- Traditional financing
Traditional financing allows you to spread the payment of your car. It has a minimum duration of 24 months and a maximum duration of 84 months, depending on the age of your car. You can determine the amount of the deposit.
- Balloon financing
A balloon financing plan allows you to make fixed monthly repayments over a fixed period of time. At the end of that period, there will be an outstanding amount of roughly 25% to 50%, which is also known as the ‘residual value’. There are two options at the end of the contract. You can either pay the residual amount and keep the car or choose not to pay the residual amount and return the car.
- Lease financing
With this type of contract, you pay a fixed amount each month to hire the vehicle. This car hire enables you to amortise the vehicle in your accounts. Furthermore, the lease contract also includes the option to purchase the car. The purchase value is determined when you sign the contract (the statutory maximum value is 15%) From a tax perspective, you can enter the vehicle on your balance sheet under tangible assets.
Advantages of lease financing:
Lease financing allows you to spread the costs and even stipulate the duration (36 to 60 months) that best fits your budget. It also means that you avoid having to pre-finance the VAT. In addition, the purchase option gives you the possibility to own the vehicle at the end of the contract.
- Hire purchase
With hire purchase, the residual value is explicitly stated when you sign the contract. The amount is greater than 15% of the investment, excluding VAT.
Advantages of hire purchase:
As with lease financing, you can spread the costs and even set the duration (36 to 60 months) that best fits your budget. From a tax point of view, this kind of financing offers the following advantages: no pre-financing of the VAT, you retain capital and credit lines at your bank, and you can enter invoices as hire costs in the profit and loss account.
