Jade is a specialist in business car finance and consistently achieves better interest rates and cheaper business vehicle loans for our customers. The business automotive loan category is one of the most competitive in the lending sector and with so many operators, using the services of Jade to source your financing offers many advantages.

In order to be eligible for a business use loan, the vehicle being purchased must be intended to be primarily used in the business and the applicant must, at a minimum, hold an ABN. Business car loans are priced more competitively than personal use vehicle lending  with lower interest rates than for personal lending.

Business car loans are available for all types of business structures including sole traders, SMEs, partnerships, family business and large corporations. Jade Finance works with all types of business customers to achieve a cost-effective auto finance deal at the cheapest interest rates.

Types of Vehicles

Vehicles purchased by a business for use in that business generally meet the criteria for business financing. These include passenger cars such as sedans and hatchbacks, a large range of SUVs, utes and work vehicles such as cab chassis models, light delivery vans and other types.

Both new and used cars can be financed with a business motor loan. The age and features of used cars are often taken into consideration by individual lenders when making an offer. Your Jade credit consultant will discuss these issues, if relevant, with you. If purchasing a used car, your consultant can assist with REVs checks and other verification issues.

  • Dealer purchases
  • Private sales
  • Auction purchases

The full price range of cars also qualify for business car finance, subject to individual lender and Jade thresholds. Minimum loan amounts apply and some lenders will have maximum loan amounts for some applicants.

Business car finance is available for one car, multiple vehicles or entire fleets.

Business Vehicle Loan Products

Unlike personal use auto loans, businesses have a selection of commercial finance facilities to choose from for the car loan. Jade offers the full portfolio of loan products including:-

  • Chattel Mortgage, also known by some lenders as Business Vehicle Loan
  • Leasing
  • CHP
  • Novated Lease with Salary Sacrificing

Each of these business vehicle finance products is structured to suit varying business objectives and accounting methods. In deciding which works in order to achieve your business goals, we advise customers to consult with their accountant or financial advisor.  

Business Car Loans Similarities and Differences

The business automotive financing products include similarities and differences. In general terms:

  • Chattel Mortgage is suited to the cash accounting method.
  • Leasing is suited to off balance sheet requests.
  • Commercial Hire Purchase (CHP) is suited to accruals accounting.
  • With Chattel Mortgage and CHP (when accrual accounting) the full GST on the purchase price can be claimed on the next BAS return following purchase. With leasing, GST is applied to the leasing payments and claimed by the borrower accordingly. GST does not apply to the interest portion of any business loan.
  • With Chattel Mortgage, the ownership of the automobile is held by the borrower from the time of settlement/purchase with the lender using the automobile as security (holding a mortgage) against the loan. With Leasing, the lender retains ownership of the vehicle through the loan term and on finalising all payments, ownership is transferred to the borrower.
  • With Leasing, the monthly repayments are tax deductible as an operating expense. With Chattel Mortgage and CHP contracts, the tax benefit is realised when the business end of year accounts and income tax return is prepared with the depreciation allowance on the vehicle.
  • With Leasing, as the car is not listed as an asset/liability in the borrower’s books, it is considered as ‘improving the balance sheet’ for the borrowing business. This can be an appealing for some business operators.
  • All business car finance contracts have the option for a balloon (Chattel Mortgage and CHP) or residual (leasing). This is an amount represented as a percentage of the purchase price of the vehicle, not the total loan amount, which is not included in the monthly repayments but set aside for payment at the end of the loan term. By varying the residual/balloon, the repayment amount can be varied to suit the individual requirements. Some lenders will have limits on balloon/residual amounts.
