Finance Lease or Car Lease

The main features & benefits of a 'Finance Lease or car Lease' are

  • Is that you actually are NOT the owner of the vehicle of goods until the lease is actually paid in full.
  • This is because the lender / financier lets you as the customer to have full usage of the goods or vehicle, while the lender/financier retains the actual ownership until the lease is paid in full on a monthly repayment basis
  • With a Lease you also determine what the residual amount would be at the end of the lease term or agreement
  • Once you have the monthly repayments and you are left with the last instalment being the residual, you have the choose of either refinancing the residual amount for a further term of up-to 24 months, (depending on the lenders guidelines), or trading it in for a new car (and paying back the residual payment from the trading amount) or take ownership of the vehicle or goods, by paying the financier/lender the residual amount owing.
  • You have fixed monthly repayments, over a term of up-to 60 months and on a fixed interest rate
  • Leasing is usually used for sole traders, partnerships, companies and individuals, who predominately use the goods/vehicle for business purposes.
  • If you are registered got GST purposed, you can only claim part of the GST contained in the lease rental and the residual value in the next BAS statement
