Business Car Finance Options Explained
Each of the car loan and finance options listed above provides a different way of getting access to vehicles for your business needs. These are explained in more detail below.
- Hire Purchase: this is a simple way of gaining access to a business car without having to front up with the initial funds. Simply put, the lender purchases the car for you and then hire’s it back to you for a fixed monthly repayment amount.
- Chattel Mortgage: while this might seem more like it should be under our home loans section, this type of finance option is designed to provide business owners with a way to own their car(s) outright. The lender will provide with funds to purchase the car and then they take out a ‘mortgage’ over the car as security for the loan. The would generally register this with ASIC, calling it a ‘Fixed and Floating Charge.’
- Operating Lease: if you’re looking to never actually own your business vehicle, then this option is for you. Similar to a hire purchase, the monthly repayments are based on a number of factors, such as how many kilometres you’ll travel, make, model and term of the lease. Your repayments are tax deductible as well.
- Novated Lease: this is a good option for medium to large sized companies looking for a way to provide benefits to employees without actually have to spend dollars to do so. With this type of lease, the employer, employee and lender enter into a three-way agreement. The lender and employer agree to take the employee’s obligations on. What this means is that the employer agrees to pay the lease rental amount on behalf of the employee pre-tax, paying directly to the lender. The vehicle is given to the employee to use for both business and personal use.
