Business car leasing is a type of financing similar to car leasing. You are not the owner of the car, but you use it as the owner, pay only for use, and tax only your payments. When a company rents a car, it is called a lessee and the lender is the lessor. Renter and leaser names are on car insurance. In addition, the name of the leaser is also on the car title.
This is why the renter pays only taxes on monthly lease payments, not on the total purchase price of the car. It is as if the renter were renting the car and paying only taxes for the amount of time the car is used. On the other hand, when you buy a car using traditional financing, you own the car, pay it in full for the term of the financing and are taxed on the total purchase price of the car.
One of the goals of commercial car leasing is to allow a company to buy a more expensive car for a lower monthly payment. This is done by paying for use in a specific term. For companies, another goal of car lease is to classify car payment as an expense so it can be tax deductible. The same applies to car-related expenses such as insurance, gas, maintenance and repairs.
On completion of a car lease, the lessee has a few options. They can return or buy the car. If a renter returns a car, the dealer will sell the used car and generally make a profit from the sale. Meanwhile, the purchase price or the residual value of the car is predetermined at the beginning of the lease. This may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, but is usually 50 to 60% of the total price of the car.
One of the restrictive parts of car lease is that the lessee cannot simply sell the car to someone else. They must first buy the car from the leasing company before selling it.
Purchasing an advance lease usually results in some fines in relation to the payment of a traditional car loan. Alternatively, there are several websites that cater to lessees who want to get rid of car lease contracts by exchanging them or transferring them to someone else. This usually allows companies to avoid buying a lease or waiting until the deadline to return the car.
