Land Rover for Business
WHEN USED PREDOMINANTLY FOR BUSINESS, OWNING A RANGE ROVER, RANGE ROVER SPORT OR LR4 CAN INCREASE YOUR BUSINESS’S BOTTOM LINE
BECAUSE RANGE ROVER, RANGE ROVER SPORT AND LR4 HAVE GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATINGS GREATER THAN 6,000 POUNDS,** THEY QUALIFY FOR AN ACCELERATED TAX DEPRECIATION SCHEDULE. THEY CAN BE DEPRECIATED UP TO 60 PERCENT IN THE FIRST YEAR, AND FULLY DEPRECIATED IN 6 YEARS.
THAT’S A SIGNIFICANT ADVANTAGE COMPARED TO SIMILARLY PRICED LUXURY CARS.
