  • You are required to have the asset comprehensively insured for the period of the contract.
  • VAT is not capitalised upfront, but is payable on each rental.

  • The asset is not reflected on your balance sheet. The rental is, however, shown as an expense on your income statement.
  • On termination of the agreement, the vehicle is returned to Standard Bank, so there are no tax implications.
