Car lease with a 'seconded' contract

Hi All

I was recently told that I was unable to take over a car lease from another on the basis that my original contract of employment being held by a UK company meant that the Finance company involved automatically classed me as ineligible for lending purposes. (I moved to a group co on a minimum fixed contract, with a review after the fixed period of 2 years to either move me on or keep me here). I found this a bit mystifying as the car is collateral, and I am able to lease a property here which costs considerably more per year than the total repayments of the car

I have an auslanderausweis/permit B so I could stay here 5 years at least nowithstanding the above (no 1 year rolling permit issues to consider).

Has anyone else been in the same situation and found a solution - i.e. have I just encountered the execption to lease companies, or the norm?

I am lucky that I can get my local company involved as a last resort (i.e. they will lease a car for me and I will pay them back) but its more paperwork and am not sure how that will further complicate my Tax affairs, if at all.

In case this issue occurs for someone else, it was simply a greatly exasperating experience from one company only. All sorted now.
