Our Financial Products

PErsonal Contract Purchase  (PCP)

Personal contract purchase (PCP) is a popular way of financing a vehicle (usually a car that is up to 5 years old at the start of the agreement dependent on the lender). A guaranteed future value (GFV) is calculated for the end of the agreement.

The GFV is calculated based on the vehicles starting age, start mileage and projected future mileage across the term of the agreement.


At the end of the PCP agreement the user has 4 options:

  • Pay GFV and keep the car.
  • Sell or part exchange the car, settle the finance agreement and use any equity towards a new car.
  • Hand the car back to the lender with nothing more to pay (subject to the car being in good condition and within the agreed the mileage terms, if not an excess mileage charge will be payable).
  • Refinance the Guaranteed Future Value (GFV) onto a new agreement.

Hire Purchase With Balloon (HP)

Hire Purchase with balloon payment is similar to a PCP where an amount is deferred to the end of the agreement (known as a balloon). However, this amount is not guaranteed by the lender, there is no hand back option at the end of the term and the customer is liable to pay when it becomes due.

At the end of the Hire Purchase with balloon there are 3 options:

  • Pay the balloon amount and keep the car.
  • Refinance the balloon onto a new agreement.
  • Sell or part exchange the car, settle the finance agreement and use any equity towards a new car.

Hire Purchase (HP)

A Hire purchase agreement allows you pay for the car monthly over a fixed period (usually up to 60 months). Monthly payments are fixed paying down the cost down to £0. Once the last payment is made (including a nominal option to purchase fee) you take title to the car.

Balanced Payments

A balanced payments product offers  a fixed monthly payment but is a variable rate product which tracks the Bank of England base rate or similar. As the suggested rate goes up or down over the period of the contract, so does the interest you pay at the end of the agreement.

You can have a balloon payment at the end of the term and any interest owed to you (if interest rates reduce) is taken off the balloon amount and if interest rates rise the amount of interest is added to the balloon amount or paid as credit to you if the product is a straight payment plan.

To qualify for a balanced payment product you can a Ltd company, partnership of 3 partners, funding over £25k for an individual using the vehicle for business use (via the business use exemption) or funding over £60,260 and using a High Net Worth Opt Out. (High Net Worth criteria is income of over £150k net in the last tax year and/or equity in assets of over £500k outside of the main residence. 

The Finance Hut Ltd can discuss this product and the criteria with you.
