Why Choose Car Finance for Business?

Learn how business car finance can benefit you.
1

Savings

It can help you save money on tax, maintenance, and fuel costs. Depending on the type of finance you choose and the type of car you buy, you might be able to claim tax deductions, benefit from lower maintenance costs, or enjoy better fuel economy.

2

Cash Flow

It can help you avoid tying up cash reserves or impacting cash flow. By spreading the cost of the cars over time with monthly payments, you can preserve your working capital and cash flow for other business purposes.

3

Choice

It can help you choose from a wide range of new models and features. With car finance, you can access a variety of brand-new cars that suit your business needs and preferences. You can also customise the cars your business needs with optional extras such as sat-nav, leather seats, or multimedia systems

How Does Business Car Finance Work?

Business car finance works by letting you borrow money from a lender to buy cars for your company. You then pay back the loan over an agreed term with interest and fees.

The amount you can borrow, the interest rate, and the repayment term depend on various factors such as:

  • The type of finance you choose
  • The value and condition of the cars
  • The credit rating and financial history of your business
  • The deposit and balloon payment (if any) you make

You can choose from different types of business car finance depending on whether you want to own the cars at the end of the term or lease them for a period of time.

Business Car Finance FAQs

Which Business Can Lease Cars?

To apply for business car finance, your business would normally be one of the following types of business: 

  • Sole trader

  • In a partnership

  • Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)

  • Public Limited Company (PLC)

  • A local authority (health services, social services, education etc.)

Can I Finance A Car Through My Business?

Yes, if your company is one of the above types of business you should be able to apply for business car finance.

It may be slightly different for a new business, as some finance companies will need proof that there are company funds available for the monthly car payments. Additionally, finance companies will sometimes require up to two years of trading history for the business.

Also, similar to other types of financing, business car finance will be subject to approval, often based upon credit checks.

Best Small Business Car Finance?

We have many business car offers available for small businesses, and some of the key business facts worth considering about business leasing are:

  • You are exempt from having to pay company car tax.
     
  • Business mileage is reclaimable, but personal mileage remains taxable.
     
  • Monthly lease payments may be reclaimable.
     
  • If you’re a VAT registered business, VAT paid on monthly leasing costs is reclaimable.

Our business development managers will be able to discuss which offers and vehicles will work best for your needs and budget.

Car Finance Business Expense

Your car finance payments could be a tax-deductible business expense, if you are a business owner or you are self-employed and using the vehicle for business purposes.

This means you could lower your taxable income and get relief on your car loan or finance agreement.

There is more information on capital allowances for business cars at HMRC. Please get in touch to discuss with one of our business development managers today.
