Rent to Own Features

  • Rent to Own loans are an off balance sheet finance facility. The asset is entered on the balance sheet of the lender so it is ‘off’ the balance sheet.
  • This type of loan is often used to improve balance sheets as the equipment does not appear as an asset/liability.
  • The lender essentially purchases the equipment and the borrowing commercial rents the equipment from the lender for a specific time period at a set monthly rental payment.
  • From the settlement of the purchase and loan agreement, the borrower takes possession of the equipment for use in their venture.
  • The borrowing venture is responsible for the ongoing expenses associated with the equipment during the course of the rental-loan term.
  • The rental agreement is usually established on a fixed interest rate.
  • The rental term is fixed. The length of the term may be up to 6 years but is usually determined by the lender based on the condition or working life of the equipment.
  • A buyback price may be incorporated into the rental agreement. Alternatively the borrower may negotiate an appropriate price to buy the equipment from the lender at the end of the rental-loan term.
  • The monthly rental fee is fixed and treated as an operating cost and as such, tax deductible.
  • GST is charged on the monthly rental payments and can be claimed by the borrower if registered for GST.
