It is absolutely true fact that in the event your business greatly relies on cars or vans it is natural that you need to find some. In the case you need vehicles for your daily business services and you are searching for some possibility to expand then auto leasing is the solution to opt for in order to maximize the business benefits and profitability.

The Tax Related Advantage
It goes without any objection that it is a smart idea to start with the most popular advantage for businesses which are tax benefits. If you choose the option of car leasing you are sure to enjoy the VAT advantages. The truth is that the great majority of vehicle leasing organizations can actually reclaim the VAT off the automobiles or vans they offer. In this event costs will considerably go down.

The Financial Benefit
It is absolutely true fact that the benefit of a contract hire are numerous. If you opt for car leasing facility you will have an opportunity to budget your monthly rates very efficiently. When opting for this solution you will have no problems with planning your monthly expenses as the sum you are going to pay will be absolutely stable. This is very beneficial in the event you opt for lease not for individual use but for business. It is natural that having ten vehicles leased you will hardly be able to cope with payments in the case of considerable raise of monthly fees.

The Most Obvious Benefit
There is no need to mention about the basic benefit of vehicle leasing contracts. The advantage you will doubtlessly enjoy is that you will become able to afford cars and vans without any need to spend a real fortune. In the majority of cases you will not be forced to take any loan to pay according your car leasing contract. The bottom line in this situation is that by means of getting a vehicle leasing contract you will know your repayments each and every month and you will enjoy zero capital outlay.

So, you may clearly understand there are three incredibly convincing advantages to this type of getting a vehicle but not buying it. Using this option for professional business it makes sense to enjoy all the benefits of getting a relevant vehicle hiring opportunity. If you are lucky enough to use large amounts of money around to invest then it not a bad idea to purchase some vehicle for you business, anyway not so many people are able to spend a good deal for this purpose. Therefore automobile leasing is getting a pretty beneficial option to take. All you need to do is to handle a little bit of research to locate a reputable leasing company.

December 9th-Hearing on Biking in NYC

Re-thinking how we use our streets and sidewalks and making them
safer through design ensures that we are using our public space in an
equitable way to benefit the majority of New Yorkers who take transit,
walk and increasingly, bike. Members of the public
who would like to testify are allowed two minutes to speak, are asked
to sign-up at the beginning and to submit twenty double-sided copies
of their testimony (if you need help printing copies, let me know). Anyone can participate and
it’s an easy process. In fact, streets with bike lanes have led to a 40 percent
decreases in crashes for pedestrians, drivers and cyclists, as well as
lowered rates of speeding, according to before and after data gathered
by the DOT. D) The bike lanes that the City has added in the past 3.5 years are
encouraging neighborhood friendly bike commuting. Here are some ideas for talking points that your testimony could include:
A) Bicycling is great for NYC and for New Yorkers. You will need a photo ID to get into 250 Broadway. The hearing will also look at how well the Transportation
Department has worked with community boards to review large-scale road
changes. But
remember, the more bodies reading testimony in-person, the better! The hearing is
scheduled for 10am, but we anticipate large crowds and a very slow
process getting through security. If you would like to testify but are not able to attend the hearing,
you can submit your testimony to caroline[at]transalt[dot]org. Like sidewalks, bike lanes work
best when they are continuous, and lead to somewhere. We don’t want our common belief in the benefits of
bicycling to be written off as a private interest concern, because it
just isn’t true! E) All of the bike lanes that have been added are a part of the NYC
Bicycle Master Plan, a citywide plan that was the result of extensive
community input. It
is important to speak from your individual experience in your
testimony. Bike lanes improve bike behavior. Biking is a healthy
thing for New Yorkers—counter-acting epidemics like diabetes and
asthma– and helps clean the air we breathe. C) Bike lanes are safety improvements just like sidewalks. Too often it is only people who are unhappy that
are heard. B) Streets and sidewalks make up 80 percent of our public space in
NYC. Streets with
bike lanes have seen an 84 percent decrease in the rates of sidewalk
riding. will be testifying. Let’s make sure that’s not the case on December 9th! If you plan to attend, it would be helpful for you to testify in
support of bicycling and bicycle lanes. Livable streets and safe, sustainable transportation
are in the public interest and these issues resonate with New Yorkers
across many lines. Got this from Transportation Alternatives:
December 9th, 9:30am, 250 Broadway, Committee Room, 14th Floor
The City Council will hold a hearing on bicycling on Dec. It would be spectacular if many of you can plan to attend. T.A. Bike lanes make it
safer for New Yorkers of all ages and abilities to give bike riding a
try. We are collecting RSVPs on our
website so that we can keep track of how many supporters to expect:
transalt.org/events/calendar/4939. 9th to
address balancing the needs of cyclists with those of other road
users. They allow
people to bike safely and they create a predictable place for cyclists
to be on the street. Every bike lane that has been added has gone through
the Community Board prior to installation, a forum in which all
citizens are allowed to participate. This hearing stems from complaints, largely regarding
Prospect Park West, and it is going to be essential that we pack the
room with supporters. You are,
after all, the best of the best! Please arrive as close to 9:30 as
possible, to ensure that positive voices pack the room.

It is absolutely true fact hat these days vehicle leasing is becoming a very popular solution to lending to buying a business vehicle, but it can be a very beneficial solution for individuals as well. Every time you desire to buy a car or even simply rent some auto for a short period of time, vehicle leasing options could be the relevant answer.

It includes renting an automobile, similar to the facilities of leasing a house or an office. When opting for car lease, the finance company gets the automobile of your choice. They then give you a possibility you to use that automobile for the period of the lease in return for a payment that is to be covered per month.

If the automobile is used only for business needs, the repayments charged are completely tax deductible when automobile leasing. It included such issues as renting a depreciation which is your tax deduction.
Benefits
Some of the advantages of vehicle leasing are:
1. Rates can be a tax deduction for vehicles hired for business
2. Car leasing enables you to change your automobile every several years
3. Interest and monthly fees are fixed, so rates are known beforehand
4. Payments are generally considerably lower than a vehicle loan
5. The automobile is used as security against the car lease, so you may expect that the interest rates are normally much lower than automobile loans
6. They provide clients with pretty flexible terms from 2 to 5 years
7. You may get both brand new or used vehicles.

Types of car lease options available
1. operating vehicle leases,
2. finance vehicle leases
3. novated vehicle leases.
It is worth mentioning that the basic difference between finance and operating car lease facilities is at the end of the vehicle leasing term. In the case you opt for an operating lease, the lease lender retains ownership of the automobile leased, whereas in the event of finance leasing, the customer is required to pay out the balloon or residual fees and the client is to assume his ownership. Some issues at the end of a finance vehicle lease are as the following ones: pay out the balloon payment and have the car, trade in the automobile, or refinance the residual payment with some other automobile lease or loan.

It is necessary to admit that a fully maintained automobile lease is a finance leasing option that includes running rates of the car such as different services, tyres fuel, and so on and so forth. This type of automobile leasing is great if you need to have some fixed costs every month.

Novated vehicle leasing works rather differently to finance and operating solutions. In the event you are an employee wanting leasing a car, you are recommended to consider novated vehicle leasing if you desire to salary package an automobile.
