What can be purchased with Equipment Finance?

The list is virtually limitless with regards to what can be purchased using an equipment loan facility.

  • From huge earth moving machinery, mining equipment, farming hardware and industrial machinery to smaller items such as office equipment, lawn movers and shade sails - the list is endless!  If the item has a serial number, then it can be used as security for an equipment loan.
  • New or used equipment.  Whether you prefer a tried-and-true used model or its showroom equivalent!
  • Buying privately or from a dealer.  You have the option to buy from a farmer around the corner or continue your relationship with a dealer - the choice is yours.


What Equipment Finance options are there?

We provide 4 equipment loan options to ensure our customers are offered a comprehensive loan solution.  In most cases we can secure finance against the asset being purchased through a no doc, low doc or full doc chattel mortgage.  A chattel mortgage is when the asset (chattel) purchased through an ABN is used as security for the finance (mortgage).   Depending on the age of the business ABN and whether financials are available would determine what type of business loan – no doc, low doc equipment finance or full doc.  If the asset is not able to be secured against a loan, usually due to age, we offer a business line of credit facility.

1. No Doc Equipment Finance

For businesses who are at least 2 years ABN and GST registered whose director/s are homeowners, with previous credit history.  Usually, no documentation to prove income is required, however, you will need to sign a declaration stating an estimate of net profit and gross turnover.

2. Low Doc Equipment Finance

For business who are at least 2 years ABN and GST registered.  Low documentation is required to prove income, usually interim figures are used.  This could be in the form of BAS, bank statements, accountants’ letter or profit and loss statement from accountancy software such as XERO or MYOB.

3. Full Doc Equipment Finance

For business who are less than 1-year ABN.  Full proof of income is required.  This may be an up-to-date tax return and/or interim figures as above for a low doc equipment finance loan.

4. Business line of credit

This type of business facility provides an ongoing line of credit to a predetermined amount.  This can be used when the age of the asset is older than lender requirements.  Most lenders want the age of the asset to be less than 15 years old at the end of the loan term.  So, if you are looking at a 15-year-old bulldozer chances are that you will not be able to use the asset as security for the loan.  A simple business line of credit facility could be the solution.
