We offer Commercial Car Lease for businesses seeking an off-balance sheet finance option for the purchase of motor vehicles. Leasing is available for a single vehicle or an entire fleet of cars to be used for business purposes. In simple terms, the lender purchases the vehicle, leases it back to you for a set monthly payment. The borrower has full use of the car during the term of the financial lease while the lender holds the title of ownership.
While the lender holds ownership, the car is not entered on the borrower’s balance sheet as an asset/liability. The balance sheet shows the monthly lease payments as an operating expense. When the borrower finalises all payments including the residual, ownership is transferred from lender to borrower. Your accountant or financial controller is best placed to advise if leasing is the best guaranteed car finance product for your business structure.
Car leasing is available for new and used motor vehicles purchased through a dealer, from a private seller or at auction.
