Advantages of Leasing

What is a lease, anyway?
  • You agree to use a vehicle for a specified period of time.
  • You make monthly payments during that specified period of time.
  • You maintain the vehicle.
  • You purchase the required licenses, pay any taxes, and keep the insurance up to date.
  • At the end of the specified time, you return the vehicle with nothing more than normal wear-and-tear.

    Over the last few years, leasing has become the most practical method of acquiring vehicles. There are many benefits to leasing your vehicle. What is most important to you depends on your particular circumstances.

  • The Basics of Leasing

    Improved Cash Flow 

    Most people agree, the greatest benefit of leasing is improved cash flow. With no down payment and lower monthly payments, the retention of cash in business or personal finances can be improved. Reinvesting this cash into corporate growth or personal items that appreciate in value can return a much greater dividend.

    Lower Monthly Payments 
    Because you only pay for the portion of the vehicle that you use, your monthly payments are lower than if you purchase the same vehicle.

    Tax Advantages 
    There can also be some tax advantages for businesses to leasing. In certain circumstances, leasing may yield a more favorable tax result than a purchase. We suggest you seek the advice of your tax professional to determine what's best for you. There are also sales tax benefits to leasing. When you purchase a vehicle, sales tax is due immediately. However when you lease, sales tax is only payable on your capital cost reduction (down payment), and on the monthly payments.

    More Vehicle For Your Money 
    Because you are only paying for the portion of the vehicle you use, and because your monthly payments are lower, you may be able to afford to lease a more expensive vehicle than you could purchase.

    New Vehicle More Often 
    Because of lower monthly payments and defined lease periods, you can get into new vehicles more often.

    Manufacturers' Warranties 
    Many lease periods parallel the timeframes for manufacturers' warranties, allowing you to have warranty coverage for as long as you drive the vehicle.

    Choices & Flexibility 
    Shaw Lease is a flexible leasing company. By looking at all your options, we can analyze your specific needs and give you practical, helpful recommendations and solutions. Based on this information, we can design a lease to your individual needs.
