    Commercial Hire Purchase

    What is a Commercial Hire Purchase Loan?

    Commercial Hire Purchase Loans allows you buy equipment or vehicles you can use now and spread the cost over time rather than paying upfront.

    Hire Purchase is an agreement where a financial provider will buy a vehicle or equipment on your behalf from the seller. You then buy it from them in instalments (including interest) over an agreed period. You have the use of the asset while you’re paying off the loan. On the final payment, ownership gets transferred to your business. 

    This option is suitable for assets with medium value and lifespan, such as power tools, commercial kitchen equipment, or vehicles. It’s great if you want to purchase vehicles or equipment but don’t have the money to pay for it upfront.

    The Benefits of a Commercial Hire Purchase

    Hire Purchase lets you buy equipment or vehicles you can use now and spread the cost over time rather than paying upfront. Benefit from the assurance of fixed-rate repayments and potential tax deductions.

    • Preserve your working capital
    • Use now and pay later
    • No collateral is required as the financed asset provides its security 
    • Easy to manage flexible payment installment terms
    • Fixed interest rate for the entire agreement
    • The asset becomes yours at the end of the loan period

    • Claim the GST included in the equipment’s price

    • Flexible terms from 1 to 5 years

    How does Commercial Hire Purchase work?

    A Commercial Hire Purchase arrangement enables your business to hire an asset from the lender for a fixed monthly repayment over a set period (usually 1 to 5 years). 

    The lender agrees to purchase the vehicle or equipment on your behalf and then hires it back to you. You’ll have full use of the asset for the contract term but won’t be the owner. 

    At the end of the term, when the total price of the vehicle (minus any residual) and the interest charges are repaid in full, your business takes ownership of the asset.

    Step-by-step process of a Commercial Hire Purchase Loan

    1. Choose an asset and make an application

    Identify the asset your business requires and apply for Hire Purchase, supplying all relevant business income, profit and loss, equipment maker and model, supplier information, price quotation, and their payment terms.

    2. Background check and negotiate terms

    The provider conducts background checks, processes applications, and agrees on terms of repayments in consultation with you.

    3. Take delivery of your asset

    Sign your documents, and when your vehicle or equipment is ready to be collected, the finance provider will pay the supplier while you take delivery.

    4. Pay off asset and take ownership

    Your company makes repayments to the lender as agreed and officially owns the asset at the end of the term.

    How to apply for a Commercial Hire Purchase Loan

    Discuss your asset requirements with us.

    Contact principal broker Brin Hayden to discuss your needs, and we’ll begin the process. We’ll source a suitable finance provider and ensure all your necessary information is in order to secure the equipment or vehicle finance you need.

    Organise and lodge application

    You provide the requested completed documents and we will organise and lodge the application on your behalf. In addition to business documents, you will need to satisfy the following:

    • Have a valid Australian Business Number (ABN)
    • Supply account number and BSB of your main business account
    • Have been in business for at least 12 months
    • Asset to be used for business purposes at least 51% of the time

    Gain approval and begin Hire Purchase

    With our guidance, we can source a provider and assemble your application in as little as five business days. The speed of approval will depend on the asset you wish to finance and its value. Because the lender is purchasing the asset on your behalf, the process will generally take longer than other types of business loans.
