  • Contract Hire Explained

    ŠKODA Financial Services has produced a new animated video that gives a clear, engaging explanation of how its contract hire product works.

    The video compliments the existing Solutions 'finance explained' film and features typical small business users in their working environments. A relaxed, informative commentary explains how the product works and the key features and benefits for customers.



    This could be right for your business if you'd prefer to hire rather than own cars. It's simply an agreement where a rental is paid in return for the vehicle over one, two, three or four years. This means you don’t have the hassle of selling the car later on, or the worry about how much it'll be worth. It could be better still if your business is VAT-registered, as a proportion of the rentals may be tax-deductible (putting a smile on the face of anyone in charge of business finance). There may be other tax advantages too, as contact hire is looked upon as an operating lease for current tax purposes, unlike a 'purchase' contract.



    Finance Lease

    Finance lease is a hire agreement which is specifically designed for businesses and it could be especially good if you're VAT-registered.

    You choose a hire agreement of between one and four years. When this ends, subject to meeting the terms of course, you can sell the vehicle on to a third party on ŠKODA Finance's behalf and you may get a rebate on the rentals.

    Being a lease, this is looked upon as different to a 'purchase contract' and could be better for you tax-wise. You can claim a proportion of all rentals as a business expense against taxable profits, the size of which depends on the price of the car you lease. Ask your financial or tax advisor to see if it applies to your business.

    Lease Purchase

    This is a cost-effective way for your business to own the car. The agreement can last from one to four years and lets you hold back part of the cost of the vehicle until the end. Then you could own it outright.

    Lease Purchase could be an even better option if your business isn't VAT-registered.

    These vehicles are tested according to WLTP technical procedures. Figures shown are for comparability purposes. Please refer to and use the fuel consumption figures marked WLTP and the CO2 emissions figures marked NEDC equivalent for comparisons as from 1 January 2019. These are the official figures for the UK from 1 January 2019 and until further notice. Avoid making comparisons using the fuel consumption figures marked NEDC equivalent after 31 December 2018 or the CO2 emissions figures marked WLTP before 6 June 2020 – these figures are not official after/until that date and are provided for information only. Only compare fuel consumption and CO2 figures with other vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. Due to more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions measured under the WLTP are in many cases higher compared to NEDC equivalent data. Figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. There is a new test used for fuel consumption and CO2 figures (known as WLTP). The NEDC CO2 figures shown however, are based on a calculation designed to be equivalent to the outgoing test cycle and will be used to calculate vehicle tax on first registration. Choice of wheels and other options may affect fuel consumption and emissions data. For more information, please see WLTP Info or contact your local ŠKODA Retailer.
