    Lease is just straight forward finance on the car, contract covers servicing/maintenance & tyres etc. all you pay for is the fuel/insurance & tax.

    No idea everyone I know has opted out. There's his own tax code to worry about but I imagine there are company tax benefits that would offset it if it's his business.

    He's better of taking either option personally. If his company buys the car it becomes a company car and is therefore subject to BIK.

    Get him to finance it personally that was he can charge the tax man for business mileage.
