Contract hire is ideal if your business prefers to hire rather than own. It is simply an agreement where a rental is paid in return for the vehicle over one, two, three or four years. It also relieves you of the time-consuming administration to selling it or worrying about its value in the future.
Furthermore, if you are a VAT registered business then a proportion of the rentals may be tax deductible. As contract hire is classified as an operating lease for current taxation purposes, it is regarded differently to ‘purchase’ contracts so that you may benefit from certain tax advantages.
