Our Representative APR (Annual Percentage Rate) which is the total charge for the loan including interest, is generally much lower than the finance offered by your car dealer and is currently set at just 6.4% APR, this means that the majority of our customers are approved at this rate (hence representative).

The APR offered upon acceptance however may differ slightly depending on your credit history and personal circumstances, this is now the same for every broker and dealer in the UK as new laws were brought in by the FCA in January 2021.

Each loan application is assessed by our lender on an individual basis, so it’s always a good idea to check your credit history first prior to making an application with us.

LEASE PURCHASE (LP)

Lease Purchase is sometimes referred to as Hire Purchase with a balloon and is structured in a similar way PCP, however unlike PCP there is no guarantee offered at the end of the agreement, customer can defer a capital lump sum amount until the end of the agreement, this is known as the Residual Value.

PCP CAR FINANCE (PCP)

PCP is one of the most popular types of funding a new or used car today, PCP allows customers to purchase a car of their choice at a fixed monthly finance payment, with a low initial deposit outlay and a guaranteed minimum future value (GMFV) at the end of the agreement.

HIRE PURCHASE (HP)

Hire Purchase (HP) is very similar to borrowing a sum of money from a bank and paying it back over a fixed period of time, with interest.
The term “secured loan” means exactly that, a loan that the lender can secure against an asset (in this case, the vehicle).

Hire Purchase is a type of secured loan which are often preferred over alternative (unsecured) loans.

HP gives you additional rights over those of a personal loan because it’s secured on the vehicle.

CONTRACT HIRE

Contract Hire is available for businesses and is basically a long-term rental agreement which can also include service and maintenance too.

Your monthly payments will be subject to VAT though as its a rental. If you are a VAT registered UK business you can reclaim this back from HMRC.

The monthly rental is calculated from the length of contract and the estimated annual mileage. At the end of the agreement period the vehicle is returned to the contract hire company.

Personal Contract Purchase

PCP allows customers to purchase a car of their choice at a fixed monthly finance payment, with a low initial deposit outlay and a guaranteed minimum future value (GMFV) at the end of the agreement.

PCP car finance may be particularly useful if you are a company car driver opting out of the company car scheme (Cash for Car), because you may be able to use your company car allowance or mileage reclaims to fund your monthly PCP payments.

Personal Contract Purchase may provide you with the benefits of driving a higher specification vehicle for a lower monthly payment. Unlike Hire Purchase agreements, this is achieved by deferring a percentage of the total cost of the vehicle until the end of the contract which is known as the GMFV, then at the end of the agreement the customer has the following three options…

OPTION 1

Return the vehicle to the finance company and if you have not exceeded the agreed mileage, there is nothing more to pay.

OPTION 2

You may keep the vehicle and simply pay off or refinance the outstanding Guaranteed Minimum Future Value payment.

OPTION 3

You can part-exchange your vehicle and if the trade-in value is greater than the GMFV, the difference is yours to keep.


Lease Purchase

Lease Purchase is sometimes referred to as Hire Purchase with a balloon and is structured in a similar way to Personal Contract Purchase (PCP).

The customer will normally benefit from a slightly lower finance rate with a Lease Purchase product as there is no guarantee offered at the end of the agreement, the deferred capital lump sum amount at the end of the agreement is known as the Residual Value (RV), and this has to be paid by the customer for outright ownership. Deposits for Lease Purchase are flexible and are normally a minimum of 10% and a maximum of 50% 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) 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 agreement and although this is not payable until the end. At the end of the agreement, there are realistically two options, 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 be refinanced again.

Key Benefits to 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.
