Vehicle leasing, how does it work

In general a vehicle lease can be classified into two categories, operational lease and financial lease. The main difference is that with a financial lease the vehicle is recorded on the balance sheet of your organization, as being the lessee. With an operational lease your organization only accounts for the lease payments as expenses over the lease term, while Athlon as lessor remains owner of the vehicle. The majority of the Athlon vehicles are operational lease contracts. 

A full operational lease contract includes all the costs which are linked of the usage of the vehicle, such as depreciation, interest, maintenance, repair, tires, insurance, fuel card, fuel management, taxes, roadside assistance and replacement vehicle in case of damages. This offers your organization the following advantages:
  • Fixed monthly lease costs, allowing you to easily budget vehicle costs;
  • Off balance financing of vehicles (operational lease vehicles are recorded on the balance sheet of Athlon) allowing your organization to optimize its liquidity position and focus on core activities;
  • Athlon remains the owner of the vehicle and the operational risk, like on residual value or repairs, lies with Athlon.
