Contract Hire

Danske Bank Asset Finance offers Contract Hire - an increasingly popular way of financing cars, light commercial vehicles, forklift trucks, access lifts/platforms - in association with contract hire specialists who will also manage your asset for you if you choose.

Fleet management services are tailored to each customer and can include road fund licensing, scheduled servicing, maintenance, replacement tyres or even arranging membership of one of the motoring organisations.

How does Contract Hire work?

  • Tax relief available on rental payments
  • The hire of the vehicle is for an agreed term and at the end of the period the finance company or the Contract Hire company disposes of it.
  • You never actually own the vehicle as ownership remains with the finance company throughout the agreement.
  • No heavy initial outlay or unforeseen operating cost.
  • Possible VAT recovery on monthly payments.

Things you need to know

  • Whether we provide credit depends on your circumstances, and you must be 18 or over. Lending terms and conditions apply.
  • The rate and term at which we lend will reflect our assessment of the circumstances of your business, the chosen loan amount and the loan purpose. Written quotations are available on request.
