    No age limits with our Equipment Finance

    Many lenders have limits on the age of assets they will finance — preferring new or near new equipment. But we do things differently! As long as the equipment being financed still has a useful life left, we have no limits on the age of the equipment being financed.  We’re commercial finance specialists who focus on helping both small business equipment finance to assisting large scale businesses forge their way to success. We ensure your commercial finance solution is tailored to your unique situation and wholeheartedly aligns with your business needs and goals.

    Balloon payments available for commercial equipment finance

    To help with the serviceability of your loan, you can choose to have a balloon payment included in your equipment finance. A balloon payment is an agreed-upon lump sum paid at the very end of the loan. It helps to reduce your regular repayment amounts over the term of the loan. We can also help with balloon payment refinancing.

    Eligibility criteria

    If you’re a sole trader or business owner searching for the right equipment plant and equipment finance for your circumstances, you’ve come to the right place. While lending criteria apply, we can help you access lenders with flexible requirements — so the loan approval rate through is much higher than with other lenders.

    Unlock equity in your existing equipment with Equipment Financing

    Construction Equipment

    If you need to raise capital and have existing business equipment that you own outright, a sale and leaseback agreement can allow you to access the equity in your equipment.

    This finance agreement is a type of equipment finance where the lender finances the asset (which is used as security for the equipment finance loan), and then you make repayments over the agreed-upon loan term. Rather than using the finance to purchase an asset for your business, you use the finance for whatever cash flow or capital needs you have.

    Essentially, you are selling your asset to the lender, however, you retain control and use of the asset during the repayment period. Once the finance is repaid, it is once again your unencumbered business asset.

    This type of finance can be a good way to raise capital equipment finance and is commonly used to repay tax debt.

    The Temporary Full Expensing Scheme allows eligible businesses to claim an immediate tax deduction for the total cost of depreciating assets that meet eligibility criteria.

    This scheme can be used to reduce taxable income in the financial year the asset is purchased, rather than depreciating the asset over a number of years (and claiming a deduction each year for the depreciation).

    For example, if you purchase a $150,000 asset today, and meet the eligibility criteria, you could reduce your taxable income for the financial year by the entire $150,000.

    The scheme could have a significant impact on reducing tax in the year the tax deduction is used.

    FAQs for Business Equipment Funding in Australia

    A chattel mortgage is a name given to an equipment loan where the lender uses the purchased asset as security. If the borrower does not repay the loan, the lender can legally seize the security asset to recoup their losses.

    The interest expense and other related monthly fees and charges may be tax deductible when the asset is purchased for business purposes. Please seek independent tax advice for more info.

    We can help you access finance for used and new assets. Assets of any age can be considered.
