I am the only employee of my small business (a C Corp). If I lease a car through the business, rather than personally, how does insurance change? Will coverage be more expensive? What if the car is only used 50% of the time for business and 50% for pleasure? What if my wife is occasionally using the car for non-business purposes?

The answers will depend on the rules of the company that insures you and your driving records. Any car used for business purposes, regardless of whether it’s owned by the business or not, is usually more expensive to insure, though. With the company I worked for it wouldn’t matter at all if it was leased in your name or in the name of the business.

Call your current car insurer, tell them what you’re thinking of doing and they’ll be able to tell you how it would affect you.

Good luck!

Edited to add: Sorry to disagree, Isabella, but State Farm writes these as personal policies with business use quite frequently. As such his wife would be listed as an additional driver.
