Leasing is becoming a growing method of financing vans principally because of its low cost upfront payments and its beneficial tax treatment. Traditionally businesses used to either buy or hire purchase to finance their vans however as people have got better educated about what leasing can offer the trend has moved this way.
In actual fact van leasing is made up of two products being contract hire and finance lease. With Contract Hire the lease is a long term rental and the van goes back at the end of the contract. The Finance Lease is more akin to hire purchase as the van does not go back and you have the option to sell the vehicle and terminate the lease or extend it into a secondary period. When you sell the vehicle you receive usually 98% of the sales proceeds less any finance outstanding so it is very similar to owning the vehicle.
In terms of tax benefit both leasing products (Contract Hire and Finance Lease) will take advantage of offsetting 100% of the rentals against revenue and are thus hugely tax efficient. VAT is charged on the rentals but can be claimed back if the business is vat registered. The VAT treatment helps keep the initial outlay low as you only have to pay vat on initial rentals rather than the whole van which as you can imagine is a big difference.
Many people asks how leasing works and in reality it is quite simple. Once you have found the van you want and have credit in place, the lease company will buy the van and will remain the technical owners of the van. You will pay them the initial rental on or about when the van is delivered and you will pay the ongoing rentals over the term agreed. If this is a finance lease structure which has a residual value (meaning that you are not paying off all the capital making the rentals lower) you will have a final rental to pay at the end. Generally, most clients will sell the vehicle which terminates the lease and uses the sales proceeds to settle the final rental. If its contract hire the vehicle just goes back.
