The deductibility of the lease is based on actual expenses or the standard mileage rate. If you choose actual expenses you can only deduct the portion of the lease payment that is directly related to the LLC's business. So, for example, if you use the car 25% personal and 75% business the LLC could only deduct 75% of the lease payment. Advance lease payments have to be spread over the life of the lease and any buyback payments are not deductible. And depending on the FMV of the car the IRS has limitations (or what they call inclusions) on what you can deduct. I've attached a link to the IRS that goes into much more detail on each of these rules.
Hope this helps.
