Buying vs Leasing: Which is the best option?

Deciding on whether to buy or lease a vehicle depends on your financial situation and needs. While leasing might allow you to upgrade your vehicle every 2-3 years, buying the car can come with the added benefit of owning outright from the start. Weighing out the pros and cons all boils down to what each option can do for you, and whether it will be value for your money. You can speak to a financial consultant who will help you get a clearer picture of what solution will suit you.

Consider the ongoing costs of a loan

Not all loans are created equal. Loans have various features that can affect how much you will pay in your monthly repayments. Commercial financing can be tailored to suit your needs. Loan products that are used to finance commercial utilities come with ongoing fees such as; monthly fees, account keeping fees, documentation fees, exit fees, and application fees that need to be considered. The cost of these fees shows if a loan is manageable or will cripple your finances.

Potential tax benefits

You can make a claim an immediate tax deduction on a vehicle under $20,000 if you operate a business that has a turnover of $10 million. There are other potential tax benefits that you can claim such as; picking up or delivering goods, travelling to business meetings, and travelling from your home to another workplace to name a few. If you bought your vehicle through chattel mortgage you get a tax incentive when buying your vehicle as an input tax credit.

Should you go with 0% finance?

0% van financing might sound appealing at first, but keep in mind that you will have to make up for the cost in other ways. 0% financing can come with terms that can push the price of the van up or cause your loan to have less flexible repayment plans. One thing to keep in mind is that this type of financing can become expensive over the life of the loan. The application process can be stricter when it comes to your credit score. If you don't have a good credit score you could be rejected.
