What is a low doc car loan?
Low doc car loans are a business car loan option available only to self-employed people and businesses with an ABN. This type of loan is particularly beneficial for business owners who do not want to provide extensive financial paperwork. In fact, low doc means only a small amount of documentation is required to secure car finance.
In addition, the vehicle has to be used 'predominantly' for business purposes. That is, more than 50% of the time for business related use.
At AAA Finance we have an experienced team of finance brokers. Because we have access to over 40 different lenders, we can save you time and money with your next low doc vehicle loan.

1. No paperwork - no problems!
Anyone who is missing up-to-date financials, such as a current tax returns, or simply don’t feel comfortable sharing said documents with their bank, will find a low doc car loan as the ideal solution. With a low doc car loan option you will still need to provide some basic financial documentation to prove income. Please note that every lender has different requirements. For instance, documentation could include business bank statement, business activity statement (BAS), profit and loss statement and / or an accountants letter.

- Approval - most low doc finance loans are approved within 24 hours.

3. GST and tax breaks for ABN holders
Business owners who obtain business ABN car finance are able to claim both tax deductions and GST benefits if they are an ABN holder. Anyone in this situation may be able to claim the interest on the car loan as tax-deductible. Businesses registered for GST can also claim the GST portion within the purchase price of a vehicle in their next BAS. This link to the ATO website explains what you can claim as a tax deduction for motor vehicle expenses.
4. Fixed low doc car loan interest rates
Low doc car loans have a fixed interest rate for the term of the loan. That is, your repayment does not change allowing you to budget for the cost of your next business vehicle. At AAA we work with a panel of over 40 lenders. From this large array of lenders, our experienced team chooses the lender that best suits your individual circumstances. As a result your ABN car finance approval is at the lowest possible interest rate.
The interest rate depends on your profile, credit score as well as the age, make and model of the car you wish to purchase. If you are a property owner who has has been running a successful business for a number of years then lenders view you as low risk. Consequently you will be offered a more competitive interest rate. New or near new cars are viewed more favourably than older vehicles and again the interest rate will reflect this.
5. Easy monthly repayment structure
Loan repayments are set up to be automatically direct debited monthly. This therefore allows you to set and forget and focus on the important things, like running your business. Some of our lenders have no ongoing fees. All costs associated with the loan, such as the lender establishment fee, are incorporated into the loan repayments.
6. Loan terms lasting up to 7 years
You dictate the term of you loan. The longer the term, the smaller the monthly repayment and thus can free up much need cash flow for your business. A shorter term has the car paid off quicker but the monthly repayment is higher. Our car loan calculator is on hand to provide aid in determining how the term will affect your repayment.
7. Low doc car loan balloon payment options
A balloon payment allows borrowers to secure a repayment plan that decreases their monthly loan repayments by paying off a larger amount of the principal at the end of the loan period. A portion of the car value, up to as much as 50%, is not included in the loan amount. Instead, this sum is due at the end of the loan in the form of a lump sum payment. This balloon amount is either, 1. paid out or 2. refinanced, at the end of the business car loan term. For instance, some business owners choose to sell the vehicle, pay out the balloon amount with the sale proceeds and finance a new vehicle. As a result they can tap into any tax breaks AND have an updated new work vehicle on a regular basis.
How much will my car loan repayments be?
By gauging the amount you wish to borrow, the term of your ABN car finance loan and an approximate interest rate, our car loan calculator will tell you just how much you are likely to be paying each month. This is therefore an important tool for planning ahead and making sure you get a car loan that perfectly suits your financial situation.
What is a balloon payment and how will it affect my loan repayment?
A balloon is a lump sum payment due at the end of your loan term. By including a balloon repayment in your loan it reduces your monthly loan repayment. This makes it easier to upgrade your car while still maintaining cash flow for your business. You can either pay out the balloon at the end of the term or refinance it. Our car loan calculator with balloon payment function demonstrates how this type of loan structure can work for you.
