Chattel Mortgage

Business chattel mortgage car loans

A chattel mortgage allows different types of businesses to secure a loan against a motor vehicle.  A chattel is the asset or car being purchased and a mortgage is the loan that uses the asset as security whilst regular loan repayments are made.  To qualify for a chattel mortgage, the vehicle must be used for a minimum of 50% business use.  Businesses ranging from sole traders, partnerships and trusts to large corporations can use a chattel mortgage as a business car loan option. There are a number of business car loan options available to self employed individuals and small business owners that negate the need for payslips.  In some instances no paperwork is required to secure a loan.

Types of chattel mortgage

There are 3 types of chattel mortgage - no doc car loan, low doc car loan and full doc car loan.  The main difference between these business car loan options is the amount of financial paperwork required to secure finance. 

A no doc car loan is suitable for established businesses that have been operating for a number of years with the owners being asset backed. 

Low doc car loans are a popular choice for business owners.  Although a current business tax return is not required, interim financials such as BAS, profit and loss and/or bank statements, may be required to substantiate income. 

Full doc car loans require up-to-date financials to secure finance.
