A Finance Lease is a commercial finance product which gives employees the use of a car or commercial vehicle alongside the benefits of ownership. It can benefit both businesses and employees.
A Finance Lease is a commercial car loan product designed to provide Australian businesses with access to work vehicles. Under a Finance Lease, a lender purchases a vehicle on the business' behalf and then rents it back to them in exchange for payment.

A Finance Lease is often chosen by business owners who are looking to purchase a vehicle or fleet of vehicles, without spending a large amount of capital. The advantage of a Finance Lease is that it allows you many of the benefits of vehicle ownership, without the substantial outlay of capital upfront.
Rental payments are generally fixed, so you always know what you'll pay and when. In most cases the vehicle is sufficient security for the lease, so additional business assets are not required as security. Loan terms are also flexible and can be negotiated to extend between 1 and 5 years.
Goods and Services Tax (GST) is to be paid on both the monthly repayments and the residual value (balloon payment) of your finance lease. Provided your business is registered for GST, some or all of that GST may be claimable as an Input Tax Credit on your following Business Activity Statement (BAS). The GST due at the purchase of the car is paid and claimed back by the lender as an Input Tax Credit.
Tax deductions may be available for lease rental payments, provided the vehicle is used for business purposes, and those purposes meet Australian Tax Office (ATO) requirements. Consult a tax professional for specific advice about tax implications.
Finance Leases have many advantages for business owners looking to purchase vehicles without spending a large amount of capital. They may also, in some cases, be used by proprietors to purchase equipment. Additionally, there can be benefits for employees wanting to salary package a car via a Novated Lease as part of their remuneration.
Finance Leases do, however, provide substantially less flexibility than other types of secured car loans. So, if you do not fall into either of the above two categories a Secured Car Loan, Commercial Hire Purchase or Chattel Mortgage may be more suitable for your circumstances.
Exactly how much you are eligible to borrow will depend on a variety of factors. These factors can include, but are not limited to, your business's cash flow, the type of vehicles you wish to purchase, your credit history and more.
100% finance or no-deposit Finance Leases are available in some cases. Additionally, on-road costs, insurance and warranty products can often be included in the amount financed. For information tailored to your situation, speak to a Rapid Finance loan specialist today.
