Finance Lease gives you the advantage of running a fleet without having to purchase the vehicles. At the end of the lease period you would sell the vehicle to an independent third party and retain up to 98% of the sale proceeds.
This refund provides an excellent opportunity to fund the deposit of your next vehicle.
There is no large initial capital outlay leaving your capital free for more productive purposes. Fixed rental payments offer protection against inflation.
Compass purchase the vehicle of your choice, having agreed on the lease term, the monthly rental and a mutually acceptable residual value.
On termination of the contract, the vehicle can be sold, either by you or by Compass , and the proceeds offset against the residual value written into the lease. Should the proceeds exceed the residual value, you will receive the excess as rebate of rental.

Rentals allowable against tax.
For new cars and VAT qualifying used cars, assuming some personal use, the current legislation allows you to reclaim 50% of the VAT on your monthly rental against your VAT liability. The other 50% can be offset against taxable profits.
For non VAT qualifying cars and commercial vehicles current legislation allows you to reclaim 100% of the VAT, and offset 100% of the monthly rental against tax.

A residual value (balloon payment) can be included in the lease thereby reducing the monthly rentals.
