Business Contract Hire (BCH) Made Easy at Clear Car Leasing


Your business doesn’t necessarily have to be VAT registered before taking out a Business Contract Hire (BCH) agreement on a lease car, however if you can’t claim the VAT back, you will still have to pay the VAT.

Business contract hire is available to financially eligible Limited Companies, Sole Traders and Partnerships.

If your business does register for VAT, then you could claim back 50% of the VAT on your lease car, making it a much cheaper option than it already is.

If your company decides to lease a car through a BCH agreement, then you must pay the fixed monthly rental payments for the duration of your chosen lease term.

At the end of the contract, the lease car is inspected, collected and returned to us, allowing you to start again with a brand new lease car and agreement.

Do I Have To Be VAT Registered Before Taking Out A Business Contract Hire Agreement?


Contract hire enables you to concentrate on running your business without having to worry about depreciation of a vehicle and selling it on when the time comes.

All of our lease cars come with a full manufacturer’s warranty as standard, road tax for the duration of your lease term and two sets of keys. Breakdown cover is included but may vary depending on the manufacturer chosen.

You can even add a maintenance package to your BCH agreement to help spread the cost and give you peace of mind.

Before the start of your contract a mileage allowance is chosen by you. Only if you exceed your agreed annual mileage allowance will you incur any extra charges at the end of your contract.
