Every growing business needs an official vehicle, be it a car that the executives can use to attend client meetings or a truck that can deliver goods and equipment. When deciding how much to allocate, you have to evaluate the necessity of a vehicle in relation to the nature of your business. Factors such as credit rating, funding and vehicle acquisition, maintenance, and disposal costs should also be taken into account. Then comes the question of whether to buy, lease, or rent.
When it comes to the latter, Zurich discourages SMEs from cutting corners, such as reducing their workforce, because doing so creates a work environment where mistakes and accidents are more likely to occur. Instead, SMEs should adopt more practical solutions to save money, such as choosing one of the many business vehicle finance services offered by companies such as Credit Group Australia. Vehicle leasing, in particular, is a sensible choice if SMEs wish to reduce their vehicle monthly payments, tax bills, and other costs associated with operating a small business fleet.
In addition, vehicle leasing gives SMEs fewer headaches since their contract options can include maintenance services for them, allowing employers to simply focus on making money. Even a standard car lease can provide SMEs great opportunities for growth.
