Need New Equipment Finance or Work Vehicle ?
All manner of goods can be financed, from the small home office set up to the multi million dollar manufacturing plant, from forklifts, bobcats, excavators to boats to trucks to planes, we have an equipment finance package to suit, so let us do it all!
There are several equipment finance options available for financing motor vehicles or equipment.
Below is a brief description of each option and we are available to assist you with any option you prefer.
The vehicle/equipment is rented or leased for a monthly payment over a period of 2 to 5 years with a residual or lump sum payment at the end of the lease in line with Australian Taxation Office guidelines.
Leasing is an accepted and well-established form of equipment financing enabling many businesses to access equipment and technology which may not have been available through more traditional forms of finance.
Features and benefits
- finance is generally for the full price of the asset
- allows the lessee to budget exactly for the fixed rental payments and may provide a buffer against inflation and rising interest rates
- rental payments over the term of the agreement can be tailored to fit particular income streams, an advantage to businesses with a high level of seasonal income
- depending on how the asset is used, rental payments may be deductible from pre-tax earnings, however, independent taxation advice should be sought on this and all taxation matters
There may be more advantages to the business in owning the asset and claiming depreciation where the goods attract a high depreciation rate. In such circumstances, the hire purchase finance package we offer may be more appropriate. You should see your own tax advice on this and all issues from your taxation adviser.
As part of a salary package arrangement, this is a three way agreement between the employee, the employer and the lender. The employer agrees to make the repayments per the contract while that person remains in their employment. If you leave the company, the vehicle/equipment goes with you.
For business’ or individuals with a car/equipment allowance that want full ownership at the end of the finance period. Repayments can be structured to suit your cash flow with balloon or lump sum payments at the end of the term.
Under a Commercial Hire Purchase, the hirer contracts to pay hire charges for a fixed period at the end of which the legal title to the property passes to the hirer. Until all the hire charges have been paid, legal title remains with the owner (Financier).
Under a Commercial Hire Purchase arrangement the Hirer may be entitled to taxation claims, however, you should seek your own independent taxation advice, as this may not be applicable to your situation.
An alternative option for business’ with immediate ownership with the benefit of claiming back the GST within the BAS period of purchase. Again, repayments can be structured to suit your cash flow with balloon or lump sum payments at the end of the term.
For individuals were the vehicle is primarily for personal or domestic use. The full amount of purchase can be financed with a lump sum or balloon payment at the end of the term to assist in keeping the repayments within your budget with an option of making additional repayments to reduce the interest payable.
