In Australia, there are a range of different types of loans for business available. These loan types include Commercial Hire Purchase, Chattel Mortgage, Finance Lease, and Novated Lease. Depending on your situation and your business, one or the other may be more suitable.
While each loan type has the same overall function (to finance a car for your business), the way they work in practice does differ. It is important to consider these differences when choosing between business car loans as loan features can significantly impact the flexibility and total cost of your loan.
A Commercial Hire Purchase is a type of business car loan. Under a Commercial Hire Purchase, a lender buys a car on behalf of the business owner. The business owner then 'hires' the car back from the lender in exchange for weekly, fortnightly, or monthly repayments.
Once all repayments have been made, including any final 'balloon' payments, the title of the car is then transferred to the business owner, making them the vehicle's legal owner. Loan terms vary from 1 - 5 years, with finance being secured against the vehicle.
A Chattel Mortgage is a type of business car loan typically used by Australian business owners for the financing of work vehicles and work fleets. Under a Chattel Mortgage, a lender provides the business owner with funds to buy a car or fleet in exchange for regular repayments plus interest.
Chattel Mortgages differ to Commercial Hire Purchases in that the business owner is recognised as the vehicle's legal owner from the outset. This makes Chattel Mortgages a more suitable option for business owners who want to own their vehicle or vehicles straight away.
A Finance Lease is another option for Australian business owners looking to finance a vehicle for their business. Under a Finance Lease, the lender owns the vehicle and leases it back to the business owner in exchange for regular repayments and interest.
Unlike a Chattel Mortgage, the vehicle is not owned by the business owner outright. Only after all repayments have been made does legal ownership of the vehicle transfer to the business owner. Similar to other business car loans, terms typically range from 1 - 5 years.
A Novated Lease is a type of business car loan typically used by employees to combine their car loan with their salary package. Under a Novated Lease, an employer pays the vehicle repayments on behalf of the employee by deducting the repayment amount from the employee's pre-tax salary. This is also known as 'salary sacrificing'.
Because repayments are deducted from the employee's pre-tax salary, this effectively lowers their taxable income. This can mean significant tax benefits for the employee. For specific advice about Novated Leases and associated tax implications, consult a tax professional.
Yes! Getting a business car loan with bad credit isn't always easy, but it may be possible. At Rapid Finance, we've helped countless business owners get business car loans, including those with less than straight-forward credit histories. And, we may be able to help you too.
So, if you're finding it difficult to obtain finance because of credit defaults, previous bankruptcies, or other marks on your credit history, call us. We'll help you build your case for business finance, to give you the best chance at loan success. We can even negotiate with lenders on your behalf.
Yes. In some cases, 100% finance or 'no deposit' business car loans are available. In these instances, you would not be required to pay an upfront cash deposit on your business car loan. This could be a good option for businesses where cash flow is limited but regular.
It's important to remember that monthly repayments are typically higher with no deposit loans. This is because the borrower has 100% of the loan amount to repay instead of 90% or 95%, that first 5% to 10% typically being covered by the loan deposit.
In some cases, the Rapid Finance team are able to arrange finance same day. Typically, however, approval for business car loans takes 1 to 2 business days. Approval for more complicated applications may take longer. Contact us for an estimate tailored to you and your business.
For the fastest possible approval process make sure you have all details and documentation ready before you apply. Having to source additional information can be a common roadblock when it comes to business car loans. Organising the appropriate paperwork now can ensure a smoother application process.
