Buy or Hire?

Financial Benefits of lease purchase and hire purchase

The benefits of hiring

Feel the benefits of a more flexible hire plan and rent for a day, week, month, or year. Many of our customers find our long-term hire and service contract is a better alternative than buying.

Free up your cash flow

Contract hire agreements offer a complete package, and can include delivery, maintenance, servicing and repairs. In most agreements, rentals are 100% allowable against tax

How the customer can benefit from Contract Hire

  • Full package — delivery, maintenance, servicing and repairs are covered so no surprise costs
  • Easy budgeting to give you peace of mind over your cash flow
  • Deals are structured to your specific needs
  • Tax-efficient –100% of rentals paid are normally offset against taxable profits
  • Frees up capital for other investments
  • Off-balance sheet funding — equipment does not depreciate on your balance sheet
  • Improves your gearing ratio
  • Rentals are classed as a revenue expense on your profit and loss account
  • Unlike lease purchase, VAT is payable on each rental rather than in full at the outset, this eradicates the need for any large VAT payments upfront
