• Operating Lease

  • An operating lease works similar to a rental agreement in that you only pay for use of the vehicle, and it can free up capital that may otherwise be tied up with asset ownership.

    This provides a bigger return on your investments because the working capital is maintained in the business.

    Tax benefits may be gained from this type of lease as the rental price is tax deductible where the cars are used to generate taxable income.

    Another benefit is that the car is simply returned at the end of the lease. There are no resale value risks when the lease runs out.

    Budgeting is easier as you only have to allow for a pre agreed cost – there are no hidden maintenance issues to deal with.
