Hire Purchase

The traditional method of owning a vehicle.

 The deposit for the vehicle can be any amount, although the minimum of all the VAT on the purchase price must be paid. The larger the deposit, the lower the amount you borrow overall. Repayments on the vehicle can be over a period of 12 months, up to 60 months. All monthly repayments are VAT free as the VAT on the vehicle has already been paid for via the deposit. 100{0775cd81be1c4435c6a77ded2626a9e3dad11aed0caeba0095b301cbb7d19144} of this VAT deposit is reclaimable for all VAT registered customers and 100{0775cd81be1c4435c6a77ded2626a9e3dad11aed0caeba0095b301cbb7d19144} of the interest charges can be offset against taxable profits. The vehicle itself is an asset on your balance sheet and benefits from writing down allowances and finally at the end of the contract period, the vehicle is 100{0775cd81be1c4435c6a77ded2626a9e3dad11aed0caeba0095b301cbb7d19144} owned by you.
