Immediate cash injection – money is released as soon as an invoice is paid, so there is no waiting for 60 days or more for payment If your business registered for VAT, you can recover between 50% and 100% of VAT payments depending on whether you rent a car or a utility vehicle. If your business is not subject to VAT, you can spread the VAT costs over the duration of the rental agreement by incorporating them into your monthly rent. Loans can be arranged against asset purchases of $20,000 to $1,000,000 – no deposit is required, the purchase of VAT-financed leasing is ideal for organized companies that are good at managing fleets and finding the best deals. If you do enough research on the vehicles you want to rent, you will get a lot. However, not doing the right research can lead to your payment of balloons much more than the residual value, so remember that it`s not for everyone. Under the judgment of the Court of Justice in the Mercedes Benz Financial Services (MBFS) C-164/16 (see VATSC10172), certain contracts that may be called lease-sale contracts are processed for VAT purposes, which are considered rental and service transactions (not as deliveries of goods and separate delivery of credit). This is the personal purchase of contracts (PCPs) or similar agreements for which the contract provides for an optional material payment. These optional payments can be determined at different levels: the main difference between buying the lease and buying the contract is that instead of having the choice to buy the vehicle you have with the purchase of the contract, you have already entered into a contract to purchase the vehicle at the end of the contract. This contract is reserved for those who are absolutely sure that they want to take possession of the car at the end of the contract and pay all the balloon payments related to the contract. In addition, a deposit may be recovered by the supplier as part of the financing contract procedure. It will first be received by the supplier as a representative of the financial company, but will then be immediately “received” from the supplier as a partial payment for delivery to the financial company. Again, unless a basic tax point or a VAT invoice is availabe, a payment tax point has been created for both the supplier and the financial company. You will see from these examples that the effect of a prepayment is determined by the circumstances in which it is received.
For companies that are unable to make full or direct use of tax allowances (depreciating quotas), a financing lease reflects the cash flow benefits for reduced rents (tax deductible) It is only when the valuation is clearly at odds with market information that officials should question the method chosen. If in doubt, please contact the specialist motor department. Keep in mind that if the option is to be exercised at the time of the contract, it is the value that the entity could expect. Not as the open market value actually turns out when the option is exercised. Alternatively, you can pay for the unpaid balloon and operate the vehicle under a “peppercorn contract,” also known as a secondary lease.
