Volkswagen PCP Car Finance - How does it work?
PCP Car Finance has become one of the best ways to purchase or finance a new or used Volkswagen today, personal contract purchase allows you to purchase any Volkswagen car of your choice at an affordable fixed monthly payment, with an initial low deposit and a guaranteed minimum future value (GMFV) or buy back at the end of the agreement term.
At Capital Car Finance we have the ability to offer our customers a very low rate of interest (From just 7.9% APR) together with industry leading GMFV's making Volkswagen cars very affordable.
Volkswagen PCP Car Finance is very useful if you drive a company car and are opting out of a company car scheme for example (Cash for Car), because you can use your company car allowance or mileage reclaims to fund your monthly PCP payments and avoid paying excessive company car taxes.
Monthly payments are fixed with PCP for the repayment period, which is normally two, three or four years and the added flexibility of PCP car finance gives you several options at the end of the agreement:
Option 1 - Return to finance company
If you think your Volkswagen is worth less than the GMFV you can simply return it to the finance company. As long as your Volkswagen is in good condition and has not exceeded the agreed mileage set at the beginning of the contract, you have nothing more to pay, the finance company guaranteed this future value and they will absorb any loss.
Option 2 - Keep the vehicle
If you want to own your Volkswagen, you can simply pay off the outstanding GMFV final payment to the finance company.
Option 3 - Part Exchange with dealer
You can part exchange your Volkswagen with any motor dealer for another vehicle purchase, regardless of whether it is an Volkswagen or not and if the trade-in value is greater than the final GMFV, this sum can be used as a deposit on your next car finance agreement, alternatively, you can sell the Volkswagen privately and keep any profit over and above the final GMFV.
Benefits of Volkswagen Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)
- Low initial deposit
- Flexible deposit term
- Fixed repayments
- Guaranteed final payment
- Low monthly payments
- Guaranteed equity available PCP
The Volkswagen personal contract purchase plan provides the benefits of driving a higher specification Volkswagen for lower monthly payments, unlike traditional methods of car finance, this is achieved by deferring a percentage of the total cost of the Volkswagen to the end of the contract, which is the guaranteed minimum future value or GMFV as its more commonly known as.
This guaranteed minimum future value (GMFV) and is the key difference between PCP and traditional forms of car financing such as Hire Purchase. The GMFV plus your deposit is subtracted from the selling price of the Volkswagen and your monthly payments are based on the balance (plus interest on the balance and the GMFV). Effectively, you will make lower payments than traditional financing simply because you are essentially only funding the depreciation.
At the beginning of the agreement, you decide on the total mileage you expect to do. If, at the end of the agreement, having chosen to hand your Volkswagen back to the finance company, your mileage exceeds the agreed level, you simply pay a fixed amount for every extra mile.
Wear and Tear
It is in your interest to minimise your Volkswagen's 'wear and tear' and not exceed the agreed mileage. When the agreement has finished, the vehicle may well be worth more than the GMFV, providing you with extra value, In simple terms 'normal wear and tear' means that for its age and mileage, the Volkswagen is in fair working order, condition and repair.
Volkswagen Lease Purchase - How does it work?
Lease Purchase is sometimes referred to as Hire Purchase with a balloon and is structured in a similar way to Personal Contract Purchase or PCP car finance.
The customer will normally benefit from a slightly lower finance rate with an Volkswagen lease purchase car finance product as there is no guarantee offered at the end of the contract, the deferred lump sum amount at the end of the agreement is known as the Residual Value (RV) or balloon, and this has to be paid by the customer for outright ownership of the Volkswagen. Deposits for Lease Purchase are flexible and are normally a minimum of 10% and a maximum of 40% of the total vehicle price, repayment periods are taken over 3 or 4 years typically.
The Residual Value (RV) (sometimes called the balloon) at the end of the agreement reduces the regular monthly payments accordingly, thus making vehicles that traditionally have a strong Residual Value (RV) like Volkswagen, more suitable for this type of product as they make repayments far more affordable.
The Residual Values (RV) is calculated and set at the beginning of the lease purchase finance agreement but is not payable until the end of the contract, there are realistically two options for an Volkswagen lease purchase at the end of the term, 1. Pay off the residual value in cash or settlement by part-exchange or 2. Some lenders will allow the residual value to be spread over a secondary period and refinanced again.
Benefits of Volkswagen Lease Purchase
- Lower deposits available.
- Cost effective rentals due to residual values.
- No tie to mileage contract.
- No lock in and settlement can be made at any stage of the agreement.
Volkswagen Car Leasing - How does it work?
New car leasing is becoming a very popular choice these days as it allows customers to drive a brand new car for a lower monthly payment and a small initial deposit, you don't have to worry about selling the vehicle either, simply return it to the leasing company at the end of the contract and walk away.
Car leasing is available for business and personal customers and is a long-term rental agreement, the contract can include service and maintenance, breakdown cover and a replacement vehicle and in most cases the road fund licence is included for the duration of the agreement. As car leasing is a rental agreement it will subject to VAT, if you are a VAT registered business you can reclaim this back from HMRC on your VAT return (100% for commercial vehicles and 50% for cars).
The monthly rental is calculated from the length of contract and the estimated miles driven, at the end of the period the vehicle is returned to the leasing company as the leasing company always the registered owner of the vehicle. It is treated as "off balance sheet funding" in a company's accounts.
New car leasing is completely risk free and almost always works out cheaper than outright purchase of a vehicle. This is due to the extra discounts and support received from manufacturers, which are passed on to the hirer and reflected in the monthly rental.
Contract Hire & Leasing Highlights:
- Fixed cost motoring
