How a truck / trailer loan works

The majority of commercial loans are arranged under a chattel mortgage, in that the bank writes a mortgage on the equipment, and your business immediately takes ownership of the asset. The financed asset provides security on the loan.

Repayments may be structured to align with the cashflow of your business. This means there are options to make repayments weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly, and even half-yearly and yearly. This approach can greatly help businesses  that operate seasonally.

Tax Benefits

Truck and Trailer commercial loans can be structured to minimise tax, as well as giving you access to highly competitive rates.

In most cases, to the extent the asset is used in the business, the interest paid, as well as depreciation of the asset, are tax deductible.

Repayments can be arranged to match the cashflow cycle of your business.

What are the benefits of an equipment loan for your business?

  • Loan terms to suit your needs from 12 months to 7 years.
  • Depreciation and interest payments are usually tax deductible.
  • Depending on your requirements, a residual payment (balloon payment) can be set from 0% to 70%, which can later be paid to reduce the size of repayments.
  • Depending on business circumstances, 100% finance is available.
