Everything You Need To Know About Business Leasing at Flexed
At Flexed, we offer short term leases and long term rentals for both Business and Personal customers.
If you’re looking to lease a car, van or pickup or a fleet of vehicles to represent your business, we have a huge choice available to lease at Flexed from small city cars to medium hatchbacks, luxury saloon cars to coupes, estate cars, convertibles, crossovers and SUVs, as well as hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles (EVs).
We offer long term rentals from 3 months, 6 or 12 months on a number of select vehicles – the perfect choice for businesses.
Our Business Contract Hire (BCH) agreements are a risk-free way of providing your employees with a company car, as the cost, every month is fixed at the same price for however long you lease for.
We can tailor the best Business Lease deal for you based on what type of car or van you’re looking to lease for your members of staff, what average mileage will suit your employees and how long you wish to lease the vehicle or company fleet for.
Benefits of Business Leasing
Your company simply pays an affordable amount every month to allow for the use of a new vehicle which is then returned to us once your contract period has expired.
You don’t have to worry about depreciation in value or having to sell the vehicle/s on when the time comes – you simply have a fleet of impressive cars to choose from to represent your business and once the lease period is over, you can start again with the option to change fleet numbers and/or vehicle’s to keep up with your companies ever changing needs.
As well as saving on time spent searching for the right company car if you was to purchase outright, you can claim back 50% of the VAT at the end of your lease period if your company is VAT registered, therefore saving you money as well and if your lease car or van is used solely for business purposes only, you can claim back 100% of the VAT.
And because maintenance is included as part of a Business Contract Hire agreement, your motoring costs are reduced even further and simplified into one easily affordable monthly payment.
How to Apply
If you’re a sole trader, business owner of a limited company, self-employed, have a partnership or you’re a new start-up interested in Business Car Leasing, there are a number of things we require before you can start your leasing journey with us.
In order to be able to qualify for business car leasing, you must first fill in one of our Business Application forms which only takes around 5-10 minutes to complete.
You will also be asked to provide proof of address and proof of ID for the main company director, plus your business will be subject to a credit check to ensure eligibility for vehicle finance.
If your business is a Limited company, we will require confirmation of business registration details.
For new start-up’s that are less than one year old, we may ask for further information to back up your application such as 3 months’ business bank statements and audited accounts.
It might be that as a new start-up business or for someone who’s recently become self-employed, leasing a car or van might initially be best done through Personal Leasing, with the option to switch to Business Leasing once your company has been trading for more than 3 years.
Our short term car leases allow you to lease the vehicle of choice for a minimum of 28 days and after which you can simply return the vehicle, ‘roll on’ for longer or swap to another model or make with no extra charges to pay.
Once you’ve completed your initial 28 days, it’s entirely up to you what happens next – flexible short term car & van leasing that gives you full control without having to be tied into anything long term.
Also included as part of your lease contract is UK road tax, manufacturer warranty, breakdown cover and vehicle maintenance. All that’s left for you to cover is the insurance (must be a fully comprehensive insurance policy) and fuel, then you’re ready for the road!
And because we like it when our customers treat their lease car or van as if it’s their own, you can (permission granted) add company decals to your lease vehicle to advertise your business – these must be removed at the end of the lease period without causing any damage to the lease vehicle.
