  Business Contract Hire (BCH) Case Study

Customer: Established Limited Company that is VAT Registered.

Requirement(s): Ongoing Replacement of a 20 vehicle fleet of cars and commercial vehicles.

Problem: The company have traditionally bought all of their cars for cash, however they have experienced issues with the disposal of their vehicles and find managing their own fleet very time consuming. In the past they have also experienced cash flow issues when it comes to replacing vehicles.

Solution: Yorkshire Fleet Management have worked closely with the customer to gradually switch their entire fleet to a mixture of Contract Hire and Contract Purchase agreements. This has meant that the company are running their fleet in a far more tax efficient manner, and are making significant cost savings. This process has also relieved the company’s cash flow, and has freed up valuable time within the company to concentrate on running their business.

Yorkshire Fleet will also contact them at set points approaching the renewal of each vehicle to arrange replacement vehicles.

Solution: Yorkshire Fleet Management have supplied the customer with a new van on a Business Contract Purchase agreement. The customer pays all of the VAT up front and claims 100% of it back on their next VAT return.

  Finance Lease Case Study

Customer: Established Limited Company that is VAT Registered.

Requirement(s): They run a fleet of 30 commercial vehicles for service engineers.

Problem: The company have traditionally bought all of their commercial vehicles for cash. Whilst they have been able to use their Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) to write down £25,000 worth of vehicles by 100% in year 1, the rest of the fleet is allocated to the Plant and Machinery Pool which is only written down by 18% per annum. The vehicles continue to be written down by 18% per annum even after disposal, which is far from tax efficient.

Solution: Yorkshire Fleet Management have worked closely with the customer to gradually switch their entire fleet of commercial vehicles to Finance Lease agreements. This has meant that the company are able to offset 100% of the monthly payments against taxable profits, and are now running their fleet in a far more tax efficient manner.
