Hire Purchase and Leasing
Hire purchase and leasing are normally associated with equipment financing or equipment refinancing. They differ in two ways:
A. VAT is payable on all leasing instalments to include, the initial payment/down payment, the instalments in both the primary and secondary periods, and the sale proceeds on disposal plus the rebate of rentals. There is no VAT on hire purchase – it is zero-rated.
B. Title, leased equipment remains in the name of the finance company and therefore the finance company is responsible for paying the VAT. The primary period of lease is continued by a secondary period of usually a nominal annual instalment. Therefore, title never passes to the lessee. Disposal of the assets is only available to an independant third party.
Leased assets can now be included on the balance sheet – determined strictly in accordance with the individual terms and conditions under the lease agreement.
In the case of hire purchase, title remains with the borrower throughout. All allowances, where applicable, can be claimed and the assets are entered in the usual way on the Year End Accounts Inventory of Assets.
If you are considering a capital equipment purchase, please contact this office for a quotation. Similarly, if you have unencumbered assets and experience pressure on the cash flow, please allow us to make a proposal of how our products may be of assistance to your organisation.
In the event that a business has a borrowing need and its bankers, investors or directors feel that they cannot assist, we can write a Loan Note to the company, partnership or sole trader.
