Searching for a vehicle

You can find many business car contract companies listed in your local telephone directory or by going online. What to look for in a car contract company You will find that some companies offer a wide variety of models to choose from and run offers from time to time that might include free car accessories on specific models.

Read the fine print

Know all the legal and financial details of the deal before signing the contract. Leasing and maintaining vehicles You may lease your vehicles through the leasing company financial institution or your business’ bank. In such case, your financial institution will contact and make the necessary arrangements with the leasing company. Make sure that you know the terms of the contract, including car leases period, amount of driving miles per year, insurance coverage, and monthly payments. Maintaining your leased vehicles The dealer or leasing company expects you to return the leased vehicles in reasonably good condition. So, mechanical attention to the leased vehicles and unexpected repairs should be taken care of as part of the contract, if necessary. Negotiate a maintenance schedule for the vehicles and mechanical repairs not included during normal vehicle service, if necessary.

Leasing and your company taxes

If applicable in your country, your lease monthly payments will include the goods and services tax (GST). In most cases, the amount of GST that you pay is deductible from your company taxes. How much you can deduct and under what terms varies from one country to another. Check the current business tax code in your area for more information.
