Contract Hire

Grey SEAT Leon Estate

Contract hire is ideal if your business prefers to hire rather than own. It is simply an agreement where a rental is paid in return for the vehicle over one, two, three or four years. It also relieves you of the time-consuming administration to selling it or worrying about its value in the future.

Furthermore, if you are a VAT registered business then a proportion of the rentals may be tax deductible. As contract hire is classified as an operating lease for current taxation purposes, it is regarded differently to ‘purchase’ contracts so that you may benefit from certain tax advantages.

Business and Personal Car Leasing

SEAT offers Contract Hire for both private and business customers, enabling you to drive the SEAT you love with no worries associated with car ownership.


What benefits does Contract Hire offer me?
  • Contract Hire is ideal for customers simply wanting to pay a monthly rental for the vehicle, change it on a regular fixed period and have no disposal risk
  • You won’t own the vehicle, just keep it in good condition and within your chosen mileage to avoid any additional costs when you hand it back
  • If you are a business user:
  1. A proportion of the rentals may be claimable as an expense against taxable profits
  2. An element of the VAT on rentals may be recoverable by VAT registered businesses
  • You can build in a service, maintenance and tyres plan to spread these costs making budgeting even easier

Once you have paid all outstanding rentals, you simply hand your vehicle back, subject to fair wear and tear and excess mileage charges.

  • Your rental payment period
    Choose any period between 12 and 48 months
  • Mileage per year
    Choose how many miles you expect to drive each year
  • Servicing
    Choose to include a service, maintenance and tyres plan in your agreement

Once you have paid all outstanding rentals, you simply hand your vehicle back, subject to fair wear and tear and excess mileage charges.

What happens at the end of my agreement?

Will I own the vehicle?

No, you are hiring the vehicle and will hand it back at the end of the agreement.
