Taxi Finance and Leasing

Buying a taxi is a big financial decision that needs careful thinking. The price can be very high depending on the type, model and condition of the taxi. Besides the price, owning and running a taxi also costs a lot for things like maintenance, insurance, tax and fuel.

For many people and businesses, paying the full price at once is not possible. This is where taxi financing can help. By getting financing, buyers can pay for the taxi over time with a loan or a lease. This helps with cash flow and makes taxi ownership easier and cheaper.

There are different financing options to pick from, each with their own benefits and drawbacks. Loans let you borrow money to buy the taxi, while leases let you pay a monthly fee to use it without owning it.

With our help, you can find the best option for you based on things like tax, financial goals, and future plans for the taxi.

Here, we will take a look into the following topics:

Remember, the right taxi vehicle can significantly improve your income potential, and with the right finance or lease plan, it’s more affordable than you might think.

Tax Implications for Taxi Finance and Leasing

When it comes to taxi finance and leasing in the UK, understanding the tax implications is important. The type of finance or lease agreement you choose can affect your tax obligations.

In terms of income tax, self-employed taxi drivers can claim up to 100% of the monthly payments as an allowable expense against their taxable profits. This also applies to costs such as maintenance and insurance that are included in the finance or lease agreement. However, this benefit is reduced by the amount of private use of the vehicle.

Maintenance and Insurance for Taxi Finance and Leasing

If you are looking for a taxi for sale, you may want to consider the different finance and lease options available to you. These options can affect how you handle the maintenance and insurance of your taxi vehicle.

When it comes to insurance, you must ensure that your taxi vehicle is insured under your business name. The insurance policy that covers your taxi must be a taxi insurance policy, which is different from a standard motor vehicle insurance policy. This means that you need to have a valid taxi licence and meet the specific requirements of your local authority.

Choosing the right finance or lease option for your taxi business depends on your preferences and circumstances. It’s always a good idea to consult with a financial advisor, like us at Clifton Private Finance, or an accountant to understand the best option for your needs.

What Happens at the End of an Asset Finance Plan?

Typically, at the end of an asset finance agreement, you’ll have three options:

Consider costs, business needs, and the vehicle's condition to determine the best option. Discuss requirements with your asset finance provider ahead of time.
