Whether you’re looking for a Hire Purchase, Finance Lease, or Contract Hire agreement, we can provide tailored advice to help you make the best decision for your business.

Tax Implications for LCV Finance and Leasing

Navigating the tax landscape for LCV finance and leasing is a critical aspect of financial management for UK businesses. At Clifton Private Finance, we’re committed to guiding you through the complexities to optimise your tax position.

  • VAT on Leasing: If your business is VAT-registered, you may reclaim 50% of the VAT on lease rental payments, irrespective of the level of private use. For maintenance charges invoiced separately, you can reclaim 100% of the VAT. This is particularly beneficial for businesses that utilise LCVs primarily for commercial purposes.
  • Corporation Tax: Limited companies can claim tax relief on the monthly finance payments for LCVs, which can be deducted from the corporation tax bill. The extent of relief may vary based on the vehicle’s CO2 emissions, with more efficient vehicles potentially offering greater tax advantages.
  • Vehicle Excise Duty (VED): For LCVs, the road tax is set at a flat rate, which is simpler and generally more economical than the tax rates for passenger cars. As of the 2023/2024 tax year, the cost is £320 for 12 months, subject to index-linked adjustments.

It’s important to note that tax regulations can change, and staying informed about the latest updates is crucial. For instance, changes to electric van taxes are anticipated in 2025, which could affect businesses transitioning to electric LCVs.

We provide expert advice to ensure that your LCV financing decisions are tax-efficient and aligned with your business objectives. Our team is here to help you understand the tax benefits and obligations associated with different finance and lease agreements.

Maintenance and Insurance for LCV Finance

  • Contract Hire: With this arrangement, we handle all maintenance and wear and tear, providing a hassle-free experience with predictable costs. This includes routine servicing, maintenance, and repairs, ensuring your LCVs remain in top condition.
  • Finance Lease: In this scenario, you’re responsible for the LCV’s upkeep. It’s essential to budget for servicing and any necessary repairs over the lease term. We recommend considering a comprehensive maintenance package to manage these costs effectively.

Insuring your LCV is crucial, and it must be covered under the company’s motor vehicle insurance policy. We partner with selected insurance providers to offer competitive rates and cover for single vehicles or fleets, including commercial and private use.

End of an Asset Finance Plan

At the conclusion of an asset finance agreement, you typically have three options:

  1. Return: Simply return the LCV to us with no additional payments, an excellent choice for short-term needs.
  2. Upgrade: Apply any equity towards securing a new LCV on a new finance plan, keeping your fleet up-to-date.
  3. Buy Outright: Make the final balloon payment to gain full ownership of the LCV, suitable for long-term use.

Each option has its considerations, such as costs, business requirements, and the LCV’s condition. We’re here to discuss these with you, ensuring a smooth transition at the end of your finance plan.

For tailored advice on LCV maintenance, insurance, and end-of-plan options, Clifton Private Finance is your dedicated partner. Ready to explore the next steps or is there another aspect you’d like to discuss?
