Types Of Loans

There’s a range of options available to you depending on your circumstances. Our experts can help to guide you through the different types of commercial loans, which options you qualify for and the potential pros and cons of each.

Vehicle & Equipment Finance

Hire Purchase

Hire purchase is suitable when the asset will be used for predominantly (50%+) business purposes. The product is mainly used by ABN holders – companies, sole traders, trusts and partnerships.

Hire Purchase can also be referred to as Commercial Hire Purchase and Term Purchase. Under a hire purchase agreement the lender owns the asset during the term of the loan. The lender registers an interest in the asset to show others that they are using it as security for the loan.

Chattel Mortgage

A chattel mortgage is suitable when the asset will be used for predominantly (50%+) business purposes. The product is mainly used by ABN holders – companies, sole traders, trusts and partnerships.

Under a chattel mortgage the lender takes the vehicle (chattel) that you’re using the loan for as collateral. The lender registers an interest in the chattel to show others that they are using it as security for the mortgage.

Lease

A lease can also be referred to as a finance lease or asset lease. Under a lease agreement, the user (the lessee) pays the owner (the lessor – normally a bank or finance company) for the use of the asset, based on its GST exclusive price. The lessor registers an interest (also known as an encumbrance) in the vehicle to show others that they are using it as security for the lease.

Whilst you get the benefits of owning the lessor retains actual ownership of the asset. There is a residual value (balloon payment) at the end of the lease. This is an amount that is offset until the end of the term which has the effect of reducing your regular lease payments (rentals).

Operating Lease

An operating lease can also be referred to as contract hire. Operating leases allow an asset to be leased over a fixed term with a set payment (rental). There is a residual value (balloon payment) at the end of the lease. This is an amount that is offset until the end of the term which has the effect of reducing your regular lease payments (rentals). The lessor (normally a bank or finance company) retains ownership of the asset while the lessee (you, the user) effectively just hires it for a period of time.

Commercial Loans

Business Loans

Can be used to purchase an existing business or franchise or to just simply invest to grow. They can be secured by property or even unsecured, although a guarantee may be required.

Business Equity Loans

Can be used to grow your business either via a loan or a line of credit. They can include the option to pay interest only and can be a good short term finance option. They’re usually secured against residential or commercial property.

Invoice Loans

Allow you turn invoices into cash.

Insurance Premium Finance

Short-term business finance that lets you spread a lump sum annual insurance premium across monthly instalments.

Frequently Asked Questions

We provide you with choice by helping you to access multiple lenders. This helps to find the deal that’s right for you. Once we’ve found your best option we take care of the whole process for you, from a professional application submission to organising documentation and transfer of funds.

An application takes around 10 minutes of your time and once submitted to your preferred lender we normally have a decision for you within hours. Then we just need to organise documentation for you to sign along with getting some additional paperwork from you.

To finalise an application we’ll need some proof of ID from you, usually a copy of your Drivers Licence and Medicare card as well as some other items depending on the particular lender and depending on whether your application is personal or business.

While most lenders like to see deposits it’s not necessary in all cases. We can work with you to find the right lender for your particular circumstances.

Terms and conditions vary from lender to lender but most allow you to make additional payments as well as paying the loan off early. If this feature is important to you we’ll make sure to include this as part of the criteria when comparing lenders for you.
