An Asset Loan agreement is a commercial loan designed to provide flexibility for people in business while the vehicle remains an asset of the business. An LDV Finance Asset Loan gives you the security of knowing the vehicle is an asset of your business – even while you are paying it off. It offers the certainty of a fixed interest rate, over a choice of loan terms from one to five years. You can also choose to make your repayments monthly or more frequently if you choose. You can also reduce your repayments by including a balloon final payment at the end of the term – freeing up your business cash flow. Plus you can finance options including on-road costs, extended warranty, insurance and roadside assistance as part of your finance package. Asset Loans are applicable to vehicles which are specifically and predominantly used for business and can provide:
i, Input Tax Credit to GST registered businesses in relation to the GST on the vehicle purchase price ii, Asset Loan interest charges as well as vehicle depreciation as potential tax deductions. iii, Ability to reduce the amount financed through trade in and/ or cash deposit options iv, Highly competitive fixed rate for the term of the loan
Asset / Hire Purchase
The Asset / Hire Purchase option delays the transfer of the full legal ownership of the vehicle until the end of the Asset / Hire Purchase term, whilst providing immediate accounting / tax benefits normally only available if the vehicle is owned by the business.
Asset / Hire Purchase agreements provide registered businesses with the certainty of a fixed interest rate over terms of up to 5 years and offer the flexibility of reduced monthly payments by including a final “balloon” payment at the end of the term.
Other options such as on-road costs, extended warranty, insurances and roadside assistance can also be included for convenience and improved cashflow. Asset / Hire Purchase customers will also benefit from ability claim GST Input Tax Credits and to offset vehicle depreciation, Asset/Hire Purchase interest charges, and vehicle running costs against your assessable income.
This is a popular finance option for business customers to lease a business vehicle and free-up valuable capital for other business purposes. Flexible lease terms of up to 5 years with Residual Value structures (within ATO guidelines) mean that monthly lease payments are usually very low and easy on the business cashflow. The Residual Value is agreed and set at the beginning of the term, giving you the following end-of-term options:
– Extend the lease for a further agreed time
– Trade the vehicle in on a new vehicle
– Make an offer to purchase the vehicle from us for the residual payout amount.
Generally, a Finance Lease from LDV Finance provides:
– Financing for vehicles, new and used.
– Finance for all brands and types of vehicles including “on-road” costs and charges
– No deposit is required or allowed, but an optional large “up-front” rental can be structured
– Minimum term of 12 months and a maximum term of 60 months.
– Vehicle must be used predominantly for business or revenue/income generation
– Financial flexibility enabling you to choose and structure the payment terms.
– Ability to free up working capital for the business.
You should check with your accountant or financial adviser to determine how a Finance Lease can best suit your business’ needs.
Novated Leases are Finance Leases for salaried employees who use their vehicle predominantly for work as a “tool of trade” (eg Field Sales professionals, Service representatives etc). They are three way agreements between the finance company (Lessor), the employee (Lessee) and the employer.
An LDV Finance Novated Lease is a Finance Lease between the employee and LDV Finance which is subject to a “Novation Deed” which allows the employer to make the monthly lease payments for the employee (often on a pre-income tax basis). This is an attractive alternative for employers who would otherwise need to provide a company car and an attractive option for employees who are able to choose the type and make of their vehicle.
If the employee changes their employer, the payment obligation automatically reverts to the employee; allowing the employee to possibly “re-novate” with the new employer.
You should check with your accountant or financial adviser to determine how a Novated Lease can best suit your business’ needs.
