Buy or lease a car or company vehicle?

Understand the difference between leasing and buying  

Many businesses debate whether to lease or buy their cars. Where financial stability and minimising the risk of loss is important, leasing is a very popular vehicle financing approach.

Choose leasing and you can:

  • Remove asset ownership and depreciation risk;
  • Ensure known, fixed operating costs;
  • Provide cash flow certainty around a significant business expense, and;
  • Improve your balance sheets.

Know the benefits of leasing

Known, fixed costs Remove the hassle of unexpected cost spikes during servicing and other vehicle expenditure with a flat monthly lease rate.

Off-balance sheet As LeasePlan is the owner of the vehicle, you can remove the vehicle asset from your balance sheet to streamline reporting processes.
