Modern life as a business owner means you be no stranger to corporate liability laws, so I was interested to find out how much Business Contract Hire can actually help to ease the worry of this issueFirst of all, for those of you who haven’t heard about it yet, the recent changes to the laws of corporate responsibility have massively increased the liability of business owners with regards to their employees safety in anything related to the business. With regards to contract hire this means that if the vehicle that you are putting your employee into is not safe, and they are involved in an accident, then you are responsible and are at risk of being sued.
So how can Business Contract Hire help to alleviate these issues? Well first of all by taking out your vehicle on a car leasing deal, the car can have a service agreement which will remind you to have regular servicing done and reports on tyres and brakes will happen at the servicing dealer.
Carlease UK can arrange to organise your servicing logistics as part of this and set automated reminders which will be texted to the numbers of your choice, along with a reminder email. This means that the weight of making sure that the car is up to standard is lifted from you, as the leasing company and Carlease UK take control of it. On top of this it means that you will be able to swap the vehicle every few of years confident that you will have no enormous surprise return costs. Also, your vehicles will keep up with the latest standards of environmental pollution as well as being newer models with less chance of failure.
This will reduce your running costs as well as helping reduce your staffs Benefit in Kind bills
