Van Finance

Best Ways Of  Van Finance  
At Swiss we have literally most funders on the market and will introduce you to the best value. Our aim is to help you grow your fleet 
and become your natural choice to replace vehicles. 
Van Hire purchase – VAT down and VAT deferred . HP is a great way to actually buy a van. If your VAT registered claim the whole VAT amount back within three months. 
Van Leasing 
Small deposits from one payment in advance to 50% of the van price. Its 100% tax deductible so great fir new start companies that have start up costs. Is the favourite way for many manufacturers so often attracts the greatest discounts. Its more flexible than contract hire. 
Lease Purchase
Not all manufactures support this method so often pre registered vans are the way to go. This is because you take ownerships automatically and they worry it will affect residual values. Ask us first as often you cant get a private plate on this method. Its very much like HP but more suited to VAT registered companies as they can claim the VAT back of course. If you are flat rate VAT this is the one for you. 
Van Contract Hire 
Great for larger fleets that want to control costs but its seldom sold to smaller users as its quite restrictive. Many ask for it because  they have asked for it in the past. Some mistakenly think there is no credit check check but there is. 

All prices subject to VAT. Images are for illustration purposes only.
