businesses to upgrade their vehicle fleets regularly. However, businesses should carefully review the terms and conditions of BCH agreements before entering a lease to avoid unexpected costs or fees.

Business Leasing FAQs

Business car leasing refers to a financial arrangement where a business or company leases a vehicle for a specific period, typically between 2 to 5 years, by paying monthly lease payments. The business does not own the vehicle but has the right to use it during the lease term.

Business car leasing offers several advantages. Firstly, it allows businesses to acquire vehicles without a large upfront investment, as the initial payment is typically lower than purchasing a vehicle outright.

Leasing also provides flexibility, as businesses can easily upgrade their vehicles at the end of the lease term. Additionally, the lease payments can be tax-deductible, and businesses can benefit from fixed monthly costs and better cash flow management.

While business car leasing has its benefits, there are also some potential drawbacks. One major consideration is that businesses do not own the vehicle at the end of the lease term, and they may need to return it or enter into a new lease agreement.

Additionally, there may be mileage restrictions and wear-and-tear guidelines that businesses must adhere to. It is important to carefully read and understand the lease agreement to avoid any unexpected costs or limitations. We are happy to help advise what mileage you may require and assist you when your lease is due to be renewed.

In most cases, leased vehicles need to be returned in their original condition at the end of the lease term. Therefore, significant modifications or customisations to the vehicle may not be allowed. However, minor alterations such as adding decals or wraps for branding purposes may be permitted.

It is advisable to consult with the finance company beforehand to understand their specific policies regarding vehicle customisation.
