Does your business need a company vehicle for making deliveries,
traveling to clients’ offices, carrying equipment and more? Whether
buying or leasing a vehicle is more advantageous for you depends on
a variety of factors. And if you need several cars or vans for
salespeople or delivery drivers, you may be eligible for fleet
leasing programs that can save you big money.
Leasing a small fleet of cars, minivans or pickups is easier and
more advantageous than ever. Businesses that buy or lease 10 or
more vehicles qualify as commercial fleet buyers and are given a
fleet registration number (obtained through the dealer), entitling
them to all available manufacturers’ and dealers’ fleet incentive
While manufacturers have always offered attractive discount
programs to commercial fleet buyers, there have rarely been such
programs for the small fleet lessee requiring fewer than 10 cars.

What Is a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)?
A special purpose vehicle, also called a special purpose entity (SPE), is a subsidiary created by a parent company to isolate financial risk. Its legal status as a separate company makes its obligations secure even if the parent company goes bankrupt.
- An SPV is created as a separate company with its own balance sheet.
- It may be used to undertake a risky venture while reducing any negative financial impact upon the parent company and its investors.
- Alternately, the SPV may be a holding company for the securitization of debt.
For this reason, a special purpose vehicle is sometimes called a bankruptcy-remote entity.
