No. Being registered for GST is not essential for commercial funding applications but holding a current ABN is required.

The interest rates on motor vehicle funding vary with the different types of products and can vary for different applicants. Lenders assess each application on an individual basis and prepare their offer including the interest rate based on that assessment.

Courier contractors would be eligible to apply for commercial credit to purchase new vans.

To be eligible to apply for commercial credit, applicants must hold an ABN. Online traders with an ABN should be eligible to apply.

Where an individual working for themselves has had an application rejected due to not meeting lender criteria, they may seek specialist non-bank lenders that offer suitable funding options. Using a broker may assist with this process.

Yes. Once approved for funding, operators are entitled to the applicable tax deductions for the credit product selected. The tax deductions vary with the selection of commercial credit products. The monthly payments for Leasing are tax deductible.

Prior to purchasing a new vehicle and prior to applying for credit, buyers can use a credit calculator to see estimates of repayments. Calculators are generic devices and do not allow for individual aspects of an application and do not include lender fees and charges. Any offer may can be different from results received using a calculator.

The decision around which is the most suitable commercial credit product will depend on the accounting method used by the operation; the approach to income tax and GST; the strategy adopted for the balance sheet; and the overall objectives. It is highly recommended that operators refer to their accountant when making this decision.
