It is very easy to confuse this product with a lease.
Lease Purchase is practically identical to Hire Purchase, the only difference being that instead of paying a deposit of 10-15% you typically pay a deposit as a multiple of the repayments. The remaining balance and interest is repaid in instalments. The number of instalments is defined by the pause.
As an example, a hire purchase agreement would have a 10% deposit followed by 36 monthly repayments. The equivalent Lease Purchase would have a profile of 3 payments in advance followed by 33 (if terminal pause) or 35 (if spread pause) monthly repayments.
Your eligibility for the VAT and writing down allowances is exactly the same as for hire purchase, and you can expect the fee structure to be the same.
Again, Lease Purchase agreements can be based on a fixed or variable rate, and the monthly commitment can be reduced by the inclusion of a balloon.
