Business Vehicle
and Equipment Finance

Are you looking to buy a new vehicle or piece of equipment for your business? Keeping your equipment up to date is a great idea. Whether machinery, vehicles, or hardware, your equipment can impact your business’ efficiency, public image, and workplace safety.

It’s no wonder businesses spend a huge proportion of their finances on upgrading and replacing equipment. Fortunately, business vehicle and equipment finance lets you take out a loan for assets that are used in the workplace. This means you don’t need to pull cash away from your working capital to make these all-important purchases.

Vehicle and Equipment
Finance Solutions

When you’re looking to buy assets for your business, there are three vehicle and equipment finance options available: loan, lease, or hire. Each of these business loans lets you access the equipment you need immediately, with no need for you to withdraw from your day-to-day cash.

Lending criteria apply to all three options. Such as having an ABN, GST registered, and, in the case of an equipment loan, meeting an income threshold. You’ll also need to make sure you plan on using the vehicle or equipment mostly for business purposes.

Come have a chat about which financing option suits your business. We take the pain out of business loans and can help you find the best solution for your equipment and vehicle needs.

Goods Loan
(Chattel Mortgage)

The most popular type of vehicle and equipment finance is a loan, which can also be referred to as a goods loan or chattel mortgage.

To take out a goods loan, you’ll first need to source the vehicle or equipment you’d like to buy. This is then presented to the bank for approval. After the bank’s given you the all-clear, you’ll take out a loan to buy the approved vehicle or equipment, using the equipment itself as security against the loan. You’ll pay off the amount borrowed over the loan term, with a fixed or variable interest rate.

The major benefit of this type of equipment finance is that your business has ownership of the equipment or vehicle from the day it’s purchased, and you don’t spend working capital in the process. There are also potential tax benefits, as the interest and depreciation of the equipment are usually both tax deductible. We recommend speaking to your accountant for further information on tax benefits.

The lending criteria for a goods loan is that your business will need a valid ABN, be registered for GST, and meet a yearly cash flow requirement.


Another vehicle and equipment finance option is a lease, also known as a finance lease. Instead of taking out a loan to buy the equipment you’re after, the equipment is bought by the bank and leased to you for a set period. You never own the vehicle or equipment, but you have full use of it for a lease term that generally lasts between 12-60 months. At the end of your lease, you give the equipment to the bank. Equipment leasing is ideal for businesses using assets that depreciate rapidly or require expensive maintenance.

Leasing may be more expensive in the long term, but it generally requires lower loan repayments compared to buying equipment outright with a loan. This means it could be suitable for your business if you’ve got poor or inconsistent cash flow. Another benefit is that your monthly repayments are usually tax deductible. The lending criteria for a lease is that your business will need a valid ABN and be registered for GST.

(Hire Purchase)

Hiring, also known as hire purchase, is like a mix between a loan and a lease. Like an equipment loan, you source the equipment you require, and it’s approved by the bank. Like a lease, the bank buys the equipment on your behalf. You pay money to rent the equipment over a certain period of time while the bank has ownership of the item. Unlike a lease, however, your intention is to own the asset, and so you are essentially paying for it in instalments. At the end of the hire period, you pay a lump sum of the remainder owning to own the equipment outright, and ownership is transferred to you.

The benefits of a hire purchase are that the interest you pay and the depreciation of the asset that occurs are both generally tax-deductible. Like the other equipment finance options, eligibility for a hire purchase is dependent on your business having a valid ABN and be registered for GST.
