The past few pandemic years have wiped many of the industry expos, trade shows and fairs off the agenda. With borders reopened, especially to international manufacturer and supplier visitors, the business events calendar is once again packed with great shows and opportunities. For business owners attending trade shows and expos with the intention to purchase, arranging pre-approved equipment finance can present advantages. Benefits including being able to establish a budget for equipment acquisitions, short-listing makes and models within the budget, being in a position to order on the day, take advantage of show specials and shorten the time between ordering and taking delivery.
These types of shows offer ideal opportunities to see and demo the latest technology, innovations and systems in particular industries and are very popular and well-attended. Representatives are usually equally keen – to sell. So having finance pre-arranged may put buyers in the ideal position to strike a great deal.
Jade Finance provides plant, machinery and equipment finance across all industries and for all types of businesses. So we’ve compiled a list of upcoming business events which cover many industries for the interest of many of our customers. Plus we’ve included information on the pre-approved finance options available.

Arranging Finance Pre-Show
Finance can be arranged ahead of attending an industry expo through our Pre-Approved Equipment Finance service. We can assist businesses of all type and sizes and across all industries with a complete portfolio of equipment finance facilities:-
- Chattel Mortgage
- Rent-to-Buy for Machinery and Equipment
- Commercial Hire Purchase
- Equipment Lease
Requesting pre-approved equipment finance involves the same steps, processes and procedures as when the loan is applied for after the purchase or after a deal has been made with the seller. The one variation is in establishing a specific finance amount.
Often the purchase price and hence the finance total is only arrived at after the final negotiations with the seller and when any ancillary costs such as installation and any discounts offered, have been factored in.
To account for this, our consultants source pre-approved finance offers based on an estimated loan total. Most buyers will have a rough idea of the cost of the equipment to use for the purpose of acquiring pre-approved finance.
The interest rate on pre-approved finance is based on the rate current when the application is made. There is no differential between interest rates on pre-approved and other timed finance. The finance term and other features and benefits of the finance facility also remain the same.
New businesses that are just starting out can access pre-approved finance with No Docs Low Docs Finance. This is available across all industries and all our finance products. We provide finance for a huge range of equipment from heavy duty construction machinery, manufacturing systems and machinery, IT and computer systems and many others.
Equipment Finance Interest Rates
After a long period of historic low interest rates, the RBA has commenced what is expected to be a series of cash rate rises. The first in May of 0.25% is expected to be followed, possibly as early as the Board’s meeting in June, by further rate rises. As in all lending sectors, our equipment finance lenders respond to RBA rises with their own increases.
Businesses that are in a position to act quickly with equipment purchases, may be able to circumvent future rises. Review our current cheap interest rates on equipment finance and speak with us about the rates we may be able to achieve for your equipment purchase.
