Many companies, big and small, stubbornly argue that buying a car for business is a good thing. But others are the other way around.
Owning property can be one of the reasons for buying a company vehicle. This camp does not see them taking out a car loan or buying the vehicle outright as a problem.
Another camp preferring leasing also has equally strong reasons.
Buying generally requires a higher upfront cost than leasing, and moreover, the value of your vehicle will depreciate over time, making your investment less valuable.
Both sides have more reason to argue, which shows that there are pros and cons to buying and leasing company cars.
Despite the differences, the strategies will have no effect on employees and businesses until they are implemented.
Companies that don’t have a car usually adopt a refund policy. It requires employees whose car is also used as a business vehicle to submit gas purchase receipts as a requirement for reimbursement.
In reality, however, it is common for employees to not present receipts because they are hidden or lost, putting them at a disadvantage.
For businesses that own a car, whether leased or purchased, providing a transportation budget is a must as the car needs gas and maintenance costs. When it comes to travel expenses, they also adopt a refund policy. The problem is that the exact amount of the budget cannot be controlled because it is difficult to detect whether the car is used for business trips or personal business.
The use of the method can however potentially disrupt the financial balance of companies because the transport bill is unpredictable.
It is therefore undeniable that inefficient travel costs are increasingly becoming a central problem when it comes to the need for company vehicles.
Is there any other alternative solution to the problem to consider?
Let’s take a look at ride sharing service companies.
Millions of people are already accustomed to using this type of transport.
Car sharing service is becoming popular among passengers as it provides sensational driving experience.
When they use the ride-sharing service, they feel like they are driving their own personal car.
People’s growing familiarity with ride-sharing services prompted Gojek to come up with GoCorp.
Specially designed for companies, GoCorp can be one of the VTC services that can meet the need for safe and comfortable professional transport for employees or company actors.

GoCorp has additional values that companies can harvest. Companies that adopt the GoCorp system can not only control the maximum budget limit for transportation usage, but also allow decision makers to monitor employees, mobilities, and expenses as it is equipped with a specific dashboard. As GoCorp has no maximum or minimum budget spending limit, it is suitable even for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that need to support the mobility of their employees. All Gojek transportation services are covered by GoCorp Payment such as; GoCar, GoRide, GoCar L, GoRide Protect+, GoCar Protect+.

GoCorp can also serve as an alternate transportation distribution allowance for employees each month.
Businesses leveraging GoCorp can also organize and monitor service usage through the GoCorp portal, as all move transactions are automatically recorded and presented in real-time by the system.
In addition, GoCorp also periodically produces business travel data and information.
