Short, Simple, Clear Car Leasing


When you lease a car on a Contract Hire agreement, either for personal use (PCH) or through your business (BCH), the car or van you decide to lease will be taxed by the funding company for the duration of your chosen lease term.

The cost of road tax for the vehicle you lease will be included in your agreement and reflects the price of road tax at the time you take out your contract with us.

If the cost of road tax increases during your lease term you will be contacted and an invoice sent to you to cover the difference and vice versa; if the cost is reduced then a cheque will be sent out to you covering the difference.

You will receive notification through the post when your lease vehicle has been taxed, so you can drive happy knowing that you’re covered for the whole of your lease period.

When you take out a Personal Contract Hire (PCH) or Business Contract Hire (BCH) agreement, you never actually own the vehicle. The funding company remains the owner for the duration of your lease term and therefore they are the ones who will be the registered keeper of the vehicle and will hold onto the V5 logbook.

Not having to worry about remembering to tax your vehicle makes leasing a car or van with Clear Car Leasing an obvious choice for hassle-free motoring.

Of course, there’s so many other benefits too when it comes to leasing, such as the fact that your chosen lease vehicle comes with a full manufacturer’s warranty as standard, breakdown cover (may vary depending on the manufacturer), two sets of keys, free delivery and free collection at the end of your contract, the option to add a maintenance package for peace of mind, fixed monthly payments (which tend to be lower than the cost of a personal loan or finance to purchase outright) and not having to worry about depreciation or having to sell the car or van when the time comes.
