ABN car loans or ABN-only motor finance come under the low docs no docs category of vehicle finance. The name derives essentially from the feature that applicants applying for this type of motor vehicle finance hold little other documentation than an ABN. An ABN is an Australian Business Number and all persons and organisations require an ABN in order to transact business in Australia. To acquire an ABN, applicants must apply through ASIC.

The type of documentation, or docs, referred to with ABN finance are financial accounts of an ongoing business and other records such as income tax returns and BAS statements. Most banks and finance companies have strict criteria in relation to business finance and in most cases require extensive financial documentation in order to assess and ultimately offer the loan.

Many new businesses including start-ups may find themselves in the situation of being unable to source finance through these institutions as they do not meet the criteria. Jade Finance is accredited with many non-bank lenders which are more flexible and which are more open to discussing low docs and ABN finance.

ABN Car Finance Key Features

ABN motor vehicle loans are all individually assessed but the following general features can be used as a guide as to what will most likely apply:-

  • ABN finance can be sourced for both new and used vehicles which will be used primarily in the business operation.
  • The majority of cars, vans, utes and other vehicles to be used for business purposes are eligible for applying for ABN vehicle loans.
  • Due to the higher risk assessment of this type of loan, it attracts a higher interest rate than is achievable for fully documented finance.
  • Conditions are subject to individual lender requirements and in some cases, the lender may require additional security, in addition to the motor vehicle being purchased, be offered by the business owner. Security by way of property or other assets.
  • Depending on the amount of the loan you are requesting, aspects of your individual application and lender requirements, some lenders may request the borrower pay a deposit or a greater deposit on the vehicle. In general terms, lenders do not usually request deposits be paid. However, in the case of ABN vehicle finance, a deposit may be requested to reduce the total loan amount and hence the lender’s exposure to the loan.
  • As with all motor vehicle finance contracts, comprehensive car insurance will be required to be taken out on the car.
  • The tax deductibility and treatment of GST of different elements of an ABN car loan is determined by the type of loan not that it is an ABN-only loan.
