I am about to set up as a sole trader in the Building Industry for which I will need to Purchase a van. Please can someone advise me of the most efficient method with which to make my purchase? I understand there are basically three main ways to finance a vehicle, Finance Lease, Hire purchase and Contract hire. Finance Lease appears to be the most suitable and affordable however I am unsure whether I will receive the maximum tax benefit as I doubt I will be vat registered for a few years yet.

Thank you in advance for your help.

It may help if you state where (which country) you plan to purchase this vehicle.

Its probably worth deciding on a few vans you are interested in then speaking to the main dealers themselves as they are the one's who will be able to tell you the prices/knock a few quid off.

James - I don't think Jonathan will be back to look at this thread. He seems to have recently found "water-fueled hybrids" and posting spam about them.
