What makes business car loans different from other types of finance?

If you’re a business owner, critical decisions are part of the day-to-day running of your company. One of those decisions may be what type of finance you apply for when looking to expand your fleet of vehicles. Some of these include:

How you apply

When you apply for a business car loan, you’ll have to show evidence that your company can afford the car. This includes checks of your business bank accounts, latest tax return and BAS. Applying for a regular car loan will only look at your personal income and expenditure to assess your borrowing power.

What you can use your car for

Taking out a business car loan means you agree to use the vehicle you buy mostly for business-related purposes. Your lender may even assess what type of car you’re buying to make sure it’s appropriate for your business. For instance, you may run a business that needs a vehicle to transport small to medium orders, therefore a ute or a van would be more appropriate than a station wagon.

The tax implications

Buying a car through a chattel mortgage unlocks many benefits that don’t apply to standard private-use car loans. You can claim back any GST paid on the purchase price, as well as the interest on monthly payments and depreciation up to a certain amount.

Limiting your liability

If your business fails, your personal assets won’t be sought to cover your debts. In the untimely event your business does fall into the hands of liquidators, your car will be sold along with other assets to pay off your debts. Nevertheless, you should be trying to avoid this at all costs, as having your assets sold can leave you in a compromised business position.

Things to consider before applying for a business car loan

Checking you qualify for finance is guaranteed to save you plenty of heartache down the track. Ensure you’re over 18 years old and a permanent Australian resident or citizen. You’ll also need to show your business has a consistent revenue and your ABN has been registered for at least three months.

Borrowing within your means can fast-track your application and increase the likelihood of its approval. Take a look at your accounts and see if there are areas where you can cut back on spending to allow your business to take on a new loan.

Know what type of vehicle you want and why you’re using it. Our lenders will let you finance anything from a fleet car to expensive mechanical equipment, so it’s important to know what you want before you apply.

Some types of bad credit are better than others. Doing a quick check of your business’ credit score will reveal the nature of your bad credit. For example, having a few late payments on your business’ report from years ago is better than having recent unpaid defaults for other loans. Making prompt payments will be recorded on your file and help you increase your score.

Cars and other vehicles come with running costs such as ongoing maintenance, insurance and petrol. Ensure to factor these in when budgeting for your business’ new ride.

Frequently asked business car loan questions

You can take out a loan between $5,000 and $100,000 depending on your borrowing capacity. If you’re a small business owner, lenders will assess your revenue, costs and assets when reviewing how much you can comfortably afford. If you’re applying for car finance and you’re self-employed, they may focus more on your personal income and expenditure if your business hasn’t been up and running for long.

Yes – your ABN must be at least three months old before you apply and you must have a steady revenue stream.

Your interest rate will be fixed on car finance, lessening your risk profile. Fixed interest rates protect you from any sudden rate rises and lock the values of your repayments in, making budgeting simpler overall.

Yes – the vehicle can be used for personal reasons. However, your car must be used for business purposes at least 51% of the time as per your loan agreement.

Yes – our lenders work with ex-bankrupts to finance vehicles for their new businesses. While you can technically apply for a loan the day after you’re discharged, your approval chances will increase if you wait some time afterwards. This gives you time to improve your credit score by making timely bill payments.

You will need to supply the following documentation:

  • Your Australian Business Number
  • Photo ID (a copy of your driver’s license or a valid Australian or foreign passport)
  • Your latest tax return of an ATO Notice of Assessment completed within the past 18 months.
  • A list of assets
  • Your business accounts (showing revenue and expenses)

Yes – you just need to prove you can comfortably make year-round repayments on your loan. Some lenders may offer specialised finance that allows you to make extra repayments during your operational period.
