Business Contract Hire

A simple and cost effective way to fund any number of vehicles!

Contract Hire, sometimes referred to as an Operating Lease, is a long term rental agreement. Contracts can range from 6 to 60 months and are tailored to a business's requirements.

Advantages:

  • Extremely competitive due to Genus having preferential fleet rates and bonuses!
  • Minimum capital expenditure
  • Accurate monthly budgeting
  • Improved cash flow
  • Fixed interest rates
  • Rentals can be offset against the businesses profits. Cars with a CO2 output above 130g/km are currently subject to a 15% disallowance on the amount of the rental that can be claimed against the businesses taxation, for contract-hired cars with a CO2 output of 130g/km or below, there is currently no disallowance.
  • Reduced administration
  • On-going advice and support
  • Road Fund Licence included for the duration of contract
  • Optional maintenance package
  • Optional breakdown rescue cover
  • Optional replacement vehicle cover in event of breakdown
  • Optional GAP insurance which provides cover for the shortfall between the outstanding finance and the insurance value if the vehicle is declared a write-off by your insurance company

Disadvantages:

  • Early termination can be expensive
  • If you do more miles than stated in your contract you will be charged excess mileage for each mile over that stated in your contract
  • You must look after the vehicle and return it in a well-maintained condition. You will be charged for any damage over and above that stated in the 'Fair Wear and Tear Guide' which is available from all our Funders.
  • You must have fully comprehensive vehicle insurance

More Information on Business Contract Hire:

The Contract Hire Company reclaims the VAT on the original purchase, which reduces your monthly rentals (which are + VAT). Contract Hire is a very popular choice for VAT registered companies as they can claim back 50% of the VAT on the finance element for cars and generally 100% for commercials (subject to no private use, no exempt turnover and not being on the Flat Rate VAT Scheme).

On contracts WITH maintenance, the VAT on the service element is 100% recoverable. One of the major benefits is there are no disposal worries as the future value is underwritten by the leasing company. Another benefit of Contract Hire is that it is generally 'off-balance-sheet funding' (subject to legislation change) which means it can improve the business's gearing ratio (assets to borrowing ratio) and therefore possibly it's borrowing ability in the future.
