Financing your vehicles with operating leases

Learn about operating leases and their benefits

An operating lease works in a similar way to a rental agreement; you only pay for use of the vehicle.

Benefits of operating leases may include:

  • Frees up capital that would otherwise be tied up with asset ownership
  • Offers a bigger return on your investments, as working capital is maintained in the business
  • Offers possible tax benefits – payments are tax-deductible where cars are used to generate taxable income
  • Removes resale risks - cars are simply returned at the end of the lease
  • Makes budgeting easy - you only pay a pre-agreed monthly cost
  • Offers certainty around maintenance – no hidden maintenance issues to deal with
