Possibility 1

We pay the car to the seller and you pay us. You will receive a VAT invoice from us for the car (if the car is a VAT car) with the costs of our services included. This way you can book the total amount as a purchase  and write off on it. We do this completely transparently and without fuss - you will know exactly what agreements we have made with the seller. 

You can place the car with your financier or bring it into your company. If the car is also subject to VAT, you can even deduct the VAT.

Possibility 2

You can also pay directly to the seller, we will then take care of the transport, import and inspection of the car for you. However, we always advise that contact with the seller is handled by us. We regularly experience that sellers present things differently than they actually are. Once you have concluded an agreement, you cannot go back with all the consequences that entails.

 

Cost

Of course we don't work for free. But we are transparent.
